    That sounds far too cheap to be a decent job to me mate.
    Think of the work involved, cut away the old arch, weld and fit the new one, all the prep, cost of paint and lacquer, labour charges, VAT on top of it all......

    I paid 400 for a new arch and a bit of work on the sill, theres pics in my album

    ^ pre and post workout would be great!

    Be interested, some say too cheap, I disagree really depends how well you know the garage and the amount of work involved and what they have available in the shop.

    So long as its a good clean job then that's a very good price I once knew a guy who did my awesome body repairs (17 and prone to dings!) and he saved me literally thousands - I then dated his daughter and since then things haven't been the same!

    I know John Galley as i have dealt with him for years.He is very helpful in all respects,has given me advice on how to repair or test things many times,which has saved me money with not having to take it to him.Any work he does on your car is done at a high standard.He puts every effort into doing a job and solving problems.My car will always be taken to John as he is 100% trustworthy.My two sons also take their cars to him.John charges a fair price for the work he does.
