Bodywork estimate

This is the section to see what is hidding behind those panels, and how to get rid of the tin worm, cutting out and welding in fresh metal, protection and paint.

Would it not be easier / cheaper to source a replacement bumper in the right colour :)

It is not that hard of repair ,it would mainly be down the the prep work, it will be a full hit on the nose cone, unsure if there would be a need to blend in to the other panels? cannot comment on cost ,it is not my area, but i have texted Garath to jump in ,he will know better than anyone buddy. :handgestures-thumbup:

Cheers Wayne, much appreciated.

I have been sniffing around on eBay for a new one, and I have seen a couple in silver, just worried they won't be an exact match. I did let one slip that looked in great condition for ÂŁ30.

The cheapest option would be to find a bumper in the right colour, assuming you can fit it yourself

To repair and paint your existing bumper would be around ÂŁ220 plus vat
