    Rough respray cost?

    I know its impossible to figure out over the internet, but i was wondering if anyone has had a full respray on their MK4 Hatchback, im looking for a rough idea on price, it will be changing colour but it will be an OE colour from Ford probably.

    Cheers

    If its a self prep job thenin regions of £500 if the body shop do the prep then your looking well over a grand.

    We had a car in at work the other day and someone had keyed every panel, when i did the sums it worked out around £1500+vat and that was at very cheap labour rate in the trade is around £35 per hour

    I'd say £1500 for a same colour respray, £2000+ for a colour change.

    i've been quoted 3000 to have mine sprayed the same colour and that is mates rates. and he is shit hot at his job if he gets one imperfection he will do it again.

    i know people that have had the 500quid jobs and they say how crap it is after a few months

    I see its varying alot then

    Best get to some shops and see what they say, its going to be a total colour change so its going to hurt the wallet by the sounds of it
