what do you think the estimate would be at a decent body shop for shaving the side marker holes on mk2 jetta fenders and painting them
TIA

body work would proably be about 2-3 hours. but your gonna get screwed on paint, youll end up blend both fenders and maybe onto the hood. maybe 5-6 hours for paint. i might be over estimating. might be under. so 250-500 id say

Re: mk2 jetta fender shaving.... (NVmyVW)

i was thinking of pulling off the fenders and just taking them to the body shop, fill in the side marker holes and getting it painted some type of nice black...
would it be cheaper that way, by just bring them the fenders?? maybe the hood

are you going to paint the fenders the same color as the car? no it wouldnt really save on expense if you brought them the fenders. its actually kinda easier to do the work with them on the car.

i dont think its easier to do it on the car,if you go there tell them not to blend anything just filler in and paint it enough said and if they do blend tell them your not going to pay the bill i work at a body shop thats how it goes
