Need some opinions guys

Alright so I've been running around with to auto body shops for estimates on some repairs (see pics). One shop told me $700 for everything (this includes repairing 2 front fenders, and sanding/priming/painting and clear coating the area with lacquer peel). This does not include pic 1 repair which shows signs of lacquer peel.
One shop said $900 to do all of the following, Sanding/priming/painting and clear coating the lacquer peeling area above passenger window, in addition they will do the same for the driver side which shows signs of lacquer peel (pic 1). They would repair both front fender imperfections (i believe by fixing and then doing the paint work). They would follow this by touching up all imperfections of the car (rock chips on hood/minor scratches on car). Followed by a buff and polish.

I learned that my prelude I've had for 8 months had previously been re-painted, thus the lacquer peel im assuming. And that the fender with a crack had been bondo'd thus obviously leading me to believe it has been in a decent wreck. Pretty annoying, the shops said the paint job is pretty well done except for the use of bad clear coat...once again which resulted in my clear coat peeling.

Let me know what you think guys.

Pic 1 - Left top area of back fender which is starting to peel (above driver window)
Pic 2 - Driver side front fender dent
Pic 3 - Driver side front fender dent (diff angle)
Pic 4 - Passenger front fender dent
Pic 5 - Passenger top area of back fender which is peeling badly (above passenger window)

Re: Need some opinions guys

try to find some reviews on the shop and ask to see some of their prior work. if you feel confident in them after that then go for it.

Re: Need some opinions guys

I have found reviews on them and all of them have been positive. They seem like an extremely legitimate place. They were very understanding and seem like they will be great to work with. I think I will start saving up for this to be done. Hopefully when its done my car will look practically brand new. After this is done I'll start doing some mods to get my car as bad ass as your guy's. 1Badbb6 your prelude is probably my favorite I've ever seen, so maybe i'll aim for that =).
