Hi, does anyone have an idea of cost to repair this paintwork? Colour is still ok but lacquer is coming off on bonnet and boot panel!!! Is this a common problem and anyone had it fixed ?

Hi Beau4 (actually Beaufort, is a name of a quite nice french cheese) :)


So, I got the front of my car resprayed here in France and it costed me about 500€ (there was a bit of metal work done as well).

in the past, I got the shell totally resprayed for 1500€, it was down to primer. I did all the metal repair on that one, sanding and everything but keep in mind the workshop is likely to apply its own sanding and prep anyway, just to be sure of the result.


the price for painting varies orders of magnitude sometimes. best is still to ask around and go visit the shops yourself. you can tell a lot of how a bodywork shop is doing by just seeing it in action.
