It say Blend the fender... but i looks to ne that the fender is already the wrong color. considering the only real point the the fender touchs (other then the door) is the hood(that is a a drasticly different angle) id have the fender painted solid (compleat/no blend)

Aslong as they blend the door back, you'll be ok

Sounds like a very good deal to me as long as they do quality work. You probably already know that crappy work will most likely just end up costing more in the end.

the fender is the correct color, but it does not match the car perfect. the guy said that just like him, GM mixes paint everyday and sometimes it can be a tad different. He said the tricoat really messes with that also. He will do the best he can.

I would check other work they have done. Remember that you get what you pay for. & usually cheap means cheap. If what you want is to hide the rust so you can sell the car better, I say great price. But if you plan to stay with the car, then you problably wont be 100% satisfied at the end.

I'd say that is a pretty good deal. I doubt you will find much lower than that.

I'd stick with the other guys then. The Color is a bitch to match though, wonder where they'll get their paint.

how concerned should I be about perfection? This paint is strictly to be good enough to sell the vehicle. Possbile that it would look worse than it is? Peter?

A lot of reputable shops won't touch rust because they can't guarantee it won't return.
