    What about the engine bay mate? Think it'd be worth getting that done too cos if you're gunna go for a sexy look sooner or later you'll want to be doing stuff to your engine and showing that off too.

    i know, thats one of the main probs, then that involved lifting the engine out, would look superb afterwards but would easily cost £2000 i think inc everything,

    you get what you pay for and if its not done well it will seriously effect the value of the car - I would budget at least £1500.00

    ill have to speak to someone at a bodyshop i know, but they wanted £260 or there abouts for jst bonnet and front bumper so for a full spray i doubt they would b cheap but its all done properly and baked to set the paint,

    As matt said you get exactly what you pay for. The cost is also greatly reflected by the cost of the paint you want to put on the car. A solid is less tean a metallic, which is less than a pearl/mica colour which is dramatically cheaper than a candy or flip paint job. My old man owns a bodyshop and for a decent job i recon matt is right £1500, but that will be any colour u want except a flippy jobbie, which would be nearer £2K!!
