Cheap body shop?

Hey guys, looking to get my front bumper painted. My friend wanted to try a manual car but he mistakened the gas for the brakes and then penetrated his camry's ahole. Luckily the front bumper just got a bunch of light scratches since it went right under his rear bumper. I did most of the sanding work so I'm just looking for someone to paint it. Anyone know a good cheap place?

In before people start lecturing you not to cheap out.

I've used advantage collision (5-12880 Bathgate Way, Richmond BC) before and think they charge a pretty good price for private repairs. Something like $150 to repaint part of my trunk that was scratched and $200 to do a bumper. Haven't been back for a while so I can't say for sure

There's one deep scratch so that deal won't work for me. Gave advantage a call, waiting for someone to call me back and I'll check those ads in Surrey.

Thanks

Lol I would but it's got a different paint colour then factory so getting the right colour is probably going to be hard.

If you want cheap, Tao's Autobody Collision (1129 Kingsway, Vancouver, BC V5V 3C9) might be a place you want to check out.

Thing is with them, the quality varies. Sometimes it'll turn out nice however sometimes you can tell it's a cheap job. But at the prices they quote (ie. coworker had door repainted and fixed due to dent/scrape from parking lot pillar, $1000 vs $1800), it's worth a shot.

Never heard of Advantage Collision but nice tip, will check them out if i ever need any autobody repairs.

There is a cheap shop on the surrey side of the patullo bridge. Friend had his bumper sprayed and it looked good.

Dirt cheap too.

Oh, small problem. English isn't on the top of the languages offered.
