Front end respray.

I am taking my 2000 Box in to have the front end painted. Can't stand looking at all the small stone chips on the bumper and hood. The shop is taking off the hood to sand and paint, blending in fenders, and removing the bumper to paint. He is also going to repaint the front vents. Charging me 850.00. Has anyone had this done? Is this a decent price? I have had this guy do some work before so I know he does great work.
I'll post some before and after pics in a couple of weeks.

The price is more than fair - especially if it involves high quality work.

Just had the rear cover sprayed for $900. So, as JD said, the price is more than fair for a front cover and hood.

I had the rear bumper painted last year for 350.00! This guy has a shop at his home. I have been real happy with the job. So, I guess the price is good. Thanks.
