    smoothing/blending

    how much would a bodyshop charge to attach a irmy splitter and smooth it into the front bumper and smooth the line which goes through the middle of the numberplate and all the way round.

    any rough guesses please?

    To be honest prices vary.... get the yellow pages out ring some bodyshops and get some quotes Or have a look in the West Mids section for numbers of some bodyshops that people have used.

    Ideally you would need to make a fibreglass mould of the top of the bumper and mould that into the original bumper as the the lines are quite differance in height.
    Filler isnt ment to be used that thick you see and wouldnt last.

    The spoiler on the other hand should be easy enough. Ideally you would want that plastic welding and fine fine skim of filler to fill out pin holes ect. should with stand a lot more knocks and bumps than the old filler option
