Repaint Rear Bumper

Can somebody give me some advises where to get my rear bumper repainted? and how much would it cost to get it repainted?

I got an arm-length scratch/key on my rear bumper at my garage friday night. It was pretty much intentional, but the parking management office cannot do anything about it. I guess the monthly parking fee $250 wasn't enough to keep them awake!!!

There was a thread about body shops recently, but go to Mike's Auto Body in Malden. Dick's is good too but way too slow and they have issues with communication.

What happened to your car Chris? I haven't seen you lately.

I am so pissed at the Trilogy parking management.

Trilogy parking is horrible.. I moved about two months ago to the West End.

Go to Dick's if you can afford it or your insurance is covering it. Otherwise, Mike's in Malden is pretty good with a reasonable price. I am getting mine fix at Mike's.

Just wondering which body shop did you go? Dicks?

And do you know how much they charge for just a whole rear bumper repaint?

Thanks

Thank you, I got a quota of $1400 to replace the front bumper and autobarn. I think maybe it's kinda too expensive?
