    Body repair question

    I screwed up.

    Was practising reversing around the side of the house and when I was turning in I didn't keep an eye on the front end and it ran into a pebble dashed wall.

    Front left corner is pretty deeply scratched but the lights are ok. Black bumper and bottom of the blue body is scratched. Its a blue 97 corsa.

    The question is how much it is going to cost to get fixed? Is it possible for the parts to be repaired? (ie like filed, smoothed and resprayed) or are the parts going to have to be replaced?

    Break it to me gently

    scrapyard. try to find a car of the same colour and a new wing will only cost you £40ish

    another option would be to try and fix it yourself with a little filler, primer and paint. halfords is yer place for that

    Thought it would be like £200 plus. Will probably take it to a few repair / body shops to see what sorta price they would give me.
