Rust repair estimate

126 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

As for the weather, it's currently quite nice right now.

It reached like 50f today. We've got like 6-8 inches of snow on the ground.

We need some rain to wash all the salt and junk of the road.

As for welding, youtube has helped alot. It doesn't really seem SUPER difficult, just rather and the fact that you certainly won't want to screw up.

Plus I'd need a welder and all that equipment, and also an enclosed space to work on the car.

Update:

This is not related to the repair in question, but a different one.

The car is almost done, and I've started to get some pictures of it.

They've taken care of other cosmetic issues as well. 

They redid my back bumper and they sent me a few pictures yesterday. 

This is before

Must say, that is very impressive.

Looks like a professional but expensive job.

I had gotten the impression that they were just going to address the exact rust spots.

It looks like they redid the whole rear. It's a gorgeous finish.

Are you satisfied with the work job? Cause that's all that matters!

Yeah I was just expecting the rust spots. I told them they can do whatever they want on the car though.

Yeah looks like they repainted the entire back end, it sure does look really good. 

I'll have to ask what they're going to charge me again, but when I dropped it off they said around 350 for labor. They also stated multiple times that most of the price of the job would be the materials, so let's hope I'm not charged too much.

As for being satisfied, heck yeah I am! Looks like a new car. I'll have to wait and see the other spots.  

Once I get the car back, I'll have to take before and after pictures of everything to show what they did. 

This definitely wouldn't be worth it at a normal shop, but for cheap, why not.

Only thing that sucks is having to wait so long. I'm probably going to get it back the weekend of the 21st.

Glad to hear that your satisfied.

But yeah. That's a heck of a long time to wait.

They must be pretty busy working on other cars as well.
