    I am getting high quotes to have my new bumper painted. It is a CAPA certified bumper that is ready for paint (already primed). I've got two quotes so far: first was for $413 and second was for $281
    Both those are high sounding to me.
    I was expecting around $150 or at least under $200.
    Anyone know a shop in Richmond?

    Check the sale section...there's always painted bumpers for sale from guys replacing with aftermarket.

    FWIW...I paid 150 for mine to be painted.

    That's the price range I'm wanting to find. Approx $150 (or 200 installed)

    I already bought a CAPA certified bumper new (only $125 shipped). can't go wrong with a new bumper, just need paint. However, if I would have been able to find my color on classifieds here for $150 i would have been all over it

    Theres a guy i knew in New Kent right on Pocahontas trail. Woods body shop. They are dirt track racers and used to race with my good friend back in VA. They do great work. Not sure how much they would charge, but worth the look.

    Hey thanks a bunch. Should I mention you or will they not recognize you since it isn't a direct contact of yours?

    anybody else welcome to give names/numbers/estimates!
