Default Camry parts - how much

I need to fix the front bumper and the whole Toyota logo piece on my
2000 Camry. I want to get an idea how much they cost (parts and labor)
before I head to an autoshop. Thanks.

if your going to do the labor about 1500 and it depends if you use new or
used parts.
If you take it to a garage about 3000 dollars depending again on new or used
parts.
Can't see if there is any damage behind the bumper etc..
It also depends on your location.

That's costly. Do Toyota dealers cost more? My year 2000 Camry is
worth probably only $6000 to$7000.

Used bumpers are available for a lot less. Try Google.

Front bumper TO1000206 costs $31.79-52.79 (standard-premium) on
rockauto.com plus shipping. See URLs below:
The grille TO1200225 costs $11.39. The styrofoam bumper $20.79, the
metal bar $43-94 (standard-premium).

You may be able to get the cover/grille sanded and painted for about
$200 in independent shops. AAA-rated shops probably double is my
guess. But no reason you can't get them done for ~$500-700 unless you
got dual-tone or some really exotic paint color.

The thing is that when you take these parts you bought from
rockauto.com to the body shop, you just need to sound like you know
how to push in the plastic pins and turn the screws and that you'll
slap them back on in 20-30 minutes (really). There aren't that many
anchor pins and screws for the parts I mentioned.

Ask them about paint layers (I doubt you'll get more than 1), clear
coat and peel warranty (in case they do poorly mixing). If you look
gullible the price doubles.

That's some great information and specific steps. Thanks.

A few points that I don't understand very well. What's 'clear coat
and peel warrantly? Should I just check with an autoshop first to see
what price they offer?

It's hard for me to believe foam can be used as bumper on a car. Does
the original Toyota Camry also use foam bumper as you can see on my
picture? If not, then I was already ripped off last time.

My 99 Camry front bumper, inside the skin, is just dense foam.

Yes, you should get quotes from shops. Preferably AAA rated ones, but
smaller shops can give you lower prices (but may not be as good a
quality). So use references.

Clear coat is an extra layer of clear paint that protects the bottom
layer and gives it a deeper luster.

Peel warranty - when the paint is not properly mixed or preped, spots
can peel off. On plastic bumpers they need to soften the paint so it
will flex with the plastic. Otherwise the paint cracks and peel off. I
don't know what they term it exactly, but you know what I mean.

The foam is to keep the plastic bumper in shape ONLY. I don't think
anyone in the right mind is going to think it'll offer much of a
protection. You should have a flimsy looking metal bumper that
protects up to IIRC 2.5MPH behind the foam. Yeah, I know, they don't
build them like they used to.
