    Unhappy 94 Corolla body work and paint job

    Hello friends,

    long time lurker here at Pakwheels, my first post. I plan to get full body paint on my 94 corolla. I visited this workshop, Federal Auto, in I9 Islamabad that is quoting 70k as the cost for below:

    -full body work to fix any dents
    -full body bake paint metallic grey
    -new bumpers, putting in automatic door covers, new carpet etc (I'll buy and provide the components)

    They are offering warranty on paint job that I will not have any complaints and any issues will be addressed free of additional charge. Also, I would be given a date on which to pick my car, no hassles and my constant presence won't be required.

    I don't have any experience in this regard and wanted your input on whether 70k is a workable deal - I had an initial budge tof 40-50k in mind. Also, if you guys can recommend good workshops that will do a satisfactory job on denting and painting, plz feel free to recommend.

    thanks for the help in advance.

    I m in khi and i do have also 97 corolla recently i had paint job on full body only outer side, painter charge me about 40 k and he did good job. If you are asking for full body inside and outside plus under hood and rear boot area means full body with all parts dis mental and after paint installation than the price 70 k o think is good price.
    In i9 there is vebra also but they expensive pls have a quote from them also so you may better choice the good and cheap one.

    i have a 94 xe as well

    dont u think this gray and the jhanda green are the worst colors they ever made
    why dont you get it painted gun metallic just a suggestion

    i would rather get my car done from my local denter and painter.....(for the final paint phase rent a paint booth)

    ofcourse if u have money and no time for workshops they are turn key workshops like auto club etc
