Repairs took a lot longer than expected.
The replacement bonnet is fitted.
It was a lime-green bonnet, and had been part-prepared for spraying. As it later turned out, the bonnet was structurally weak near the front.
The new bonnet is patched and flatted.
Masking for the spraying is applied, and a grey primer put on.
Finally, it goes red. This is before the clearcoat is sprayed.
