Ok, I'm starting to look for a painter, etc, and my parents suggested checking with the people who fixed my sisters Eclipse when she wrecked it, so..I did.
I went by, and they were pretty cool, but I've got NO idea what stuff like this should cost. They offer a lifetime warranty on their work, which is good, so here's what I was told...

I've got a dent on my front fender (decent sized one), and two smaller indentations. To pull those and "make new", shave the antenna on the opposite fender, shave the logo on the grill shell, install, align and prep new bumper and hood, then paint it all and fade it in is $1,600.
The whole front clip would be painted (both fenders, hood,bumper), and he said he'd knock $200 off if I did it all at once (total was actually just a tad over 1800, then the 200 off got me to the 1600).

Does that sound reasonable?

I'm still undecided if I want a new hood and whether or not I should shave the antenna and grill shell, but I'm definately gonna get a new bumper cover, and have the one fender fixed, so I figured I'd look into getting the rest done. I'm gonna check some other shops around here, just figured I'd get your opinions on the matter, as many of you have had some sort of body work done.

Oh yeah, they also said they'd buy the factory hood and bumper from me, so that would knock some more off, but how much we didnt discuss.

If I were you, I would get a couple other estimates and compare. Just don't tell the other guys what the first estimate was. Also, if your going to replace the hood, get the srt 10 hood, I don't think they are that much more.

The hood doesnt need to be replaced, I just figured since I was getting the other stuff done I might just go ahead and do it...still deciding on the look i'm goin for though.
