If you want it done properly i.e all the original paint removed, everything striped off and resprayed you're lookin at about £3k - that was the quote I had when I took my car in for a de-rusting/underseal last month.

The chap said a lot of places just paint over the existing paint which eventually fades or starts to flake off. Dont know how much truth to that, he might of just wanted more money from me :D

Another way around this which I heard at the weekend, was to disconnect the ancillaries and wrap up the engine - then spray.
