Darren, one of our Classic Car Technicians specialising in paintwork has been hard at work preparing this beautiful M3 for a full respray. It’s staying the original Techno Violet Metallic. The preparation phase of a full respray is arguably the most crucial. To achieve the highest quality, mirror-shine finished product, the vehicle surface has to be perfect at this crucial stage.

This M3 will have three coats of the deep violet metallic paint before then having 2 or 3 coats of clear coat to lock in and protect the colour layer.

Once the final clear coat has been applied, Darren will set our paint chamber to heat the paintwork. This allows the clear coat to cure at a set temperature and humidity in an environment free from dust and contaminants.

Even without any paint, this M3 still looks stunning. We can’t wait to reveal the finished product to you all very soon!
