I scraped the side of my boyfriend Cadillac Escalade EXT 2003 truck against a wall in a parking garage the other day. Can anybody help me find an estimate on how much it is going to take to fix? i will most likely need a whole new left rear door and new left quarter panel and pearl white body paint on them both.

I hate to say this but it's not going to be cheap. Especially the paint job. I'm sure someone else will chime in. Pics would be good too. Good luck

They may be able to repaint the door but the body cladding will have to be replaced both on the door and the fender the shop will have to pull the cladding off to see if there is any more damage under there
Also it looks like the running board got damaged.
But don't feel too bad I had the same thing happen to my truck the body work didn't take long just the paint as the paint guy wanted to get just right so I know what your going through.

Many nice show cars, hot-rods, lowriders, motorcycles and even bicycles come out of Ca -- meaning there are great body shops. Unfortunately I do not know any of them. We have a lounge section here in the forum, I would recommend creating a different thread in there and ask if anyone has any info on local body shops (Looking for a good body shop in XXXXX). Post a link to this thread in your new post. Who knows, maybe you'll get lucky.

Mine costed me and my insurance 1000me(deducible) 2300 insurance give or take but I also had to get my rear bumper along with 2 park sensors replaced

the best thing I suggest is get a few quotes at different shops as some are good and honest some are not(if your wondering it wasn't me that did the damage my dad backed it into another truck and yes I was pissed but it is fixed now)
