Re: Colour of my Rebuilt XF

Thats a sweet colour you've chosen.

how bad was the body of the car and how much did it cost you?

Re: Colour of my Rebuilt XF

I have pics pretty close 2 been finished, I suppose I should upload them, but I havnt had a day off with nice sun so its a little dark, but yeah real nice colour, it was a purple pearl in it, which you can see on some angles, took me about 3months to decide on a colour.

as for cost, about $600 for paint (primer, clear hardner etc..)
It was pretty straight with little rust, cost $600 for a mate 2 do the rust, panels and spray it, I rubbed it back mostly myself.

Re: Colour of my Rebuilt XF

Looking damn nice mate, cant wait to see further pics! This might be one of the very few XF's with some form of body kit on it that I actually like! :)
