rite my clubman is in dier need of a respray and all the rust gettin rid of. I have already had a quote for £2000 which seemed very very steep to me, this included:
new a panels, drivers wing, new metal welded in at the rear on both sides, deseamed rear so can run de bumpered, paint (porsche yellow and citroen pasonda blue) and fitment of group 5 arches!
Now im not sure most of the stuff there needs replacing so im looking for a compay who have past experience on minis, near the leicestershire area (but not too fussed on traveling far) and can do a better quote for less than £2000!!!!!
I can get pics of all the problem areas for you guys who know of or actually do spray for a living/past time!
Im willing to pay upto £800 (maby a bit more)
Cheers for the help and any names of places an numbers would b jus as gud!

plan B, go to a place where if they were to do all the work for 1000-1200 or so, which is rather reasonable, and have them guide you on how to prep the body. This may or may not include: Stripping paint, sanding, cutting out panels, fillering, priming.. The more you do yourself the more you save. There are places which will actually tell you waht you need to do, you do it, come back, if its not good enough to their standards, they'll guide you further. That way you save and you learn.
That will be your optimal position as for 800 pounds you wont get away with a full respray (a good one), and replacing rusty panels!

The place i took it too r good but the problem is im a bit scared of mucking up the job, an im not a strong beliver on p38 or what have u!
The panels arnt in bad condition, all the stuff i said was what he though will need replacing, i think the a panels and skuttle is perfectly fine, bit of surface rust to b honest!
The place i went to also said he would help me if i wanted to have a go and would then spray the car for £600 if i did most of the work me self
but i dunt want to spend £600 on a spray job and the rust comes bk almost instant, bearing in mind im only 17, jus started drivin and this money will be ALOT to me!
so i want a gud job

Do the ones that need to be replaced, don't skimp here. As you're doing it primer them... Then save up for a good paintjob.
I'd say for 1000 you can do the whole deal, so if you can wait it out, you'll be set

This is a lot work you want to have done. The price you were quoted sounds reasonable to me. Of course you can find places that will do it for less, but always remember, you get what you pay for.

Why dont you do it yourself, it aint that hard, jus stick loads of paint on and any blemishes can be polished out later.

You should just fix it up where it needs fixing, repaint those areas in the same colour! That way you can afford a quality job where its needed!

The problem with sortin it out and gettin the colour matched is i dont no what the colour actually is, its called SNAP DRAGON YELLOW and i havnt yet come across a car manufacturer dat has this colour (workin at halfords i have access to most colours)
If sumon knows the paint code or even the manufactrer that produces this colour then id love to know then i cud take it from there!

I have just quoted a lad with a fiesta to fitt a panique body kitt, fitt a new door, smooth in the tailgate, badboy the bonnet , fitt M3 mirrors and then re-spray in metalic/pearlesant base coat and laqure and I gave him a price of £2000 , this sounds steep untill you know that the other place he went to quoted £3500 !
I have read in mags that people have paid upto £7000 to have a kitt fited and a re-spray , unbeleivable !
If you like the price it would mean a trip to North Wales .
