    The previous owner of my car had a full respray done.......

    then a few weeks later decided to wash the car with his works industrial power water jet thingy and promptly took all the laquer off the boot lid. nice one!

    anyone got any idea how much a simple boot lid respray is gonna set me back?

    I'd be a little more concerned that the laquer has stripped right of, although the PW is probably fairly powerful it shouldn't have caused this unless it was on a pencil jet at about an inch away from the surface or the re-spray had been to a poor standard.

    Price wise it would be best to shop around for a quote.

    300 quid sounds a bit strong,although a professional sprayer may charge that.
    2 options:either shop around,i reckon you will get it done for around 100 quid,or buy a matching coloured one from a scrappy?
    I has the skillz to pay the billz innit.

    He told you it was a few weeks later? If you don't allow laquer at least two weeks to cure it will come off with the likes of a power washer. You might get away with rubbing it down yourself and putting another layer of colour on and then clear laquer. Would you consider doing it yourself? would cost you buttons... Its really easy too, you just have to take your time and no shortcuts.

    Would be slightly cheaper but you got to remember if hes not got the equipment theres no point if you want profesh finish he will need gun (i prefure gravity pull) air compress cant remember what type of pressure has been since 2006-2007 when i last resprayed then buying the paint,primer,will need knowledge of ratio of paint to laquer then will need knowledge of how to spray (one mess up with the paint and laquer and have to scrap it all and do it again. so it can be cheaper if he has the knowledge.. (not trying to be an ass just trying to make sure the fella don't waste his money)

    I see what your saying, I know you would get away with doing the boot yourself though and you can make a good job with cans! Seriously, its all in the prep, I have just about finished the car door on my E39 and its looking good, not to be big headed. All you need is a dry and dust free work place, lots of masking tape and grease proof paper from Tescos, wet and dry and the right tins... easy..
