I’m going to a body shop to get an estimate on the collision damage this morning. The only cost should be labor and paint materials, I have the sheet metal and trim required to fix everything.
Estimate includes: Fix rust on the door, blend door. Blend/reclear hood. R&R fender/extension/headlight/grill (I have them). Total quoted cost: $2500-3000, so say $3k to be safe. Estimate for a complete body restoration/respray: $15k. I think I’ve decided to like the car’s current color.
