...two new wings on my W210. Is this reasonable? I will fit and underseal the wings myself.

...including ferry and diesel? :p

£200 would sound about right though. this was a backstreet operation, which is why I asked!!

Might be worth shopping around, i just had a quote of £400.00 to cut out the rust on both rear wheel arches (one small patch on each side), fabricate and weld in new metal, prime and respray all the way up to the roof edge.

Painting new panels is a piece of pi55 so £350 seems a bit steep.

Agreed, all prep done by me, including bumper off. The paint isn't dear...trying to get the arm in. I was wearing a suit when I asked!

If the job is to be done properly then £350 is a very fair price.

In expensive Jersey, I am used to paying £150 a panel (wing/door) and more for bonnet. So depends on how good work is, then maybe I would expect to pay that for good quality.

The bodyshop that did mine would do it for £250.

In the photo your car look like Onyx grey, are you sure you dont want to have the bonnet and doors blended in?

I would rather pay £350 once and have a proper job than £200 and have to have it done again in the not to distant future.

Best if you can to go on recomendaions on here if anyone is local to you.

Is it even worth trying yourself? or will that end in tears :)
