For work to be 'good' (exceeding the factory?): Dismantled, de glassed and striped to metal skin, followed by zinc etch, primer, high build and quality two pack (2K) top coatings, about £2000.00. Bare in mind that you will ideally need 4 or 5 litres of top coat (even more if you get them to rub down the 2K top coats with 800 and keep re-coating for a deeper than cellulose reflection) at about £70 a litre plus hardner and thiner, so its not just paying for the labour (lots and lots and lots of that - me man used to just do RR & Astons where he would take a full month on each car!).
My lime green beast just back from this treatment - gorgeous :-)
