Front Bumper Repaint Cost

I've discovered a small spider crack in the front bumper on my car . I'm curious what the ballpark cost of a respray would be?

Thanks,
Eric

The Bodyshop near me called Y&S autobody charges $600 bucks but its really good work, they are pretty much the gold standard when it comes to OEM paint jobs and quality.

I was quoted at $1.2k at one shop,$350 at another. Both PCA sponsors,both used Glasurit paint. Go figure. Just ask around for recommendations and go to a shop you feel comfortable with. You may want to give your dealership a call and see who they use.

Many times the quote you will get for this work will depend on how busy the shop is. There not much profit in these small jobs so finding someone who does quality work and isn't too busy is the challenge.
Check with your insurance agent. You are more likely to get a better deal if you business is based on an established relationship.
