  • 27/09 | Bonnet Painting Grand Finalist - Kieran Purton (23)

    How did you get into painting cars?

    I had a friend who owned a bodyshop called Autoshack in Woodbridge, Suffolk. I volunteered to help weekends and it all went from there really. I started prepping and painting simple panels and really enjoyed it. I then got into classic restoration and custom paintwork.

    What is the design idea behind your bonnet?

    I wanted to paint a design around the Farécla logo. I didn’t want to do a design and then add the logo in somewhere afterwards. I was originally going to do a combination of airbrush scales and lacework in the four panels but decided that the fans radiating out of the logo would draw attention to the logo more effectively. I custom mixed the silver I used for the fans so that it would change appearance from different viewing angles. I wanted my design to keep getting better as you moved out of the centre so added House of Kolor metal flake onto the outer panels. I incorporated subtle features into my design like curving my pinstripe lines at the front of the bonnet but keeping the lines square at the back. A low rider style bonnet was the main idea.

    The bonnet I used was from a Mk1 Caddy because I have always been into Volkswagens and own a 1987 Mk1 Caddy. I actually got the bonnet from VW Heritage, they were kind enough to sponsor me the bonnet and also give me an awesome tour of their HQ!

  • 28/09 | Bonnet Painting Grand Finalist - Charlie Clark (20)

    How did you get into painting cars?

    I actually started out as an apprentice mechanic but I felt that I wanted to do something a bit more creative. I’ve always enjoyed art and thought that car painting was a good trade to get into

    What is the design idea behind your bonnet?

    My family has been quite involved in classic cars over the years and so the idea is looking back on classic car racing. Using the colours that I was given to comply with the competition rules, I have incorporated the look of a classic racing car.

  • 26/09 | Bonnet Painting Grand Finalist - Rhiannon Murfin (20)

    How did you get into painting cars?

    I thought it looked cool and did it at South Devon college for three years and then I got an apprenticeship last year with VW, through Motofix. My Dad has always been interested in cars so I have been brought up with it.

    What was the idea behind your design?

    I thought it would be a bit different because it is meant to be an optical illusion. It was a bit challenging to get it looking right. When I was at college for the first time I entered a bonnet competition they ran internally, I did an anchor on it, but that was the only time I have ever tried anything like this.

  • 14/09 | Farécla Apprentice and Student Bonnet Painting – Grand Finalists

    It’s been tough whittling down to our Grand Finalists and we’re hugely appreciative of the time and effort put in by all entrants.

    In light of how close some entries have been, we have selected five Grand Finalists, rather than four as originally planned.

    Farécla Marketing Manager David Stokes explained: “In discussion with our Senior Paint Technician, Mark Taylor it was clear that in his estimation 5 bonnets (including the public’s choice announced yesterday) stood out, with it being a very close call as to which one would miss out if the Grand Final featured only four bonnets as originally planned, so in keeping with the competition’s aim of encouraging young painters, Farécla took the decision to put up extra prize money and bring all five bonnets to our offices to contest the Grand Final”

    Congratulations to the five Grand Finalists
    Grand Finalists (L;R): Elliot Campbell (The Figaro Shop, Didcot), Charlie Clark (Apollo Group, Dover), Rhiannon Murfin (Motofix, Exeter), Kieran Purton (The Colchester Institute), Agnieszka Szenfeld (Motofix, High Wycombe)

    The Grand Final will take place at the Farécla UK offices on Wednesday, 3rd October when the winner and runner up will be chosen by a panel of 3 expert judges: George Sneddon, Global OEM Technical Program Manager at Akzo Nobel, NCRC’s Daryl Head, Silver Medallist at World Skills Abu Dhabi, and Tom French, Graphic Design and Brand Manager at Farécla.

  • 04/09 | Farécla Launches Revolution in Polishing Technology

    Bodyshops up and down the UK are giving a hugely enthusiastic reception to Farécla’s radical new G360 Polishing System which is launching formally today (Tuesday 4 September).

