    Default Paintshop guru's, estimate please.

    What sort of price would I be looking at to get this sprayed in a shop?



    Anyone in the south east that does spraying?

    I doubt youd have much change of £100 from a paint shop.

    I have no drama giving it a go myself as I think I have learnt a lot from the last few things I have sprayed and think I could get it to look good. But the paint in the cans is so soft, it would mark a lot easier than if it was done by a body shop.

    Often they shy away from doing "small" jobs mate and often over price because they don't want small jobs. As Lizard say do it yourself. I did my Lip Spoiler with rattle cans and made a pretty good job, cant say the same about my door handles though, but when it works its a great sense of achievement.

    You'll get a better price from a bodyshop if you tell them they can have it for a week and do it whenever they have the time.
