Hi all just a little warning when lowering your ST.....Tell the wife!!

On cleaning my pride and joy i've just found some serious lower front bumper scratches and some lovely new wheel damage...ahhhhh! Also she now is close to not wanting to drive it due to "
harsh ride" apparently. Personally i'm loving the new handling but now have an issue with these peeled scratches.
Does anyone know how to rub down/sand? these smooth again?

P.s do you get Perf.blue touch up paint?

Cheers

Yes you can get a touch up kit paint and lacquer, try Pumabuild or your dealer. If its too bad best get chips away etc to repair it.

Hi mate best to use body shop supplier who can mix some up for you. Email me to let me know the areas and I can tell you where to go to get it mixed. Some places can actualy put in a spray can. You will also need clearcoat. I just had the alignment done and you might want to do this as it helps the feel of the car . This might help your wife a little . Cost £50

Regards Chris

Just buy the touch up paint from your ford dealer, £12 I think I got mine ages ago so can't remember. And the match is pretty good I can't tell the difference.
