    I had the front end of a focus sprayed for 225. that was the bonnet wings and bumper. go to a small car lot and ask them to point you in the direction of who they use. its more a case of who you know and shopping around when spraying is involved.
    and if it is something as simple as mudflaps do it yourself with spray cans. it won't cost more than 30 quid for the paint. just take your time with it and do light coats if you haven't done it before. its pretty easy.

    Have you tried the stealers (assuming they have a bodyshop)

    100 quid is far too much tbh

    thanks for the comments guys i have painted them myself with paint from the stealers and it is not a very good match. also when they have flexed the paint has cracked so want to get them done properly.

    will have to call around a few places but not paying £100. was thinking of getting the vxr rear spoiler aswell but may need to re-mortgage to get them all painted

    Seems rather expensive to me, I had a mate that sprayed them on my last vec, I just bought the paint for £20.00, again as said before it's who you know. Shop round and I'm sure you'll get it done cheaper. £25.00 to have each sprayed sounds alot when the paint for all of them will cost less than that!

    These sprayers do have to make a living though.

    You've got to remember... To get a good smooth finish the bobbly plastic will need sanding down and high build priming...

    Pain in arse for any painter, Take a complete smooth panel and they'll quote you peanuts... My mate makes me prep all my pain in the arse bits
