Cost to get the front bumper repainted

Hi

I have a nissan 2005 altima (Silver) and the paint on the front bumper has chipped off. I want to get it repainted and would like to know the avg cost before I start bargaining in the market.

I live in Houston, texas and if you know a good place to get this job done then do mention it.

Many Thanks in advance.

Mohit

Every time I check with body shops up here it's in the $375-450 range. Just for the bumper.

It also depends on the prep work needed. And every shop is gonna have different prices. Just get some quotes.

In August 2008, I paid $200 at Crown Nissan in Greenville, SC to fix a deep scratch and repaint the entire rear bumper. Still looks good and paint holding up.

350 at a local shop, but the best around it all depends on quality man. You gotta pay to play, and I dont mess around with paint top quality for me in that department only

AND he said front bumper, not rear to the 200 guy

Hi Mohit,

Last June (2011) I bought a S5 grille and took it to MAACO. They painted it for $97 since there was no real prep work to do. I figured...what the heck - and had them paint the whole front bumper and mirror caps for an additional $256.54 including tax. That included sanding and smoothing out the bumper and mirror caps, paint and clear coat. The work was satisfactory and has withheld up to this time. Just my personal experience. Oh, BTW...I live in SE Michigan.

In New York, I had my front bumper destroyed. The cost to get a replacement bumper, and sand it down and repaint from scratch was roughly $375, $200 for paint work BUT it was done cheap so It's slowly starting to crackle and flake. That's what you get for going the cheap route. It's not terrible, it's been 2 years however, the fact that I live in New York has something to do with it too. No ones bumpers are safe in this state. Especially if you go to the city a lot or live near it.

Speaking of painting the bumpers. I am thinking of getting my front bumper repainted, and the hood (because the black is starting to fade terribly)... I have always washed it by hand and had it professionally waxed. The rest of the car, however is in pretty decent shape for 7 years old.

Had my mirrors repainted by a local shop in the town I used to work, and he did both mirrors, with clear coat. Total I believe was $70 for those two, and they haven't faded or cracked one bit in the last year and a half.

Anyone else had trouble with the hood fading on black SE-Rs and able to do anything to prolong the shine? I have clay barred, used a compound, used the Black Box from Turtle Wax, and tons of other options (not all at once, of course) and I haven't been able to do much to restore shine, though it hasn't faded much since. Any tips or tricks would be great.

I feel your pain. The clearcoat on my Super Black SER is basically gone now. I always wash and wax by hand, so I was shocked to see it go so fast. I assume its due to a shoddy OEM paint job and having it parked outside year round. Currently shopping around for quotes on hood and front bumper myself.

I'm about to have mine repainted for $275 along with my grill. Both are all chipped up from rocks and shit..

I don't understand why the front of this car has weathered so much! Compared to my 19 year old Camry, I don't think I have a single rock chip on my front bumper of that car and I'm closing in on 300k miles so its always on the road!


03 SE 5sp*traded
05 SER 6sp
93 Camry LE-312k miles and still going as of 11/13 Oww!
