Question about 2008 Nissan Sentra 2.0
I got a minor scratch on the left bumper of my 2008 Nissan Sentra. The body repair guy is telling me I need to replace the left closing plate and will need to get some new paint over the bumper. Sound like a relatively simple process, but the total estimate came out to be over $1,600. Ridiculous. I found that left closing plate costs $20.80 at everythingnissan.com. But is this something I could do in my garage with a few screwdrivers and monkey wrenches?

If you got an itemized bill, check to see how much they are charging you for the replacement of the closing plate.
From experience, the labor for the paint of a bumper is what costs most.
When a bumper is replaced, in order to have the front end match the new paint on the new bumper, they have to blend the hood and fender covers, or you will notice the difference in paint color with the bumper.
Best is to ask body shop to explain the estimate in more detail. I also recommend that you have your auto insurance company pay for the repair, minus your deductible. This is why you have insurance.

SOURCE: bumper estimate
If this car is a second car why don't you find out if a shop would bench repair the bumper? You could take it off, have them recondition the part and then you reinstall it.
If you have time and luck there may be a twin car to yours in a Salvage yard. With even more luck it may be the same color. It may be good enough to bolt on without repainting.
