to be a good job for the time and effort it takes any 9-5 bodyshop would need about 300 quid. ive done one and wouldnt do another unless i was getting about at least 250 for it. these places that do them for like 200 notes, i wouldnt like to see the work and for 200 quid r they going to blend the new paint into the wings etc essential if its gonna look like anything...

i got quoted between 250 and 300 to fill the gap in the middle and over the headlights. is this a good price then? i know that the work will be good as have seen examples on my old car (well of the spraying anyway) near perfect colour match on flame red
