Re: bodyshop price please

you buy a smooth boot pannel off body stylist about £40 or make a bid on his ebay auctions, then just get it sprayed about £50, or £10 worth of airarseoles

Re: bodyshop price please

You can take the badges off yourself with fishing line/credit card etc. Just heat the badge up gently with a hairdryer first. Then use something like thinners to get rid of the glue left behind.

It may be worth getting a couple of quotes from local bodyshops to see how much you're likely to pay for welding/filling/spraying

Ah. Didn't know that You can still take em off before giving bootlid to bodyshop though The holes left behing would only need a bit of filler wouldn't they, as the holes would be too small to plate over?

@ Dave I think it'll cost a lot more than 50 quid at a bodyshop!

@ phil_gt I'll spray it for you?

Well most bodyshops charge a 2 hour minimum which can be up to £35 per hour & then it'll be at least a quarter of a litre paint & lacquer which will be another 60-70 quid on that!

Re: bodyshop price please

ive seen similar to those before. searching around on ebay i found a onnet skin for a nova that you just pasted over the original bonnet like that and it made it a bad boy. very good idea IMO.
