Type R wing; how to go about fixing.

So i found this nice type r wing for a 5g lude, but it has some major rash on it.
I was wondering what i could do to fix this/make it better in appearance?

Re: Type R wing; how to go about fixing.

some closeups? are the scratches just in the paint? or into the wing itself? that will help us point you in the right direction. Also are you willing to have it repainted or will you just being doing something youself?

Looks to me like very stone chippy. Rub back the paint and bog up any major imperfections would be the cheapest way.

Personally, I would just bring it to a good reputable body shop and have them fix it before re-painting it.

It's too cheap to just ditch.
How much do you think a bodyshop/paint would cost?

Depending on how bad the gouges are which they dont look significantly too bad we would probably charge maybe $100 BUT thats us.

Too bad your not that close by as I used to fix motorcycles (crotch rockets) plastics after someone had layed it down those scratches you have on your wing look alot like the ones I have repaired on bikes. looks like it needs some sanding and some bondo, like mentioned before depends on how far those scratches are in the wing if they are all the way into the fiberglass its going to need some body work.

My guess will be in the neighborhood of $200 - $400. Really depends on where you live.
