New member, London. Vito 115. Bespoke painter

Hi,

I'm a new member to the forum and thought I'd introduce myself before joining in!

My name is Lee, I live near Heathrow, working in Camberley as a bespoke automotive painter. I've been in the industry for about 15 years and was lucky enough to start out in prestige cars such as Porsche, Ferrari, Merc and so on. In 2004 I got offered a job at McLaren and spent 6 years there on the SLR project along with other special projects. After McLaren I spent 2 years at Altamura Concepts in Camberley working on custom bikes and other custom projects.

Over the past year I've worked hard with my business partner Jason to open our own Paintshop going by the name UNIT24 Ltd. We worked together at Mclaren and Altamura and are aiming at the bespoke, prestige and super car's as well as custom paint on bikes, boats...just about anything that can be painted!

So if you have any paint related questions I'm sure I'll be able to help in some way even if its doing the job in hand. Please don't hesitate to ask.

Right that's enough of all that here's me van

2007 LWB Vito 115 I bought it about a month ago and have already started putting my mark on it.

This is how it is now






I have a few plans most of witch are already in my possession, lowering springs, front bumper lip, colour coding of mouldings and handles and possibly a colour change in the near future. Going to remove the side rails as chrome is for boats and just not my bag at all so if anyone would like them before I put them on eBay feel free to make me a offer

Also big AMG brake kit soon oh and I've got a little something special in the way of wheels, I'm sure some or you may recognise them


I've got a few small problems with the van, but hope to be able to seek advice on here as and when I start working on them! Looking forward to receiving our comments and if I can help out in any way, please don't hesitate to ask.

Many thanks

LeeLee!
