    Full respray

    Hi,
    I'm thinking that my car could do with a full respray - quite a lot of scratches from previous owner, and it looks like one of the panels has been done at some point anyway. I know how hard gold can be to match up, so was thinkin a full respray may be easiest.
    How much do people estimate this would cost? I have no idea whats-so-ever.

    Thanks

    at a decent place £1500 or more depending on time ect

    if its the same colour i wouldnt recon it would be much more

    also you wont be needing the roof done so that saves £££££'s

    but if you know a mate like mine £200

    Yeah, I would have exactly the same colour. Roof is fine, its just the wings and side panels.
    How easy is it for people to tell its been resprayed? I guess it depends what kind of job is done though. How do they do around the rubber around the windows and that?

Also jus for advice i was quoted between 23 and 30 hrs labour depending who i went to. Ive got the full quotes to hand if u need any help.

    Hey mate. Im in St Dials. The guy with the cheapest quote was £1180 and theyd want it for 3 - 5 days. That was Dale Motors in Newport. Havent had it done yet coz ive been broke jus tried rubbing it out with Forécla lol. Gotta be honest though i just recently had a dent taken out of my door and had the whole door resprayed with new bump strip and badge for £200, TG Preece in Cwmbran, definitely recommend the job is perfect!
