Mom hit my car

How much do you think this cost by a decent body shop? I have no experience with repainting so I want to have a ballpark just in case they are charging way too high. This is what's left over after some clay and rubbing compound. Its next to the rear tire and bumper.

Also any suggestions for a body shop in Socal?

Thanks!

is that paint missing, or still paint transfer? Ill be coming home from santa margarita thursday afternoon if you want me to stop by and take a look at it. looks like some paint is missing near the body edge for sure, but the upper part looks like paint transfer that "should" come off

but if you are set on bodyshop, I would estimate about $300-500 or so

Thanks for the reply. I double checked the top part and it doesn't come off . I wish she could have just hit my rear bumper entirely and that would be my excuse to go M-tech haha. I'll probably be going to a body shop today to get some quotes. Hopefully it won't be so bad.
