reasonable price repaint?

quick question guys
i got about 5 days for my scheduled appointment
i know the guy, he has his own body shop

heres what i have/need:
*so my left frame by the left fender isn't right and needs to be pulled due to an accident about 4 years ago
and leaves a gap between the hood and the left fender
*my one piece front bumper had a headlight nozzle before, but i patched it up and did a bad job with some traces
and spray painted the bumper but not so nice lol

he offered to fix the nozzle and repaint the bumper and the two fenders
he will also fix the broken mounting brackets of the bumper
the left headlight do not sit flush due to the bad frame, a recognizeable space between headlight and fender, that he said he'll fix
and the bad frame for $900


i know the inferno red crystalized paint is expensive but is $900 a fair price?

thanks!

For the repairs and paint described above, that's a very fair price.

For a proper job, that's great price. For crappy one, not even $900 to you is worth it.

NO! You can't just paint two fenders and a bumper with a color like that. At the bare minimum he will HAVE to blend the hood (and should blend both front doors as well to be professional) or he's going to have one hell of a time trying to color match to the original fun faded paint. Trust me I've worked in the auto body industry for 10+ years.

i understand what u say as he addressed me the same thing
hes offering the hood painted for 400 but had to say no for now
my main concern is the headlight/fender fitting because of the frame
i painted my bumper and has imperfections and messed up covering the headlight washer holes and it bubble up thats why he asked to do the bumper
and the fender he offered to do both for 200
700 for the bumper and frame job+200for fenders=900
should i have him do panel by panel first?
because getting the whole car painted at once is so damn expensive
and yea my car has faded a bit which is harder to color match =/
