Good old Cal Trans...
It was a 4x4...nothing more...probably took them an hour to reset the new 4x4 in concrete...

You think $2738.68 can cover a new rear quarter panel AND a new paint job...sadly no. I don't have the additional ~3000 for a quality paint job. The quoted price is just for the new panel and pain on the new panel and a blend on the surrounding panels...

Yeah but to get the old panel cut off and the new one removed is still lots of $$$. And on wider rear quarter panels. I already have 11" rims with 315's tucked in there nicely, I don't need to go any wider...

P.S. Nice job on the sig girl replacement! I like.

I'm only paying 500 bucks of it so I'm not worried about the cost.

Quote says that the fender from GM is $911.39 after tax.
It also quotes 37.9 units of labor.

Just tell the body shop to paint the entire car and send the rest of the bill to the insurance company lol.
