Dent repair cost?

Hey guys, so I got into my first accident yesterday. Just a minor one luckily. I ended up denting the edge of my hood and area near the headlight. Not sure that I need to repaint it, but I might want to at least get the dent repaired. As this happened after 5pm, all of the dent repair places seem to be closed until Monday, so I havent been able to check the cost. How much could this end up costing me? I imagine the hood wouldnt be too much, while the other area would be much harder to do and might be worth leaving. Or if its too much, I may just leave it entirely, as it doesnt affect anything... just annoys me. Anyways, let me know what you guys think this could cost me. Thank you.

Ouch! I'm no expert, so I'm basically taking a stab in the dark, but if I was to get it fixed, I'd get it fully fixed. Seems like the hood and quarter panel will need to be worked on, and repainted. Seems like there's some scratches on the bumper as well, so if that will probably have to be repainted as well. I wouldn't be surprised if it'll set you back around $1000 from a good repairer in total, but as I said, I'm just taking a guess.

Good luck and keep us posted on how it goes!

I won't guess because I have no idea what the going labor rate is in your area (it's not listed so I'll assume you are in Komifornia) and how much competition is present in your market.

If you really want an accurate estimate, I'd suggest switching to AllState Insurance text them a pic of your damage, and they'll text you back after their e-adjuster reviews it.

Wow I did not realize something so minor would rack up such a high cost. Looks like I will have a sad accord for a little while.

It all depends if the repair time for the hood is higher than replacement, but I would imagine you could get that repaired for $500 to $1000. Ask your friends if they have a body shop they have used in the past and then go get at least 3 estimates. You will have a good idea what it costs after 3 places have quoted the repair.

First seller has 78 negative feedback in the last 12 months
Second seller has 274 negative feedback in the last 12 months.

They are also not a well known AFTERMARKET brand parts. These are the parts you see not lining up, distorted, and eventually rusted.

The cheapest way to do this is with OEM used parts. If you don't want used parts buy either new OEM or QUALITY aftermarket parts.

It was a suggestion, those were just two parts i quickly searched for (first two that came up infact).. Obviously there are tons of fenders and hoods on ebay..

Thanks for all of the help guys. This damage will definitely stay for a little while as I am not in a position where I can afford fixing/replacing anything at the moment. However, in the future I might end up just replacing it. Doesnt seem like a bad idea. Would the fender be easy to replace? I have done a few DIY things to the car in the past, so I am not afraid to get my hands dirty with it if it is reasonable.

I think it would be cheaper to just replace the hood than to remove the dent in it. Fixing that hood dent can easily run you $500+.
