Default average cost to repaint fender?

i've never had to have any paint work done on a car, so I have no idea what is/isn't a good deal. Any idea what a good price would be to have a 2005 wrx front left fender (already removed) would cost to be repainted?

i just called maaco to get a basic idea and they said $125-250 depending on the paint type.

$200 from lance to fix a dent and repaint the fender (I believe he painted the whole thing because blending is a PITA) with no blending into the hood.

Lance isn't around anymore so I don't have a prob posting the price and it's a good starting point. He did awesome work and you should expect to pay more for average work.

i gotcha. i figured it would be cheaper since it's a single fender already off the car (no dent repair).

dude, you and I could do a better job than maaco ourselves.

got a buddy with a spray gun, and we can pick up paint at mattos. any surface imperfections we can deal with since I have a dewalt buffer + pads etc.

yes, a junkyard. pick a part! it will even have the fading you want to match your car.

id rather have the hood, front fenders, and bumper blended than to put a freshly painted fender on my car. but thats just me

I'm actually about to get mine done next week. There's a chunk out near the fog bezel that they have to putty in and then I'm getting it completely redone since the previous owner got some curb rash. There gonna match my STI splitters and put those on and my front lip if I need them to. I'm trading it out but I think he said somewhere around $250 is what it would normally cost.

I agree, you can do better yourself then going to Maaco. With black you shouldn't have to blend anything except the door. If the damage is near the headlight then you should be ok without blending. You should expect to pay at least 250 or so for a good shop to paint a fender with damage.
