Looks can be deceiving Michael The Paint is crazed after painting with pressure Pacs. Sure as hell if I fork out to have it done in an Oven, someone will run into the back. 80% of accidents are nose to tail in Sydney traffic.

Sean,
You will never have anything nice if you live under the what if rule.
If it’s a bad enough accident, the insurance will cover it.
You will always hate the look of your car.

What about this what if rule.

What if I have it professionally done and no one runs into it?
Then you can really enjoy owning a nice car, and not hate it every time you look at it.

In your other post you mention “you live and you learn”

Your cars are now running the way you are happy with, so do the rest.

You have learned, so do it right now.
Get your rear end and wheels done professionally, and enjoy your car.

Michel has offered numerous times.

Enjoy your car Sean.
It’s very sad, you penny pinch all the time and worry about what may never happen.

Sorry to be so blunt.

No offence Patrick..... Yes I have always tried to control costs.
I recall my Shop Manager telling me that I ran the Transmission Shop on the smell of an oily Rag. He was the opposite, loosing his Service Station and his House being a nice Guy . I was able to buy him a new Volvo from our cash flow ( he was worth it )
I resisted saying to him ... where do you think the money came from to pay for the Volvo. There is a saying in Ireland.... let the moths out of your purse !!!

I know what you mean Sean, and during your working life, I am sure this was what was needed to keep you, him and others employed and the place efficient.

Great result with the Volvo.
He must have thought you were a magician lol.
Above all he would have appreciated you, your dedication and your honesty.

You have worked your entire life, to acquire what you have.
Now enjoy it mate.

I agree,
Don’t waste your hard earned money, but at least enjoy what you have worked so hard for, for all those years.

As I said in my reply "Looks great in the picture" :oops:

I known what result you get from pressure packs, but I thought you were happy and I didn't want to rub it in.
