I need to buy a new bumper for my 2008 phantom blue hatch.

Any ideas what a good paint job for it would cost? I want it to match the rest of the car exactly.

I dont know much about this stuff, so if anyone does it would be great.

Thanks

Do you know how much it would be for a lip to be painted?

Wow that's crazy, I never would've guessed it would cost that much. looks like more saving for me D: But I was at a garage that had a paint room and said they charge $50/hour is that a good price give or take?

$50.00 an hour is a very average price for body shop work, But I would rather they quote me a set amount for the project that way you know they wont go over..

Ya I wasn't planning to get a lip at the time so I just asked the rate. I'm sure it could amount to plenty more once paint and supplies are factored in :p

The paint and supplies is really not that much, Probably around $55-$80 in materials.
