If you've had two quotes at £800 then that must be right. I guess it depends if you want a good job made of it or a crap one, which will probably mean getting it done again in a year or two.

I'm gutted because now the wing has returned to it's correct shape all there is now is a thin crack so £800 hurts. I'm almost tempted to do it myself providing is can get a few cans of spray paint with the correct colour.

Unless you've done it before don't even bother, you will make a mess of it!

 

Have you told them the wing no longer needs aligning and it's just the split that needs to be fixed?

If it's popped back into place and now it's just that crack then why not try another smart repair company ?

Or put a post out to see if it can be fixed in exchange for your geometry expertise?

Well I'd leave the paint for now and just get somebody to fix ( stick ) the crack.
