    How much for......

    ...a respray of a bonnet?

    Crashed my poor brum brum today. Went into the back of a woman in a little 206 coz she slammed her brakes on while going downhill and I had a full car, so couldn't stop. Ironic thing is, her wheels didn't have a scratch on whereas mine's got no lights and a bent bonnet now. At least she just drove off like.

    Nah man I'm just pleased she didn't try a whip-lash bollox on me. I'd have been screwed if she did that.

    So does nobody have any ideas of how much should be charged for a full bonnet spray?

    They'll have to blend in the tops of your wings too, for the colour match.

    IIRC i had my GSi bonnet sprayed at my Vauxhall dealer for around £150. (i can't really remember)

    It'll be worth you going round some local body shops and getting a quote, while your there ask to see some of he work they've done.

    £150's not bad. I went to a back street bodyshop yesterday and he said £190 for the bonnet and the worst part was 5 hours work to fill in my aerial hole and paint that too. Fackin jowk!
