Plus vinyl wrap has a finite lifespan whereas a decent paint job will last for decades if it's looked after.

Ok so iv gone for painting and the correct graphics kit the painter has said he will fit the graphics and clearcoat over the whole pannels but i have now
Noticed the original honda panels have the decals on top not under the clear ?

Should i tell the painter to not clear coat them or have them on the top any suggestions

Hi. Just joined the forum as I'm in the process of fixing up an NC30. Living in south Wales and hoping to post some photos soon. Does anyone have any recomendations for a painter? Midlands or South West will be fine, if no one can recommend anyone in S Wales.
Thanks

I'm in Swansea, but accept that I'll have to do a bit of driving. I've got no problem with this. I'd be happy to travel if it means that I'm going to someone that will do a good job. I only want to have it painted once!
