the estimate i have is $1700.
i thought that was a bit steep, but am informed that a new one would cost $3k....
my concern is that even if we did this plastic welding, that the area might still be weak and easily redamaged, OR the whole part is weak to begin with, and i just damage another side.
my other concern is that i understand getting the paint color right again to match the rest of the car (it is shadow), is difficult as well because of the 3 different layers of paint and the changes it goes through depending on the light.
anyway..... do you guys think it is worthwhile doing?
