I had to pay $380 to get a small crack in my bumper fixed and a new paint. So this sounds fair

if you are going to do it yourself and get touch-up paint, the color code should be on the sticker on the bottom part of the door jamb. then a auto parts store can get ya some.

yeah, u can get repair kits at auto store for any gouges etc. and duplicolor usually has touchup paint that will come close to factory colors(also at auto stores). just take ur time and you can get it close to factory. the question is how confident are you with ur skills. another option is to contact the ford dealership or maybe a car rental place like enterprise to see who they use that comes around on a weekly or bi-weekly basis to do touchup repairs on minor paint and body. they are usually very cost effective. i had a scratch on my bumper cover and a paint chip in mu passenger door and they did a most excellent job and they charged $40. the charges in ur area will vary. also check ur yellow pages for such companies that provide paint chip repair service.
