Thanks to all for looking and the advise, I appreciate it guys!!!

I know you've acknowleged already that its a piece of string question, but really the above guide is as narrow as can be given with the info you have given. £1000 on a panel in terms of respray will be dire.
Considering you'll need 4-5 litres of paint, which will cost around £300 if in a decent quality brand, then all other primers, laquer if the van is done in basecoat, etc etc sundries etc, means £400 labour isn't going to get you anything but crap.
£5000 if you are just having it resprayed, i.e no real major bodywork, just extensive show standard prep and paint would get you a show worthy van, but the more extensive bodywork the van needs, the less of a show finish you'll get for your £5k.
Stick a pic up of all the bad areas on the panel, and someone will give you a better idea of price.
