I have a few too many stone chips on my mondeo than i'd like. i'm looking into getting the front end re-sparyed or touched up. has anyone else done this? how much did it cost? would any1 from Northern Ireland be able to recommend any1 to do this for me from the Co. Armagh/Co. Down areas.

thanks.

I've just had my 54 plate 2.0 tdci ghia bonnet resprayed and it cost 160. They did a brilliant job... it looks great - only problem was they damaged the paintwork on the front bumper in the process and tried to claim they didn't do it.

My advice to anyone having work done on their car is, walk around the car with the person doing the work and tell them any damage/marks or scratches etc on the car, apart from the one's already their, they will be responsible for and will have to repair. If you have a digital camera take photo's of everything if you have to.

Because they wouldn't accept responsibility and I couldn't definitely prove that the scratches weren't there before; I had to pay an extra 100 to get it fixed - consider it an expensive lesson learnt.

Don't bother with those Chipsaway type stone chip painting services as they simply put a little colour into the chip to fool the eye. The stone chip is not eradicated.
