bodywork estimate?

I have a 96 Ranger Supercab with a little rust with a hole by the driver side rear.I was wondering what a bodyshop might charge me to fix it(not paint it)?

Re: bodywork estimate?

depends on the cleanup technique they use like soda blast or sand blast....

would have to do front and back and then cut out the cancer and replace with new. or they might just replace with new welding in a piece after cutting off without seeing how far the cancer has spread.could be $500 or so is just my guess...

my 1986 Grand Marquis LS... Rose...

Re: bodywork estimate?

well this is just my opinion.. try yo find some guys that can do it.. instead of taking it to a shop.. i am having a guy that does body wrk on my truck and he is doing it for 200 dollars.. u just have to find somebody who wrked for a body shop that got layed off and has the tools..
