my car has s**t of paintchips and big a** scratches on the front bar and rear bar due to mega scrapes and paint chips on the lower of the bonnet. Does anyone have a rough idea on a ballpark figure to respray the bonnet and front/rear bars in white (color of my car already).

You'll be looking at around $700. More if you have XR lights and want them painted too.

Probably better off saving the extra $ for a complete respray, definitely worth it. :wink:

i used touch up paint (spray on stuff) on my skirts as they were f**k, tar all over em and that, and they come up a treat, but im not usin it on the body as it doesnt realy have that glossy finish to it. IM thinkin i might just wait until i get what i want done to the driveline/engine then save up for a respray. my mates old man is a panel beater so should be able to get mates rates, plus i dont think white is an expensive color!

But all your paint looks perfect in those little avatars :D

Good to see im not the only one with a scraped up front bar (its comforting). I have a mate who is more than keen to help me with a respray (has all the gear and exp). Im just not sure where to get good paint from, without being ripped off.

How much would a complete respray for a EF with Heritage Green paint cost?
