I think it was a fine price for the results (again I have no doubts a good indy could probably do it for less) I think its still a pretty good price especially since my dealer I bought the car from said no loaners for body work.

WOW that's a rip. For well under $700 one can get a perfect complete repaint of the front bumper.

That's good, as long as its not noticeable whatsoever I wouldn't worry about it. Glad to hear everything turned out okay.
