Recently wifey got into a little parking accident and scrapped a rear passenger door against a pillar. Two mass stretch of lines and the door got indented like an mini inverted wok. Only 1 single door was affected.

 

Guess will need some panel beating and re-spray of the affected door. Anyone any recommendations where to do repairs? Got quoted $380 from a workshop recommended by a friend. Is it considered reasonable?

Answering my own question in case anyone looking for answers here.

There's a workshop in Ubi area called Hoe Meng Spray Painting Service. Workers and boss are nice, quoted me half the price as compared to my friend's recommended workshop, and completed the repair in just one day.

Even opened late till 7.30pm to wait for me to collect my car.

Need to wait for a few months to really test out the paint quality, but the panel beating and service is good. Recommend you guys to give it a go if ever need any repair services or painting job.

paint quality and clear coat used can make a huge difference. you can always tell of short cut jobs a few months down the line. but cheap lor. for paint, prep is the most important and you really need time to do it right.

More than a year old thread but comes in handy.

 

My side mirror hit the corner of a van while reverse parking today. Not a very serious dent. Still, I owe the van driver to do good as the van belongs to his employer. Will look up for Hoe Meng on Tuesday

I did not look up for Hoe Meng. Instead, I relied on the reviews at sgcarmart. I located one with lots of praises but in the end got slaughtered $150 for the job. I was quoted $50 when I went to the workshop getting a quote upfront by showing the photos that I took of the van.

Have not come across $50 spray job, as spot spray will have unevenness so normally by panel that cost $150 to $200.

Nowadays, $150 for spray painting job is reasonable, IMO. Anything less is the ws try to entice you and anyhow quote low low.

 

BTW, I'm not a ws owner or anything like that, but I'm willing to pay $150 for a good spray painting job.

 

I'm also looking for a ws for re-spray my re-newed COE car. Also OC got the scratch right side at the rear door above the wheel.

and i'm working at a ws, and paint dun come cheap, especially ws using sikkens brand of paint. But the quality of paintwork is really top notch i must say. Nothing comes cheap and good, you have to sacrifice one.

Waut a few days and check if bubbles surfaced? My did becos of the time it take to get it done. Standard downtime shld be at least 3 to 5 days for proper drying and coating. But that certaining will cost more.

Bonnet respray in a day can be done. Unless you need big panel beating work to be done.
