Thanks Matt. So flat along the length of the cut so it can’t crease? Will definitely do that so it’s done if needed.

Let us know how u go with cargo doors
So the gaps were fine when I dropped it off and the front cargo door did crab at the top so a trim was required for clearance along the top of the cargo door frame to correct that. They took the doors off, paint stripped the primer, then EP primed them and now when refitted the gaps are up the shit. Can’t for the life of me workout how metal can change that much without some human interaction (fuck up). To top it off the doors are also bulging out further than the body.
Had to walk away and cool my heels, going back in the morning to have a closer look and hopefully work it out.

What did they use to strip the paint. Sand blasted? Maybe warped?

Na, all done with paint stripper. Matt gave me a call this morning and made a few suggestions. Should be fine just need to be man handled back into position.

Will update on our achievements.
Cheers

You're certainly knocking them out Beatts!
No matter what happens they can't take you out in the street and shoot you......

Thanks Brad. Turquoise L380 and either pearl white L87 or blue white L289. At this point I’m leaning towards Blue White

Thanks Greg. I’m looking forward to seeing it in colour, been at the paint shop since December 2021.
