Plastic welding isn't very easy and does take a fair bit of skills and patients. It isn't cheap either.

I got quoted $1500 to get a kit fitted and sprayed at sort of mates rate. But no plastic welding, just a straight fit. This was 2 or so years ago.

Wouldn't surprise me if the prices have gone up since everyone wants pay rises.

Just to let you know. Find a reputable place even if it will cost you more than the other guy. Will pay for itself in the end especially if the kit isn't fitted properly the first time.

couldn't agree more with phongus, don't cheap out on a kit it will just end up looking s**t (you would have wished you spent more on the parts in the first place) - TRUST ME mate I know!
