Re: Pricing advice/help

Since its "my car",Id be ..upset if I got that much damage on mine.For the cost region that Paul mentions and with my ins excess, Id get my local one man operation to do it.
He is/has been pretty good so far on this car and my last.

A bit more good news? I had a single one point ding, about the size of a penny in that area that I fixed myself.
Although it isnt obvious in the pics all of that area is covered with a thick anti chip coating ,then painted over.

Im not saying yours is DIY!, but at least most of the scratching/gouges you see is cuts thro the protective layer.
Its kind of a grey white rubbery coating.Hopefully not that much is down to bare metal , so that should ease the repair/prep process and reduce the likelihood of rust appearing there later.
Currently in coup's garage:
RM III coupe 1.5dci FVT,Audi TT Mk1 ,a bike and too much rubbish.
