    Paint job + Front bumper

    Hi

    i'm looking at making my 5dr 1.6 into a GSi replica.

    Does anyone have any idea of what kind of price i would be looking at to have the whole car spraied in Arden blue and how much the GSi front bumper would cost? And does anyone have one of sale, or can anyone spray cars here?

    any info would be great.

    Thanks
    There's always room for improvment..
    Doesnt help that im just fussy..

    May need more than just a bumper and spray job to complete a gsi replica..

    Looking at about £3k for complete colour change.

    hi, im looking at buying the front gsi bumper myself for my 3dr, i know that lmf sell it for £425 inc fog lamps http://www.lmfvauxhall.com/prodCatal...x=&deptIndex=2
    but to your question about spraying im in the same situation, i suppose its just finding the right plce that do a good job, unless anyone recomends a place, i would advise to look in your regionl forum as there may be some info in there. Matt

    Personally rather than pay for a few spray jobs i would buy the bits bit by bit then have them all fitted and sprayed at once! Rather than buy the bumper have the whole car and bumper resprayed, then having the skirts and rear and spoiler sprayed and feathered in!

    Been quoted £1200+VAT labour for a colour change on an Escort (pretty much the same size).

    Can't remember how much the materials (paint etc) would be, but I guess around £400ish.
