Painting Bonnet

Just had my bonnet peppered by the council cutting grass verge adjacwnt to my drive
Attempting to make a claim against them but positive outcome very unlikely

Have just been quoted 200 to paint bonnet and 180 to paint bumper
380 +vat

They said that they would to strip all the old paint right back to the grp

I would be interested to know what others have paid

Sounds very reasonable, I paid about 800.00 for bonnet, wing mirrors and side skirts on the Cup, now looks better than new !

Sounds like a good deal, my front end respray( bonnett,valance etc) was 480 + vat but is superb. Just make sure the guy's doing the work know that the bonnet is composite as this makes a difference to the prep time and primer used.

Wish i could get those prices here in Aus, sigh... most painters are too busy to want the work I reckon, and no one wanted to quote less than $1000 (600quid) for my bonnet. so its still faded at the mo...

Bonnet paint

Hi Mike,

Where was your quote from, I had a quote to spray the bonnet, rear bumper, and edge of the drivers door, 800, sounds really good price to me, can you let me know the company you had your price from.

Many thanks
