Re: Rough price??

you'll never get a showroom finish from a can at the end of the day, sprayed by can will look ok, but you will have terriable orange peely effect when you look closely.

i would probably say 80-100 ish?

not really, i would say it would probably be more.

for a bodyshop to sand them smooth, primer them, sand, primer, sand, mask up the whole car, spray, lacquer.

your easily looking at over 100 i would say.

Re: Rough price??

Is not so much the orange peel, it is the lacquer used. pros and skilled hobby chaps use professional spray equiptment. rattle can primer is as good but must be a specialist plastic type, the base coat in cans is single pak where as we use 2 pack or water base. the rattle can will be fine. The lacquer is the difference, 2 pack is sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo ooooooooooo
much tougher. and gives a better finish.

A bodyshop will charge the amounts suggested.

It can be done with tins and on areas like these the finish will be fine, if you do it correctly!!! and spend more time on it, and use quality paint products!!

It will not be as durable as a pro finish though.

hope this helps

Re: Rough price??

Bump strips look sh*t - just take em off and save all the hassel.

...Unless you paint them to contrast the body - where you may notice up to20bhp gains

not cooL!!

If u take them off, you have to get the car smoothed, so thats adding more hassel

I had a punto mk2b - took them off no probs no holes just the sticky sh*t -which wasn't 2 bad when you use a rubber drill head and industrial buffer(carefully )

Depends on model

Depends on model
the model is a Stilo not looked at whether its adhesive or clips on these.
Just dont park in supermarkets if you remove the bump strips, they do serve a purpose.
