    price to respray an area: 4cm x 90cm

    Any ideas of an average cost to respray something thats about 4cm x 90cm (like a thin rectangle).

    Basically the price should include the prep/sanding down too.

    I've just been quoted a price of £60 and cant work out if thats a really good price, too cheap or whatever?

    Comments?

    £60 sounds okay !

    considering, prep, primer, paint etc ...

    I would pay that...besides, if you're talking about bump strips - there's a fair amount of work in preparing them

    yea, it seems a good price. just wasnt sure because another place has quoted me £150 :s

    both seem a reputable company though, it was just the big gap between the prices through me off..

    Bodyshops usually buy the paint in bulk, so the more you take to get done the cheaper each job can be done for, if you go in with one small job it will work out more expensive as they have to go out of their way to order in a small amount of paint. Recently been in the same situation and had all this explained to me, so i done it myself for a tenner lol

    ahh! because i was also thinking of getting my front splitter sprayed at the same time (any ideas on a rough cost for that?) i can ask the bloke when i go back to the bodyshop on monday for the work to be carried out.

    I was going to do the splitter myself though originally, but if its not much more expensive, may aswell ask him to do it
