I spoke to the bloke who owns the garage and he said that only about £900 of it is for labour the rest is for parts, the price was £4000 and a couple of quid plus vat,, in fairness, their work is second to none and I get three years cover on it too..

Looks a nice job.:thumbup:

You must remember that paint is expensive too (if they have used a decent water based paint,with good lacquer)

Primer/materials+ paint bonnet,wing,bumper,blend door etc.....lacquer is silly money too.
Yes, they used water based paint and a two coat lacquer and all baked in the oven, these pics dont really do the paint work justice but it truly is a good as new job.
