    Bodyshop costs

    Anyone got any ideas how much it'd cost me to have the front of the car painted?

    ie wings, bonnet and bumper?

    Its a solid color, non metallic, if that makes any difference.

    Cheers

    Wont make a difference in price for colour as everything is done in base and clear (base coat then lacqured) rather than two quick coats of solid colour. What's the reason for paintwork?.....stone chips?

    Its just a bit of a mess. Bonnet has been painted previously, and some of the chips are showing the green paint of the car it presumably came from. Drivers wing i replaced, and made an arse of the color codes, so its a completely different color (Ming Blue metallic instead of Velvet Blue that the rest of the car is in), Passenger wing has a bit of laquer peeling, and the bumper is scraped and gouged to hell, and if replacing it i'd probably try to upgrade to facelift, meaning getting a matching color would be unlikely.

    I suspect that the actual cost would be waay outside what i can afford, but i thaught i'd ask anyway.

    I'd charge Ł500 for what you'd need doing. If you had a new or good condition front bumper then the price would drop as trying to sort out a stone chipped and scuffed bumper takes a bit of time and is a pain in the behind to be honest. The rest of the job would be pretty straight forward, just alot of prep work and materials required

    Ł400 is a good price twiggy depending on what you had done!!

    Ye thaught as much, Ł500 just isnt worth it. I'll just need to keep my eyes out for a Velvet Blue car being broken, or go really crazy and buy a compressor :P

    I would expect to pay Ł3-400 for that. I'm contemplating getting my bonnet, front bumper and back bumper sorted and I'm budgeting for around that much...
