Car accident but cheap paint job...need some info

K guys a quick question...jus got home from watchin a movie with my gf and i hit a car goin out of the isle in the parkin lot. I pulled over and looked at the car i hit and jus scratches and chipped paint. but no damage other than the paint. i ran my fingers through the other cars bumper and paint jus started comin off in lines. correct me if im wrong but i kno it shouldnt do that unless its cheap paint job rite??? the damage on my car was just scratches too but paint didnt come off. but the other car seem like you can just peel it rite off. how much are those paint jobs anyway?? im thinkink it should cost more than 150 for the rear side bumper for the same kind of paint rite??? it seems like the paint wasnt sticking to the bumper itself and comes rite off...i have a paint off that guys car and i can take a pic 2morrow to show you guys wat im talkin bout...

sounds like that will be up to your insurance company.

Or did you guys decide to settle it amongst yourselves?

sounds cheap/old.
so if that guy takes his car to carwash, his paint chips off too. the pressure water will take that off. so if he tells you it costed a lot for the paintjob and asks alot, tell him to fuck off

That's a load of crap... painting a rear bumper with PPG or DuPont (good paint) with a special effect like chameleon or iridescent clearcoat won't even cost that much!!

Tell him to get three estimates for you to look at, and if he balks at the idea, tell him to shove off.

the paint sounds old and sounds like it was on cheap...so to have it redone, it shouldn't be that much
