Body shop estimate seems high, can I have a second opinion?
So, there are a lot of body shops around me, but only two that have any decent reviews.
I went out and got some estimates to paint my new full doors, and my hard top on my 99 TJ.
My issues are as follows:
Door paint job, factory paint color, digitally matched as best as they can get it. (they remove all subcomponents and paint) = $544.73
If I remove all of the subcomponents (trim, door handles, interior panels and reassemble myself) = $366.75
Hardtop, flat khaki paint job with something-something hardener = $566.08
Ridiculously, that includes an hour of shop labor to undo the four bolts on my truck to remove the hard top.
Am I getting royally boned for these two jobs? Should I be looking for a different shop?
I almost never work with body shops, so I have no idea of what is reasonable.
