Re: body work

Depends on the shop. You may find they want to repaint the one panel, then blend the colour down the door and across hood and bumper so you don't notice any imperfections in the colour. (this will be expensive)

Alternatively they may think while we've got the paint off this let's fix up that dent, which will also cost extra.

Most likely though they can probably touch it up relatively quickly, and without needing to respray the entire guard. This will be the cheapest option. However cost will vary depending on a number of things - the colour itself, how much prep work you can do yourself, etc. The best idea will be to drive down to a few body shops and ask.

Re: body work

depends how deep, if its not super deep and they can buff it out, wont be much at all. if they have to sand and respray, youre looking at more. i know my friends shop charges 300 a panel or something like that. and for future reference. fenders are the removable panels in the front, quarters are the welded on ones in the rear

Re: body work

Roughly between 100-300. San it up your self, primer it and take it off the car and take it to the shop and it will be cheapest
