Paint Supplies - 109.20 @ $26.00/hour for 4.2 hours (I don't get how they want to charge me hourly for painting supplies)
Subtotal - 512.60
Tax - 11.42
TOTAL - 524.02
Now again, that was only for repair. He said a brand new bumper w/ paint and labor was around $700.
That's a high estimate. You should definitely get a new bumper from the dealer and take it to a body shop to get painted.
I did that on my front bumper with the total cost of: $560
$260 - Bumper unpainted from dealer
$300 - Paint and installation of new bumper at a local body shop
I plan on doing this same thing to replace my cracked rear bumper now too.
