Paint prices....
 
Ok so I've gotten two quotes on getting the liftgate fixed....

(for those that didn't see or don't remember)

And apparently paint and everything will be involved but the "discounted" quote I got from one place was $465 and the other was "at least" $500. The latter guy said it was because it's an expensive color.... anyone know how true that statement is?

Whole lift gate is about 1000-1200. Honestly... WHAT paint work has to be done? I only see a dent which can get pushed out by a good body worker.

Yea thats what I was told by both places. I pulled the interior trim off b/c I was gonna just say F it and do it myself but being that it's on the edge like that it's not really an easy spot to just pop out. I'll try to get a pic tomorrow, though I'm workin doubles sat and sun so it'll prob be monday, but its right near the frame of the liftgate making it hard to get to.
