As far as cost is concerned I could care less. That is what insurance is for. What I am concerned about is getting a quality repair.
I understand. Body work and paint can be tricky, especially on our cars. Have you contacted Dennis out in St. Charles?

If not done right it will come back in a few months after being painted. Just make sure you don't cut corners or you may end up paying twice. Very tricky from what i've been told.
