    Default 308 bare metal respray - costs?

    My 308 is currently having the leather redone and whilst there I have asked for a ball park figure for a respray.
    The reason is that all four corners have rust bubbling through, there are a couple on the bonnet and engine cover and there is some micro blistering on the engine cover. New metal will almost certainly be required to the four corners. As a consequence I am advised that a full bare metal respray will be required.
    Given this what would you folks think would be a ball park figure to have this work done (The car is a GTS so the roof does not require painting)?
    And who should I be looking at to do it, assuming I do not give the job to where it is now? I live in West Yorkshire.

    10 - 12K depending on metalwork required is my guess Dave.

    Obviously Charwells isn't too far away. I've had work done there before (paint) and was very happy with the result. Probably not the cheapest but then you probably get what you pay for to an extent. That said, seem to recall GP telling me a full respray of the 348 there would be less than Francis' 'quote'. Maybe that's a north/south thing though. They also guarantee all their work although I forget the time period. Couldn't hurt to give them a bell. If you do, I'd be interested in the answer for future reference, by pm if necessary

    I can recommend http://www.smsautospray.co.uk/pastwork.htm I phoned around a lot of companies for a full resto on a Fiesta (try to put that to one side for a moment - the standard I work to is irrespective of that). Some companies quoted the earth when bare metal was mentioned but based on the results I did not see that value.

    On my project I stripped the trim and sent the car to them rolling, then SMS fitted a pair of new front wings, bare-metalled the entire car - including the entire underside in matching colour, and finished to concourse show standard for 3,300. That was in 2013. The finish remains as it was - one of the better paint jobs I've seen.

    At Aston, we used to subcontract work out during heavy periods. Average ball park figure in 2008 was approx 14,000. Admittedly they were difficult colours ie Glacial Blue.
    I wouldn't sit there if I were you, it's still a bit wet.

    I imagine there's a lot of time/work/money between driving a car in for a respray and delivering a bare shell

    Well those castors at the back make a change from the two metal trays stolen from the local pub.
