I don't even want to think what a new fender flare would cost. Dealer pricing on parts is absurd. The bumper took a minor hit. The majority is on the flare.
She already scratched my front passenger winter rim a month after I had them installed. At our last house she would regularly drive over the sprinkler head on the corner of the lawn. She turns too tight at corners as well. Itís like she doesnít realize how close she is to the curb. Iíll be with her when she makes a right hand turn at an intersection and Iíll just be waiting for the crunching scraping sound sheís that close. I love her but when it comes to cars she treats them like theyíre just a way to get around. I guess guys are just more attentive. If chicks spent as much time and attention on their car as they do on their face it would look spectacular.
I went to a Chrysler body shop today. Same type of repair, remove the trim and fill and sand etc. Heíd paint the entire rear bumper as well. He claimed the dent and chip places are more for minor door dings etc. Iím at 1K now. So $350 higher.
I have one more place to check out for a quote.
