hmm well u could get it panel beated or get a new front fender from fords or the wreckers.
dont really know about the price but when i got a new rear bumper for my ef it was around the $700 mark.
i found that quotes between different panel beaters seem to vary alot so shop around

i am thinking that most of that should buff out...

nah sorry.. most of that will pull out with a plunger.. shop aroun ring wreckers and so fourt maybe they might have a same colour guard etc etc.. ring around cause really the excessmight be the same or close to a price a repair job will cost.

I'd say try and find another guard. It'd probably be cheaper.
After repairing the dents and removing the creases and then repainting it....yep get a new one.

New guard for sure - Probably cost you a $100 at the wreckers then all you need to do is have it sprayed and maybe fitted if you arent confident in doing so.

definatly just replace the guard with the same coloured 2nd hand guard.. or just get a new guard sprayed and fitted... way less labour...

how handy are you with tools.... thought about getting a 2nd guard getting it resprayed and fitting it yourself would have to save you like 100 or so dollar

$550 is a bit on the high side for a simple spray and fit.

To spray a guard its about $150-200. Buy the guard - $150-200 again.

I'd definitely just get one sprayed and fit it myself, thats if I couldnt find one the same colour like fordfreak ef suggested.

hey mate what colour is it? I've got a good condition guard in what I think is sparkling burgundy. You can have it if you would like.

Just send a PM if it matches.
