Long story short I need to replace my hood and fender. MAACO quoted me $442.40 to paint the replacement hood and fender. I found the hood and fender on www.hondaautomotiveparts.com but they seem to be unpainted, is there a place I can buy these prepainted for a reasonable price?
Also, what do you think about getting non-OEM parts from someplace like this?
Non OEM is fine, or try a junkyard for a cheaper OEM product. Many aftermarket parts are plastic instead of metal, so just keep that in mind and look for the metal ones if that's what you want.

this is true. i work in the parts warehouse and all the fenders, hoods, doors, etc are black. ready to paint.
yup i did the same for awhile shipping and receiving manager regal honda acura.... the main reason why these parts dont come painted is because damage during shipment and it would cost honda to much money to pay for damages and what not idk if you ever seen the honda truck on its first few deliveries they slap it full !!
