700, does that include the paint? If so, thats not a bad price already for the amount of work and equipment that should go into doing a good job! Im sure you can get it done cheaper, but with the reputation of pretty much all local bodyshops being dodgy to say the least, the last thing you want is a half-arsed job, or one not warrantied/through the books.

withthat

Although to add, everything can be done to a price. Ive seen one guy do 1 full respray for 400 and it was a 400 respray, Ive see the same guy charge 1000+ for resprays and do a mint job.

The more you pay, the more time he will spend on it, and get a better finish - schimples grin

Ron Bell & sons based in Hooton did the respray on my old nova years back, was a good job for the price.

Do some prep work and it will work out cheaper, like taking trim off etc.

It's the labour which bumps the price remember.

Agree with prep work, this is a good chuck on the work.
If you buy your own paint, don't buy it from Autopaints in Birkenhead. Everytime I've used them they've f*cked up, and generally can't be arsed even colour matching.

I`m getting my astra done soon for 400, but for that iv`e got to strip all the interiour out, the bumpers off etc, windows out, bodykit off and already stripped the primer off and bought a new bonnet (don`t want to repair the old one which has rot under the lip) smile

from the a41 follow it down, go past the train station, then turn left onto the industrial estate, follow it to the end and you will see them.
