O/S/R panel repair

Postby fordanth » Fri Apr 16, 2021 7:43 pm

Hi Everyone

I am wanting to get peoples opinion on the two quotations I got to repair my van so I can get a consensus of which would be the best option of repair. I stupidly veered off-road reversing onsite today being followed by a digger in front and not looking enough in my mirrors hit a concrete bollard.

Quote 1: A full panel respray and repair of damage for £250
or
Quote 2: Part panel respray and make good of the damage - £100

To be brutally honest with you, it depends on how much you care about your van mate. That's just my honest opinion. Personally, I would want it back to the way it was as far as possible - if it is your own van of course :wink:

both sound too cheap, the paint alone would be £70 quid have it repaired and blended into surrounding panels or you will never be happy with the result
