Hey guys...bad news..gotta scratch =(

It's on my front drivers side fender, on the curvy part in front of the side mirror... Damn, I'm touching it up and I'm gonna try to do my best job to see if I'm happy with it..but incase I'm not happy with it, how much do you guys think it would cost to get the fender painted??

I was washing it and of course I slipped and the nozzle tip went right in and made about a 3/4in long scratch pretty deep. It was my own stupid ass fault, so anyways, I'm thinkin about getting it repainted at honda or replaced, so I'd like to have an idea even before I go to see about an estimate.

thanks guys

Forgot to let you guys know its a 08 Si

yea I realize that, but would they just do the small section, or would they repaint the whole fender? $400-$600 isn't that bad to me. I'm pretty pissed off about it, but its not a major setback.

but you say that the touch up paint didn't match correctly?? Are you talking about the touchup paint pens or the actual paint they use to redo car parts/damage? What does it look like? Is it really noticeable? This is kinda why I want them to repaint the whole fender. It's brand new...they should be able to get it to match... 8(

Sorry about being anal, but if I get it re-painted and paying that much, I would atleast expect them to get it to match up...

well, I went and got a quote for it... I found out that a friend of a friend of mine works at Honda Collision here in Brandon, and basically he quoted me the whole shebang at $220. I think thats pretty damn good so I'm getting it done.

thanks anyways guys
