as most of u might know i have an EL Fairmont which i bought at Fowles Auctions in Vic. Anyways when i was looking at it at the auction it had some cosmetic scratches. someone had either keyed before i had a look, or the previous owner had it keyed and didnt repair it. the scratch goes from the front panel all the way to the back panel.......the scratches are deep where the doors are but not as deep on the front and and rear panels. i thought it was easy and cheap to repair but got it quoted for about 900 bux to get both sides fixed..........i dun think so. is that expensive? can i do this myself?

i dun mind doing it myself since if i screw up i can always tell the guy to do the whole respray anyway.

cheers

thats pretty much the going price.
i had my boot and both sides of my car resprayed because it was keyed and it was $900.
that was on the cheap and the job wasnt perfect.

doing it yaself... not that cheap to do it yaself, epecially if you have to pay to get it fixed later.
