Re: Wheel Arch crack/dent

Both these areas can be repaired on a localised (or S.M.A.R.T. basis).

You may have deduced from my signature, that this is my own line of work.

As a guide price, I would be looking to charge 250 for both arches.

So by all means shop around and see what figures you can obtain.

Both arches could benefit from the use of a slide hammer to pull them back into shape, then a skim of filler and sanding to level-off and regain the original contours.

If I can offer any further advice, please ask away.


This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
