Post Replacement of rear arches

Can anyone give me a price that I can expect to pay to replace the two rear arches on a new age wrx? I've seen a car that I'm thinking of buying but it needs both the arches doing.

between 400-500 quid a side for a proper job with paint. i had my passenger side arch cut out and new metal welded in and painted etc for 400 quid and the guy who did it reckoned he undercut himself on the job.

mine cost 600 to cut out and fit replacement arches and 140 for the arches but it’s hard to find a bloke to do a good job
so budget on a. Grand

also you might need the sills or part of them might need replaced to and also the tops of the turrets which could get very expensive

its hard to to give an exact price until the cutting and examinations start underneath

The next stage is replace components underneath subframe ,fuel pipe handbrake assembly arb bushes wishbones so budget on more then the cars worth
that’s very expensive
