once i have the engine sorted etc i want to obviously work towards the bodywork being done... the main area is the door and wing... so i get them replaced, sprayed up and the rest mopped... any idea on price? aslong as the colour match was sweet then id be happy, and the mop would also help that correct?

£100 for a basic one with a few pads I think.

Look on some cleaning websites like cleamitts and cleanyourcar and the other one thats on this forum somewhere I forgot the name..

Oh right, well they will do that anyway included with the price of the respray stuff. I wouldnt expect a bodyshop to spray something then charge extra to make it look good.

You have to be so careful with a mop as it can burn through the paint if you have no idea what you're doing. So I would say get the pro to do it lol, as getting all the right gear including polishes etc would cost exactly the same amount as getting a full detail done

I can pretty much assure you that if you get a body repair shop to do it, your car will come out with large amounts marring. Get it done properly if i was you!
