First of all, I don't have any pictures of the seemingly countless rust-spots on the car, but I'll try and get some later to show.
Most of them are relatively small, so not hugely problematic, but big enough to notice when looking at the car.
The car's also got some pretty weird stuff going on in the bonnet region, which looks like someone held a naked flame against it - Laquer peeled the set in a sort-of brown colour.
There's also two or three small dents which I've noticed recently - hard to spot, but now I know they're there it's impossible not to!
Generally, I'm looking to take it to a body-shop to get them to sort it all out for me. I don't know what it would entail, though - so I'm asking some advice so I get ripped off as little as possible.
Fortunately, a Muay Thai friend is a body sprayer and has told me a couple of tips which will help me save a few hundred at the garage he works for. I can't remember what it is he told me, and he's also Portuguese - his English is not so good at the best of times!!
However, he did offer to do it at my own home as long as I have the right equipment?
Can anyone enlighten me as to what equipment I would need for him to do a good job?
If I take it to a reputable body shop, how much would I really be looking at if I left everything down to their caring hands??
Here's the pictures:
