Small Dents in Rear Quarter Panel and Rear Door Panel Sign In

I got an estimate to repair the dents shown below. It seemed a bit high so I wanted to see what you guys think.
Edit: Vehicle is 2001 Honda Accord.
Edit: Sorry, about the image size before.

Your pictures are so wide
it's impossible
to read.


Saw some
and is expensive
for paint and a fix.
What was your quote to fix that?

(BTW - pics will have to go
or this thread is unusable.
The other thing is "small"
dents still
require expensive prep,
stages of paint in
order so time and expense
of materials still up there)

Can only be IMO that's about what I'd expect if YOU didn't insist on all new parts. Not knowing what this vehicle is doesn't help and still needs the in person inspection. I question how hard the wheel lip molding will be to fix or replace such that the air gap is back to normal?


Hammer Time can tell you how expensive just plain products and paints are if you have a quote in writing you see that now,

That hourly rate is pretty high for body work. Most are in the $50-$60 range. Mechanical hourly rates are much higher.

As Tom inferred, the cost of quality paint can be outrageous. My shop used Dupont products and it was not unusual for paint materials to cost a couple hundred dollars just to paint a bumper, even with the shop mixing their own colors.

Also, that door has to come off and be completely stripped of internal parts to be repaired.
