Reflector Autobody Modification - Canada

Anyone get the reflector holes filled in and repainted by a body shop in Canada? How much did it costs? I just got qouted 1.6k which is just shy of buying a painted and shipped Euro Bumper from IND.

How many shops did you try? $1600 is steep and yes at that price; you might as well get an after market bumper.

Have you tried the clear or paint matched reflectors 1st?

While it's nice to get rid of the reflectors, the price of either a new bumper or filling in the holes is just hard to justify. I'd rather just keep the stock paint intact. You don't have to worry about a paint match issue this way.

When I had my front bumper repainted because someone gouged it in a parking garage I paid 550 which included repainting my bumper and filling the holes in. That is steep

I've done this on my last 2 cars while molding my lip, shaving your reflector + repaint should not cost that much. $600-700 for a clean job, imo.
