Uh, sorry bout the delayed reply on this one but looking at the Herald pic. more closely this time I realised that you guys meant the bumperguards (or overriders), which have indeed been painted over! Maybe he forgot to tell them to take it off or, as Cyrus says, he's getting a shoddy job done on it (although the paint finish looks good enough atleast in the pic.)...

Do send me more pics. of this car as the restoration progresses...
