What country are you speaking about? Wouldn't it be easier to make a
phone call to find out exactly from them what their pricing would be for
the job?

Especially since "Honda" doesn't do the work...

Your dealer is an independantly owned shop. They are the only ones
that can give you their price, and it is likely less expensive to go
to a trusted local collision/paint shop.

A lot of dealers don't even have bodyshops; they contract out to a local
independent bodyshop to do the work for them.

I'm going to hazard a guess of about $900 plus tax for those two
fenders. They don't have to do any masking, but they still have to prep
both of them.

Ever seen how floppy fenders are when they're not bolted down? I hope
Brian's new fenders don't bend and wreck his new paint!

And they usually do decent driver quality work especially if you slip
the operators a few extra bucks.
