    my wife's vehicle got a crease right below the door handle and a paintless guy got it out and it looks like new. I was amazed at the work.

    I can't imagine it costing $1000 for a paintless guy to do, I would get other quotes.

    $1k including three dings on passenger side.

    It took him almost two full days.

    Dang, $1k. It is a black art that takes a lot of technique and patience to get right. That would have probably cost $2k to get repainted at a body shop.
    I would have repainted it in my garage (if I would have done that damage to my own truck, and tried to straighten it myself, lol) - cost me $200 - $300 in materials, but probably 12 hours of work.
    You're much better off having it fixed the way you did.
