    Bobby is getting a new life!

    Just 2 weeks ago we went to Blackburn where we bought Bobby Beat from lovely Sarah.
    Bobby is going to be our wedding car this September. After a long adventure, we arrived in the Netherlands and shortly after that we decided to give Bobby a whole new life. Bobby Beat was already in very good condition but because our many years of pleasure to have with this car, Bobby get his reward with a new color.
    A week later, Bobby is completely gutted by the painter. All interior parts I thoroughly cleaned and looking back like new! Today I just came by to look and it looks really good!
    Hopefully Bobby will be quickly with us to enjoy the luxury life!

    WOW!

    Is Bobby still gonna be yellow then?

    Your pics look amazing Tado and I'm quite envious as we're only an hour away from you and could've come to watch the fun! Did you get a copy of all the pictures they took or did you just get to see the final result?

    Great job

    What a great paint job, the car looks fantastic. Looks like you are going to get years and years of life out of this car. Good luck !

    Amazing!

    Bobby looks stunning!! Still bummed that you managed to buy it before I did and you're not helping my jealousy!! It does however make me 100% sure that I will give my Beat a respray as it really does make all the difference.

    Great Job!!

    He looks absolutely brilliant, Dick. Like you said before, he wasn't in bad condition when you got him but you've lifted him to whole new level. I'm so happy to see him looking well
