Question How much do you figure this would cost?

I'm gonna go out and get some quotes (Bodylines will be my first stop; should've went there with the other car but he was too busy and I was impatient).

Basically I've gotta fix maybe 3-5 little surface rust spots coming up, pull out 3 tiny door dents and buff out a swipe on the door. Also, rear passenger's was jacked incorrectly and the rocker is a little dented. I want quality work, I don't want to see it's been repainted in said spots.

How much do you figure this should cost for a quality job?

it depends on the extent of the "damage" If the rust is all the way through, then you have to cut it out.

Try Autopia, they did work on my car, came out great. and good prices too.

Nah, just surface rust. Just kind of wanted a ballpark range for what I described so I know if bodyshops' quotes are reasonable.

the best way to know is to go to multiple body shops and as for quotes, that will give you your best range.

you can't just paint spots if you dont want to see the fix, you gotta repaint the whole panel.

Had my car done by them and .... not a bad job for the money , however a word .... if you have any modifications like Hid lights and the such they don't know what their doing , I went to pickup my car last Fri and no lights , no mains and only one fog was working, they claimed they did not touch anything but it was very obvious that they had ! When the owner came by he said that he hates to work on modified cars like this and to call the person that wired my lights up and was upset that his man was spending tyme on my car. Now I'm without lights its 5:00pm and I place a call to Ivan who was just about to leave but said come down and Ill have a look , when I arrived he found that indeed someone had played around with the lights also some damage was done to one of the fogs , re routing the main connectors to the ballast from the fogs got me the main lights back , no idea why they messed with the lights , I can only say they have no knowledge nor the expertise in dealing in these matters. Thanks to Ivan for getting me out of a bind. Just a heads up on this guy.

Interesting. You talking about BodyLines? What work did you have done to your car? Bumper?

How much do you figure this should cost for a quality job?

Cant really tell you how much it will cost for rust repair, you would have to bring your car in so that I could take a look at it and give you an estimate.

If you wish, pm me.
