z500 Restoration Project – The Rebuild — Part 1

So after a very short wait (3 days) got a call from Bournes to say the powder coating was ready to collect, this was quickly followed by a call from Howells to say the chroming was done. I then got an email from Mick at Custom Paint to say the paintwork was ready to collect.

So I cleaned out the car and went to collect all of the bits on Saturday 21st Jan 2012! Then realised I needed to go to the bank and get some cash to pay for it all.

So first to the powder coating, I had been recommended by three different people that Bournes was the place to go and they didn’t disappoint. The frame and bits look great and it was all done very quickly and at a very reasonable price.

Again, Howells were recommended by several people and they have done an excellent job on the chroming.

Then the Piece de Resistance! The paintwork from Mick at Custom paint is absolutely brilliant and what a truly nice bloke!

The RED is so deep and bright and the finish is stunning!

So if you want Powder Coating, Chroming or Paintwork, I would wholeheartedly recommend all of the three companies below……
