I wasn't talking ...
I wasn't talking with the owner for more than 15 seconds before I was told that the entire car needed to be repainted and the work would start at $5K. I have very minor paint touch ups required on a car (small rock chips, dents, scuffs) I've worked in the automotive industry in earlier years and the work required on my car should range between $700-1200 MAX.

There appears to be a misunderstanding as to what the expectations were. I was under the assumption that the customer was looking to do a complete paint and repair, not just cosmetic touch ups. At the time, there was no written estimate given, only a verbal. We take pride in the quality of the repairs we do and we want to do the best job possible for our customers.
