Need Advice on Bodywork!!!!

Post by sephiroth09 » Mon Jul 08, 2013 12:32 pm

Hi a few month back I bought a polo 9n gt for cheap that needed some work done(CAT D damage on the passenger wing as pic shows).now is time for me to start with the bodywork.In recent days I started to see some rust spot near my damaged wings but the thing that worry me the most is that the rust is not only in the wing(passenger side) pics will explain better then words :shock: , how much will it be to fix ?. I also recently bought a set of votex side skirt and the votex rear bumber kit any one know how much will be be to spray and fit them 8) ?(the votex kit are not painted).I also have some deep scuff on the rear quater panel(both side) the paint is not scratched but for this ill take the pics next time as is too sunny(bright) for my camera to be able to see the damaged part) I expect it too be quite expensive if i have to replace the rear quater panels as i think they are welded to the roof.. :( .

Your likely to need a new front wing

as for sorting the paintwork and remaining rust, I would speak to a body shop as it's quite involved and will take alot of work to get it right.

just a small update,got a quote from a VW approved garage the price was more then 1300 pound just for the wing and rust spot(include blending of the door) then i called my mechanic(vw specialist) and he recommend me a body shop that he uses and he quote me 500 this include side skirt and rear vortex valance paint and fitting he will also blend the door but he wont replace the wing he think it can be fix. Im kind of worried about the outcome i hope everything will be good.Ill post pic when everything is done.
