Was wondering how much most bodyshops etc. charge for a bodywork overhall, nothing major just a few stone chips, couple of tiny dents needing fixed.

got 2 5p-ish size dents above a rear arch, another on rear door, teensy bit of broken lacquer on arch behind rear door, a wee lump of hardened touch up paint, so I just want these rectified as though the car was only a couple of years old.

I'm not expecting to have an R reg in factory condition, just good condition but anyway, how much'd you reckon folks??

cheers.

Dents could be fixed at a garage that do autodent repairs. from £25 per dent, might find it cheaper tho.

The other bits should be cheap to repair, you could even do it at home with the right tools. removing dents without painting/filler i would leave to the pro's ;) there on big money because its a skilled job.

how many stone chips are we talking here. depending on your colour you can get paint pens from halfrauds etc for cheap. they do the job, not the crayon type ones but the tipex type ones.

I covered up my rusty arches today with a tin of paint from halfrauds and just lapped it on over the rust. its too much to try and save this car as the rust will eat right through it again in a few months. but atleast you cant tell its rusting now unless i point it out or you rub your hand over it :D
