Chch Panel beaters for restoration recommendations?

Postby sopachrga » Mon Jan 15, 2018 12:07 pm

Hey All.

I've got an '84 AW11 MR2 which I'm restoring. It has a little rust a few dents and needs a full respray.

Has anyone in Chch got any experience with getting restoration work done and can recommend (or warn against) a local panel beater?

Thanks

Hmm, that may be overkill.

Price-wise, I'm expecting to spend between $3k-$5k. Does that sound about right?

Depends how rustfucked it is. 5k might do it?

Not too bad with rust luckily.
I’ll go get a few estimates this week and let you know what they say.
