I have a '98 Jaguar XK8 (Mrs C's preferred car).

Whilst the car is mechanically sound it is tired. The car is going into a Jag specialist next week for some work - seat motor/module, windows motor/regulators, air con howl, centre console lights, rear view mirror! Once that is all sorted out there are three further tasks to undertake.

One, the seats need refurbishing.
Two, the wheels need refurbishing.
Three, the bodywork is tired, scuffs and scrapes and other than the wheel arches which are rusting the remainder of the bodywork is sound. I imagine it will be cut out the arches and weld in repair panels and then a full respray and at the same time under body treatment. Can anyone give me a guide as to the likely price for this work???

its more a case of what you want to pay.. you could get estimates ranging from 1-5k but depends on quality of work and finish you seek

i would not want to spend less than 3-4k retail on what you describe or likely around 2k trade price to achieve a reasonable finish

call around your local bodyshops but focus on those specialising in resto rather than accident repair work

Thanks for this - I had in my mind somewhere in the region of 4.5k, so it looks like I am in the right ball park. Just so I know what to expect!
