No. They might
tell me but Larry (from AAC Autobody) said it took him years to figure out how to paint all the plastics and flex finishes on a LR. I heard him talking about a "flex additive" to the paint. AAC can paint almost anything but they specialize in Rovers and restoring them to "insurance quality." You can call Larry and ask if you want. But I suspect that is a trade secret. Believe me these guys are good...............
AAC is Larry Cox (303) 361-6354, cell (303) 587-0647 and fax (303) 361-6221
I'd say send him one to paint at the same time he does mine but I haven't talked to him this week, I don't know if he's done mine yet, and I don't know if it would match the finish on your D perfectly. Ask him how close to the original he can get it...Because I know you aren't going to send him four to paint.
I haven't even seen my D yet (lots of restoration being done) but I wonder around their shop on my own a lot, have talked to all the guys, and have seen at least 10 or 12 Rovers that they are working on or finished. They do dealer work too.
Now having said all that...If anyone does a search on this for body shops in Denver...Yeah! I recommend them. Top end work at a very fair price. But I do not know what their real "speed" is. Larry told me (nicely) he would take care of me but not to bug him about speed (I needed a deal). Basically..and this makes sense...If you DEMAND it FAST, then he has to put aside his bread-and-butter work to take care of you. That means $. (I am paraphrasing) But please don't take my word for it. Call him.
I also know one of the pickiest D owners in Denver and he uses AAC. (not going to use his name without his permission) But you will never "see" that from him because he hates using email. Get him on the phone though and you better have a comfortable seat.
