FOR CROSSFIRE DRIVERS IN THE UK

Shield

Jon ("Bodyman" on the forums) has taken his Crossfire off the road and given it a make over. He now owns a rather stunning white Crossfire with black accents and wheels. Read more to see how he did it.

I purchased my Crossfire a little over three years ago. I loved the Sapphire Silver Colour but deep down I wanted white. White wasn't an option in the UK and to change the colour was a lot of work. It took three years to pluck up the courage, and owning a bodyshop helped a bit. In a moment of madness, I decided to get stuck in. This is how it was done. A full gallery of the respray can be found here…
