350z damage
350z damage  
My friends 350z got bumped in the parking lot any idea how much it would cost to fix the damage, the damage is to th e 1/4 panel which has a dent and paint is chipped off and to the front bumper a little

Answer
Hi Elias....Judging by how the left front fender and front bumper cover have separated, as well as how the fender gap at the headlight is very much mis-aligned, there is the definite possibility of hidden damage. As the fender has been somewhat distorted/twisted/damaged at the front, depending on the price of a new fender, it may be just as economical to replace it. In regards to the bumper cover, this appears from your picture to be repairable at around 5.0 Hours.

That being said, my estimate for just the visible damage repairing both the fender and bumper cover, would be in the area of $1800.00

Please remember, this is just an estimate from the picture you provided. For a definite amount, the vehicle will need to be torn down to see any other hidden damage.

Hope this at least gives you an idea of what you could expect....Thanks for your question....Dave.