    Feedback from bodyshops who have been trialling the system over the last six months includes:

    “Great results without P3000. Faster, and less reworks.” – Rye Street Group

    “It’s the perfect system.” – Bryan Robson Coachworks, St Albans

    “No need for P3000, so cost-effective, faster system.” – Halliwell Jones, Chester

    “Absolutely brilliant!…I’m really impressed with it.” – BMW, Fairfield

    With the emphasis today on key-to-key times and reducing spend, the Farécla G360 system presents an opportunity for bodyshops to make significant cost savings via a faster, leaner polishing process.

    To make the G360 System easy to adopt, bodyshops can buy a Compound Starter Kit KT3001 for all colours, and for blacks and dark colours only, there is an additional Finish Kit KT3006. The only other element is the system’s recommended back plate, the G Mop Flexible Back Plate GMB146.

    Each kit is packaged in an innovative fully printed triangular box that details the G360 System products and process, and each printed kit box contains a process chart for display on the bodyshop wall.

    As an additional introductory incentive* for bodyshops, some distributors are offering a free G Mop Flexible Back Plate GMB146 with first purchase of Compound Kit KT3001.

    This flexible back plate gives the best results with the G360 system and comes strongly recommended.

    David Stokes, Marketing Manager at Farécla commented: “A lot of bodyshops are initially sceptical about being able to polish faster without P3000, but once they’ve tried it, they end up calling the G360 System a ‘game changer’, such is the value of its many benefits. As well as the cost savings, and speed and ease of use, triallists are also telling us they see a reduction in reworks with G360.”

    For more information on Farécla’s new G360 System visit https://www.farecla.com/G360 or call the Farécla Customer Services team on 01920 465041.

  • 24/09 | Bonnet Painting Grand Finalist - Elliot Campbell (24)

    How did you get into painting cars?

    I have always been interested in the car trade. When I first started I began as an apprentice mechanic and am a Level 2 mechanic. I joined here to do mechanical work but I actually like polishing cars and detailing and my boss said I would probably be quite good at painting. It wasn’t something I had previously considered but decided I would like to do painting and haven’t really looked back.

    What was the idea behind your design?

    I knew what I wanted it to look like but I never had a solid drawing. I knew I didn’t want to do a massive bonnet purely because I had to keep it 1m by 1m. I was going to do a hot rod bonnet but it was hard to integrate the design with that so I looked at the classic MINI bonnet, I liked the shape of it and an old school friend of mine he had a MINI that he was building and thankfully he let me have the bonnet which I paid him for. It was a bit tatty and dented just through its age and had defective paint on there as well, so I took it all back to bare metal. On the Farecla competition website it showed basically a yellow stripe on several examples so I knew I wanted to put a stripe in and with having the MINI bonnet as well, being a classic bonnet they have a white stripe on some MINIs so a yellow stripe worked quite well as part of the design in the original realm but with a Farecla twist.

  • 25/09 | Bonnet Painting Grand Finalist - Agnieszka Szenfeld (21)

    How did you get into painting cars?

    I was looking at the government apprenticeship website and it shouted at me because I have always been interested in cars and I liked the idea of restoring cars to their former glory. I had been stuck in retail for about three years and before that I was working in a factory and I had had enough of moving from one dead end job to the next and wanted to see if I could get a career going.

    Eventually I would like to move on to fine detailing/airbrushing. The first time I tried it was for the Farécla competition. It was a completely new thing for me. I just borrowed a brush gun from a tutor at Babcock. In my spare time I design tattoos and portraits of pets, I love drawing animals. One of the things I have been able to do because I work here is to use the excess paint, which usually gets thrown away, for painting at home on canvasses and I use it for designs on helmets and get creative with it.

    I love everything about this job; working physically not just being sat at a desk or on a shop floor. I like the atmosphere here. I feel I am in my element and I love the fact that I am constantly learning and that I can progress with this so much. I am so glad to have joined Motofix because they are absolutely brilliant.

    What is the design idea behind your bonnet and how did you come to it?

    The design idea is linked to everything to do with the bonnet competition and directed to Farécla. My first thought, Stallions, came from the quite obvious connection with cars, but not everyone seems to relate to it, horse power. So I decided to go with a black Stallion because they are known to be the fastest horses, the middle one which is Farécla branded, they are meant to be racing and that one is winning the race, it is crossing the finishing line first so it is the best and they are the leading company and then it is a finish line because they specialise in finishing/polishing products.
