Just wondering if anyone knows a good panel beater in Auckland?  Preferably New Lynn area.

 

 

 

I had a small scratch on my car and tried to fix it myself.  Spent hours and now my car looks worse than it was.  Overspray everywhere :(.  Probably needs a whole bumper resprayed, thinking I could do it $250-$300?

 

 

 

The panelbeater near my workplace quoted $250 to repair the tiny spot.  Now that it is much worse he will ask for a fortune.

Usually a good panel beater will respray the whole bumper to fix a small spot as plastic is hard to feather in on, you might be surprised and it may cost the same if not slightly more.

 

I recall a while ago $300 per panel was about right.

Just got it dropped off at a panelbeater. He will only paint the side that is scratched rather than the whole bumper as otherwise he said it will cost alot more.

Managed to get it down to $300 to fix it, hopefully it goes well.. Lesson learned on trying to fix it.
