I don't see how you could get it any cheaper. It is a good thing you know someone in the business to save you some money. Just be sure to say thanks.

That is cheap. My husband only hooks up people he knows with those kind of prices. It's great deal.

I got a great deal on my front bumper being repainted about a month ago for $400 cash by a local guy that was recommended to me. He did a real good job filling in all the little pits and divots. There were some he couldn't quite fill all the way because I only let him have the car for 3 days. He said with another day it would have been even better but I am satisfied with how it turned out.
I just noticed about 2 weeks ago that the left side has sanding marks showing through and there is a bubble (dime size) in the grille area. I took it to him to talk to him about it and he's fixing it for free. He's going to buff the left side and repaint the grille area for free. ;)
My advice to anyone looking into having paint work done is to ask around at local performance shops for recommendations. If any of them own nice cars and have had body/paint work done, they probably know someone that does excellent work. That's how I found my guy.
