Default $650 for this repair. Sounds reasonable?

I got quoted $650 to repair my passenger side fender and to paint my entire front bumper + TTE lip + install it. He said it would be better to repair so he doesn't need to blend the hood and door. Does this sound reasonable or should I keep shopping around?

If you have seen the shops work (other cars they have repaired) and know what brand of paint they will be using that's a pretty reasonable price.

Replacing the fender with a new one would require to re blend the whole front end so he is correct. Good thing your headlight didn't get damaged.

I'm going to agree that it is a reasonable price.

Very reasonable price assuming the work is good. I take it you've seen vehicles the shop has completed?

the price seams right but what you said about blending does not. even repaired that whole fender has to be painted, which means it needs to have the door blended.
