$2k????That is very expensive! Glad mine is not that bad. I can live with that if someone is charging me $2k.

Why can't they just sand it off and repolish it?
It was keyed across 3 panels. One scratch down the entire left side. The bulk of the cost was the labor involved in painting half a car at the ~$70/mo labor rate.

It was a purchased car that I intended on reselling, so I wanted the repair job to be top notch and as close to new as possible.
