I don't know, I'm just a little weary of these 2-300 prices.... I've been through plenty of body shop experiences, and I know what is involved in the job. I've never had a body panel painted or even resprayed for 2-300 bucks.
It's not just painting a piece and slapping it on the car. You've got paint the part separately, and then after assembly they sand down and smooth out the adjacent panels, then respray and blend the colors so they match.
No matter what kind of gismodery the shop says they use (some talk about the use of "special" camera), the paint color will never match the factory job that has faded, and even the texture will be different if it is perfect. Too many variables are involved like paint quality, color, spray gun, texture, shop air pressure, and temperature (to name a few). It'll even take a day or two to fully cure after drying before you'll know 100% that it matches after blending. Normally, your eyes are merely fooled into seeing the same color as long as it is close. A good shop will make this seamless.
I'm not calling anybody a liar here.... I'm just weary of what I think may not quite be the best job you would want done. There's more than one way to paint a car, and if you tell a shop you're price conscious, they'll do the best they can to match. That means they'll use different methods to save them time and supplies so that they can save you money.
As an example of a few times for work that would qualify as similar:
1. Shop in Charlotte, NC 2017: Rear Bumper Cover Replacement from recent rear ending: $600 tied up in paint supplies and labor (Full estimate $1,773 with OEM bumper replacement)
2. Shop in Concord, NC 2010: Rear Bumper Cover Respray from unseen accident (scraped paint - Elected not to do): ~$350-400 quoted paint supplies and labor ($468 with tax)
2. Shop in Concord, NC 2007: Rear Bumper Cover Respray after minor accident (G6): ~350-400 tied up in paint supplies and labor (6-700 total since I don't remember the additional charges)
That's a comp that I go by. You've always gotta pay sales and waste taxes and any disposal fees if applicable. So that $2-300 paint job is actually $175-215.
For a whole bumper cover that's priced low to me. I would be asking them to explain the whole process of what they'll be doing. If they say something about assembling, masking, and then painting, I'd walk away...... I've yet to walk into a body shop that quotes me 2-300 dollars to paint a full panel from either plastic, or metal, or primed.
They charge by the hour and by supplies. A full spray costs more than a re-spray, and it is a lot more time consuming and frankly more difficult than a respray for repairs.
Anyways, that's just my .02
