Ok I got into a little fender bender quite a while back, and I still haven't done anything about it. My hood has been dented in on the passenger side right at the edge of the grille. There was no engine/chassis damage, however the hood is crumpled up a little bit. The top of the bumper is scraped a little bit, all that needs is a dash of paint. And the upper tie bar is dented in some, which has the headlight knocked back a little bit. Now as miniscule as the damage is, I've received several estimates all in the neighborhood of $1000-1200. Some guys say the hood can be repaired, but others say that it must be replaced altogether, as it wouldn't crumple anymore and would come straight through the windshield. I think these guys are yanking me and are just trying to rip me for another 500 bucks. Now the real kicker is the Acura 3-stage paint job, which will result in a $800 bill JUST for the painting of the small area. I need to get this fixed, as I may have to sell the Ledge soon (as much as it pains me). Would I be better off to search the junkyards for a new hood that's the same color and straighten out the tie bar myself, and maybe just have somebody do some paint on the bumper, or would I be better to just have somebody repair the hood as it is and repaint?
