Getting my fender (scratched) and bumper cap (few chips from rocks) repainted, stock color, no body work needed. 658.00 is what they are charging me...am I getting swerved on here? Seems a little expensive but whatever Ive already got my truck there just wondering if it seems about right...

My sister had her driver side door painted and it needed bodywork also, but it was right at 600. It was an 05 Tahoe.

thats not that bad. its alittle high but not that bad. i mean i do it for living.. you have materials, paint, and blending time. btw if the rockchips and your scratch go past the paint it needs bodywork..

Im with Bryan on this one i do it for a living. Does sound slightly hight but i dont know what your hourly rate is in AZ. Up here its $44/hr for sheetmetal and $24/hr for paint. It probably pays like 1.5 hrs to take the fender off then to remove the bumper cap and repair is like 3hrs and then the cost of a new fender and paint.

ur flat rate is only 24/hr for paint?? is that paint or the paint and materials. cause we do 40 sheet metal and 40 paint(i believe) and then 26 paint and materials. also im confused with what u said they were doing my guess would been take bumper off then cap off feather rock chips, feather scratch,bondo if necc, do some primage if necc. and then prep rest way and paint.

thats what ours runs also.
