One of my friends told me around $700. But it depends on paint/body shop.

probably 250-300 for the labor. add on another 200 for paint i guess.

however, my estimates may be wrong.

it'll cost more because you have to custom mold those two ovals into the center-lid. to do that, they would already have to have laid and welded the additional plates in the area and would have to cut ovals for the lights after that. it'll be a little hard to do that, especially seeing how they'll probably be taller than the area filled between the center taillight piece.

Haha, body work isn't even an option around here.

CA body shops have much more competition in my opinion, and that helps drive the price down.

How much would it be to just fill in the holes from the "H" in the trunk. I have all my emlems and blacked out the "H" instead of removing it for that reason.

I paid $250 for my rear emblem to be shaved, but I'm sure it can be done for cheaper.

i got mine done at a shop called Chubby's Kustomz, but kevin (vis gt) shut him down for taking such a long time on my car. it was promised a 3-4 week job and it turned out to be around 8 or 9 total and i had to start paying for the rental car since the insurance wouldn't take care of it anymore.

that's why from now on, i'm taking it to a pro shop. if you want, i can get you hooked up at various other body shops.
