Default Paint job on my 2005 Honda Accord Coupe?

My car is a dark blackish blue color. The hood area is full of little scratches. I wanted to get a bra for the hood but I heard that can also mess up the paint. So my plan is to get the paint job done one just the hood. Maaco is going to charge me $1,700 just for the hood and little dents on the door. I thinks that was way too much just for the hood. Is that the amount it would cost me? or are they trying to rip me off?

a bra helps protect the paint. only way it will mess the paint job up is "if" the panels paint starts to fade the underneath paint of the bra will remain the same as it was when you put bra on.

most dents can be popped out with a good plunger or buy one of those pop-a-dent. a good paint job would run you 3000 to 5000, so it sounds reasonable.
