    I was quoted 300 to 400, which is bad enough , but 790 is a joke! Il have a go and post my results

    can't you just go get the materials for about £50 from a local car parts store and fill it yourself? leaving the body shop to just do some final prep/sanding and then spray the bumper?

    3/400 sounds like way too much?

    Tell me about it, that price is shocking to get it filled but would look amazing once it is finished. Would finish the back off great.
