Well, I had them shave off my 5.0 badges. One fender was damaged so insurance paid to replace it. I had them get a V6 fender. But the other fender was not damaged so I said I'd pay the difference to have the badge shaved off. they are charging me $499.00 to shave one badge off. It sounds like a rip off. I'm going to get a couple of estimates from some other body shops to see how much the average would be. Then I'll take it to them and see if he'll come down on the price.

Yeah that does sound ridiculous you'll get it cheaper somewhere else

That was my argument. I told him why would I pay $500 to have this done when I could just replace the fender and have it painted for less. The problem is, I assumed it would cost around $200 because that's the high side of what other shops would charge. So we never discussed the price and the work has already been done.

On the positive side, it does look great. They filled the holes with metal and the finish is perfect. I still don't think it's worth $500 though.

He passed away when I was 12 in 1995. It has been a long time but still not easy. :/
Took me skydiving when I was 10. Lol
That's what he did. Skydiving stunt craziness.
