Motor traders have got down to a fine art the cost of body repairs in these hard times.We are not talking insurance jobs here we are talking the real world. Autopaint is supplied by mitchells or autopaints to name but two suppliers, using the same materials as sprayed on the car when new even at £400 on materials a respray of 2k is going some! Plenty of bodyshops work on £40 per hour it wouldnt take 40 hours to prepare mask up and spray a gtv, if it did the staff should be sacked and the manager be fired for being on the fiddle! Ive just resprayed the side of a sprinter van for £275 including paint.
