Buying and Selling Question from paul wetherhill
Submitted on 02/09/2010
I have my eye on a car to buy with scratch damage on the rear quarter. I live in Plymouth, and was wondering if there would be anything you could do from the pictures uploaded, and if you have a centre nearby? Thanks, i appreciate you cant always tell before seeing it in person. The decals would obvioulsy be removed, so i presume the scratches go the length of the rear quarter. Paul. Model: MG ZR 2003
We are in Chelmsford but I maybe able to help.
If the panels can be just buffed/paintcorrection , then heres the page that gives you some prices for that. However I suspect they will need to be resprayed at a good body shop. Also the stickers will need to be replaced. This could prove costly as a silver car will need to be blended into the next panel that doesn't have any damage.
If your going to buy this car, you need to get good look at that damage as it could be, best ways maybe a hunderd pounds to do, using paint correction, or at worst ways maybe a thousand pounds to have it done proberley at a body shop.
