I have only seen two people to do this. Pics Bellow. Anyone else do it? I am getting quotes around $300 to prep, fill, and paint. Sound high? Thoughts? I know I can just get a CF and get it painted, but in the long run thats a long more effort and time.

sounds about right, filling indents can be a bitch, and so can blending paint.

I wanted to get mine done but I figured for $300 I'm better off saving up a few hundred more and buying a CF one.

$300 is not a bad price for fill & paint, but if you are going to get CF deck lid anywho I would just wait & get one that is shaved like the Seibon & paint it to match. Since I don't pay for paint/body work, I plan on doing both. I will have my bodyshop fill & paint mine for now, but later down the road picking up a CF deck lid & having it painted to match.

i would just pay the 300. if u save a bit more for the trunk, u still have to paint it. it will come out to a bit more than 2X the price.

But then the argument could be...$300 now...and have it turn out to be a bad paint job too. :dunno:

I'm on the wagon for the CF trunk!

Depending on what they're filling it with you may have shrinkage problems in the long run. When the fill shrinks you'll see the circle reappear. Annoying if you're a perfectionist. Is the shop going to guarantee their work for more than 2 years?

You could fill with fiberglass, then go over with Bondo for finishing to fill pits, that way it won't "sink" so easily.

you don't want them to use any kind of filler to fill in the hole... you want them to tack weld in sheet metal and smooth it so you get a consistent finish... here is an example:

might pay more.. but the result will be better.
