If it includes blending as well, I'd say that's a good price. grin

Was that $199 shipped for both fenders, or was it $199 for each fender? If that was the total cost for both fenders, that would mean that the body shop would be charging you around $300 - $400 for the paint/install. A little steep IMO.

Maybe, but everyone has to remember we all live in different parts of the US so a good price down south will be different from a good price up north.

Well the x-1 fenders are fibergalss so a GOOD bodyshop should

Sand and finished the fenders
glazed them to remove all pinholes and imperfections
test fit
make adjustments where nessacary
paint both sides
install
blend and clear coat outer side




I would say no more than 500 for both.
