Hi there, just wondered how much it cost to spray the hardtop. I have just bought clemos hardtop and I am getting some prices from the sublime to the ridiculous (£100 to £600).

Cost me £500 +VAT to have my hardtop and new rear deck sprayed. The labour involved in the prep is what costs but if you dont do the prep you will not get a good job.

Snap!!

I had the same problem!

Sprayed when bought : £280, not entirely happy : perfect colour match but still had "lumps & bumps" (agree with Nige : Preparation is everything)

Second attempt (locally) £ 180.00 : Much better ; still not perfect!

Answer : No guarantee wherever you have it done : a £600 job could be worse than a £200 job depends on the body shop.
