s1600 rally front spraying cost?

How much would you expect to pay to get a S1600 rally front resprayed it was originally blue and had alot of stone chips. I just paid 130 to get it sprayed thats not fitted just sprayed, and for that I was expecting the pits to be filled in where the stone chips were, how ever its come back dull as hell he says it needs polishing and it has loads of pits doesnt look like its been smoothed at all. To behonest I feel I could have done a better job borrowing my Girlfriends red nail varnish and painting it with that! Im gutted I was hoping to fit the front in time for a show tomorrow but with it looking so crap thats not happening now .

Anyway a few people said I should be expecting to pay 300 to get it sprayed and to the standard im looking for, is this about right and was I expecting too much for 130?

I had my whole car resprayed at the same time as my original bumper was fitted at a total cost of 1000, 250 of which was for making the bumper fit properly - 300 is probably about right for a good job.

TJ was this a rally front or a standard ZR front? Im not wanting my rally front fitted Just sprayed. Funnly enough I got a quote for the full car to be resprayed as well and it was 12,00 but the guy who sprayed my Rally front said 800 for the whole car. I guess you get what you pay for! I just thought 300 was a bit steep for spraying the rally front and smoothing the stone chips out it with out fitting

Rally bumper mate. 150 is a good price for spraying alone, but when chips need filling, etc....
