yeah i did work experience at a panel beaters for 2 weeks, was sh*t as lol, but i did learn a bit. you've done well for your first attempt thats for sure. did you already have a compressor and gun, or did you have to buy them for that job. what about paint? how much did you spend on it? i've always wanted to attempt it but meh, cbf, but i am sort of considering it as a future possibility (not anytime soon though).

i got the basics of body prepping, but if i screw up, and it looks crap, who cares.... its only a cheap car

cheers,
VB

700 sounds pretty good to me.
I'd like to do this myself aswell but I don't have any indoor/garage space.

I'd probably give it to a panel beater if they can do it for around 1000-1300
