Paint question

So, my paint on my front bumper started peeling a month ago. It rippled up, then a piece finally broke off. And it's still the same. The bumper wasn't painted correctly, it was never primed at all apparently. What's a reasonable price for repainting the whole bumper? I've been hit with $700 and thought that was way too high. Helps appreciated

I'd say 350-450.. 700 is ridiculous did MAACO quote you that by chance?

Yeah see even 350-450 sounds better. 700 was like a slap in the face and nope, just a paint shop in my city. Granted everything they do has a lifetime warranty, I still didn't feel 700 was fair

Just because its lifetime doesn't mean it will stick or you won't have problems. I have a friend with an 04 Mach 1. Has had his hood painted twice. It was lifetime guaranteed. Just keep lookin. Somebody will paint it cheaper and lifetime guarantee it. The 3-4 hundred sounds pretty close. Maybe more, maybe less. Not by much at all though.

Well you'll prolly have to pay a little more for paint bc I have silver which is cheap, black is exspensive. But 700 is WILD. Definetly take your business somewhere else

$700 is way too high. Like the others said look elsewhere and find a better price.
