Is this a good price for painting?

Ok, so the shop that has done body work on my car in the previous accidents I have been in quoted me this price for painting my Kaminari Urethane bodykit:

Front Bumper Cover - $150
Rear Bumper Cover - $150
Side Skirts - $200
TRD Head Light Covers - $0


The total cost is $500, and they were nice enough to offer to paint the headlight covers at no additional cost. Is this a fair deal? I'm not too sure what others have paid for theirs.

that sounds about right - usually it's about $200 per including install

This price does not include install. I told them I'd be delivering the pieces, then picking them up after painting, drying, curing process. Figured on installing them myself.

Depends on quality, type, and # of coats you are getting. But if its a autobody shop with a rep for good work, then that sounds about right.
The $300 maaco paint isn't that bad for the money but not very good quality. My friend had that done and you could see the white primer at some thin spots.

What kind of paint are they using?

300,000 KM/Sec. Its not just a good idea, its the law.

Thats a great price if they do good work. I've seen quality shops charge over $800 for a good job.

HA HA HA... no, not really. The accidents were never my fault. I was rear ended TWICE while sitting at a stop. This is not because of the accidents.

Back to the real topic, Carbon Blue is a three stage paint process. So that's the price I was quoted. This shop does all the repair work for the largest automotive group in the area (about a dozen shops). I've had work done there three times now, and it's always been A+. So they're my first choice. I'm on a first name basis with the shop now. They know me as CRBN BLU.

Maaco painted my kit for $275 with tax... and they said they would paint my headlight covers for under $50... They did an awesome job.
