Cost to paint fender flares

Hi guys. Bought a set of fender flares from a guy on ebay a few months back. They are used, and have been painted smoke already. My truck is galaxy black. Anyway, I took them to a body shop and asked for quote to repaint them. They told me the cost is much reduced based on the fact that they need only to be lightly wet sanded and painted. They quoted me $300. Does this sound right, or should I try elsewhere?

Re: Cost to paint fender flares

That sounds like what a body shop would charge. I painted mine myself for about $100. I bought a spray gun for $15 from harbour freight and the paint was about $85. I already had a buffer and compressor though.

I have the needed tools for the most part. I'm just afraid to attempt galaxy black on my own.

BTW, I happen to have a mutual friend with the body shop owner. The original quote was about $470, the $300 was a "discount"

Re: Cost to paint fender flares

it's really not that difficult. you aren't laying a candy down or need curing lamps. just remember the final finish will only be as good as your prep work. take your time and it will be just fine.
