Right i want a badboy bonnet on my corsa b. the pic below is how i want it. where it slopes further down over the grill slightly aswell as over the lights. Firstly which wud b cheapest?

1. Buy a bonnet ready made (with P&P) - How much wud one cost and where from. Then getting my body garage to fit and spray it.

2. Get my body garage to weld my current bonnet like that and spray it? How much wud a garage do that for u rekon?



Heres my car at the mo but if u look at my grill it for some reason sticks out quite a bit and it wont go further back. does that mean i wont b able to get the front of the bonnet to extend over it or can a body garage modify it for me? cheers

With regards to your grill I reckon a good bodyshop would be able to think of a way around it.
Bonnet wise it's best to have a good search on ebay, and also get a quote at a local bodyshop and compare the two.

They will cut the required pieces, tack them on with weld, then weld all along, then grind down smooth, then fill any imperfections, then prime, then spray.

Nope if ebay doesn't then like you say it's probably best getting it done by a bodyshop.
