Boyz n the(ir) Hood 5 Years, 1 Month ago Karma: 213
It's been 5 years since i got my hood replaced and the replacement wasn't great, with some sealant on it which looked terrible. Then, i got a tear, rip, knife to it and it just wasn't generally well done in the first place.

Just got it re-done and the pictures below don't do it justice - it's a fantastic job. Well happy

It was a guy, Mark Lawless. He used to work for Nolan AutoCare and now has gone out on his own and his company is CarTrim. I've his card in my car - will get them later.

His work is a world apart in terms of quality and finish compared to the last hood i had. And not sure about the rest of the country but in Dublin yesterday, it rained and rained and rained and kept on raining. Checked earlier this morning and lovely dry seats

He said he'd do full leather seats, headrests and door cards for €500. And for those who have the alcantara, €350 (i.e. you'd be keeping your existing alcantara and re-doing the rest in leather).

I'll definitely be going back to him in a few months to get my seats done.

@TurboD - i had tried to contact some of the boat guys but didn't have much luck - one said he might but it was awkward to find a time to suit to let him take a look at it. And in the end, it was handier to go with this guy in terms of dropping it off on way to work etc. I got it done for €520 but he said the price was due to him doing another hood for a converted mr2 spider (Ferrari kit) at the same time. Would have been more. So, after seeing his work, i do really believe it was a bargain (albeit a lot of money).

@Spla300 - if you're ever up in Dublin, let me know. I can't say for sure if i'll be able to head out to meet but i'll try, especially if you're near Blanch. I am afraid apart from the hood, it's not a beauty at the moment ! Body and lots of mechanical work to be done ! Although, if you stand about 30-40 metres away, the body looks fine !!

yes, an interior trim refresh would be nice. Like people - it's whats on the inside that really matters

Will definitely be going back to him in a few months for my seats.

Wow, I'm impressed. It really freshens up the look of the car.

Does it need to be maintained i.e. waterproof sprays etc or is it fit and forget ?
