How much do you think it would cost to pickup a AU-I Forte front right Quarter panel, i have a pretty decent dent in mine and the whole panel has to be replaced, im estimating $500-$600 fitted and sprayed which is a lot more then im willing to pay for one quarter panel, just wanna get a ball park figure on how much its gonna cost me to pick one up myself, then ill spray and fit it, already rang a couple wreckers but i wanna get a figure on how much it should cost me before i bother looking harder.

Picked up a Q-panel today from a wrecker, $132, no damage, good deal considering a NEW UNPAINTED one from Ford was priced in at $280... I have sanded it back (not all the way back, just to the primer and/or lower layers of paint) and will pickup some gloss / primer / paint tomorrow... should look sexeh

is there anybody in WA that would be kind enough to let me borrow a Spray Gun and a compressor for a weekend to spray my quarter panel. Would be greatly appreciated and i will pay for your troubles if need be.

Cheers
Raz

you can do it with rattle cans, youll need about 4 of the little ones to cover your panel, buts its a mofo to match the colour, especially in different lighting conditions, youd be better off getting it done professionally
