Good old IAB / Typhoon paint

Hi there, I'm fairly new to this forum as I've only owned a ZR for about a month which in that time has managed to cause me much joy but also much upset... the most recent and urgent problem is good old IAB TYPHOON paint / damage.

I left my ZR in the unit at work whilst I was on holiday thinking it would be safest left there only to be proved wrong as I came back to a huge gash across the door and rear passenger side. The person who did it left me a note on the windscreen saying terribly sorry we will talk about this when I next see you, I haven't seen them yet and won't see them till early next week. My question is how much is this realisticly likely to cost? I've heard the paint is not cheap but that's still quite a broad spectrum.

I'll try and get a few pictures up today.

Typhoon certainly isn't cheap, but neither is it eyewateringly expensive compared with some of the other Monogram colours which can be in excess of 1500 a litre.

The last time I heard of someone wanting some Typhoon, I think they were quoted from around 200 to 300 for a half litre minimum order quantity (which i think would be more than enough to do the whole side of the car).

I managed to get the front half of my bumper, and fog light surrounds (Mk2) and all dents removed for 280 in Sunspot Yellow (IAC.)

When I asked about matching he said the difficult part wasn't matching the paint, it was applying it.

You should be alright...

Below is a before and after - not a fantastic first picture to show the scrape (never took any pictures because I didn't want any) but you do get the idea. Images go to an external site because you'll get the maximum size and quality - didn't want to share an image wider than the website.

That looks amazing! Who did you use to do that? I'm in the northwest.

It was taken to a specialist in my neck of the woods down in Lincolnshire - might be a bit far for you to get to.

I'm sure if it can be done to mine it can be done to yours!
