Actually relacquer my bonnet before...was done at this shop at tampines industrial park....was quite satisfied with the outcome but did not last as long as i expected...maybe 6 to 9 mths...does different quality of lacquer or different quality of labour make a difference ? my car does sun tan often enuf..what sort of protection do u guys use for your lacquer or carbon protection? Btw, was only charged 100 bucks vs a reputable workshop's quotation of min 250 depending on condition....
need to relacquer my bonnet,boot n side mirror asap as they look like pretty bad now... thks for any suggestions

Both labour and type of lacquer do make a difference. I am using JuzzColour's ex painter "Man Zai". Think Jyogi complimented him as well.

He is using PPG lacquer (Lambo's paint supplier), which has a superb shine and protection. However, his price is definitely higher than those sub-par standards.

Pm'ed you his contact should you choose to engage him.

Yup Mun zai is reasonable and does decent work. If it's not done properly and reasonably their fault, he will redo the job.

Long time no see boys! Very Happy
