If I were you, I'd have it done for $180. But, I would do the prep work myself. You can start sanding around the peeling spots with 1000-grit, then 2000, then 2500 to make those areas as smooth as possible. You could prime it too, if you wanted. For $180, even though it's a friend, I'd hate to think anyone would take shortcuts, but it happens. Better to do your part and prep it right to make sure the finish comes out as good as possible.
Now, if your friend is the right kind of guy, you won't have to do anything, and your bumper will still look flawless. At least extend the offer, and see what he says.
