Hey guys,
I want to colour code my bumpers, wheel arches and door handles. Was wondering roughly how much this would cost me?
Has anyone had this done and could tell me how much it cost and where they got it done?
Thanks :)

I'd say 80-£100 if you do yourself, as you need quite few can of each for each of your bumpers alone,

I say for bumpers alone you need (going by halfords prices)

3 x primer - £21
4 x paint - £22
2/3 x Laquer 14/21

Thats without other bits and problems if you do yourself, with them bits IMO easier to go to a bodyshop, and better finish, arches and mirrors could probably do for £20 - £30

How much do you reckon it would be at a body shop? A lot? I'd want the bumpers, wheel arches and door handles done.
Thanks.
I paid £200 for front and rear bumpers and a set of four arches :)

Anything from 90 quid to 300 quid for a proper colour coding.
I was quoted 80, but he quoted that he wont be sanding any of the plastics.
make sure you see their work before hand and make sure they know what they are doing.
