I took my car once to get the dents taken out because food lion left their carts all out during hurricane isabel(they are some dumbass people) and the estimate from toyota for 3 dents and to paint half my car was $1150. Thank goodness i didnt have to pay for it. Took me like 3 weeks of harassing them to get me the money to fix it. And trust me, when it says they arent liable for damages to vehicles bullshit on their signs in the parking lots, dont believe it. If something happens, go directly to the store manager or highest person on duty, and tell them you have witnesses to their negligence...they dont do that much other than send a report to corporate, but thats when you have to do some paperwork and list names. They asked me to put like 3 witnesses down, phone numbers and addresses to contact them(but they didnt).

anyway, I've done some research and the most a body shop can charge you with a good full paint job and mounted a body kit would be around $1800-2500 and $2500 being the kit has horrible fitment. The body shop I got a quote from said he can't take out the quater Mirror because that will be too expensive puke puke I'm just curious here what step they did before start painting my car...(example what will they remove) thanx
