    weeeeeeellllllllllllllll im the victim of a hit and run situation. I need to get some things replaced/undented/painted. Now, heres the deal, besides needing to look under the car for my .6 neg toe in, im going to need

    --a rear bumper replaced and painted
    --a few decent sized dents around the gas cap to be undone (maybe)
    --a few sections around/in the dents to be resprayed
    --and where the rear bumper wraps around to the rear tire, all that metal shit is all bent to fuck... so im thinking bending it back and welding the cracks in the metal, or not doing that at all and just making it so the rear bumper can mount on it and hide it.

    Its not that im lazy, but we are getting shit on for snow and i doubt ill be able to go to a body shop tomarrow, and i want to know asap. Any insight, ball park guesstimations, or whatever will be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks guys. :D

    just a new bumper and paint for it will run you around 800. i know from a similar experience.

    I think you got took. But it depends on the type of paint. I'd say if you shop around, a bumper cover can be had for around 150-200, and can be shot for around 150. No more than 400 tops for the bumper and paint. the body work will be a bit more obviously.
