Complete respray cost

PostPost by: Vanden Perre » Wed Jan 18, 2006 6:51 pm

I would like to have my S3 resprayed in the colour she is already.
Bearing in mind that the bodywork is still on the chassis, the windscreen and rear screen still on the bodywork but all other "accesories" are removed. (doors, boot, logo,....) I would like to have an idea of the price.
If one of you had this done in a paintshop recently would be interesting to know how much he paid.
Thanks.

My S4 has Panasports, but the Fiat X1/9 I bought for my wife last year on E-bay had rusted wheels that we almost discarded. We took a friend's suggedtion and had them powder coated at a cost of $80 each and they are better than new. This was half the cost of replacement wheels.

I would budget between ?4 to ?5k for a 'good', bare fibreglass respray...
