FML... Any Suggestions?

So I finally get happy that one thing is going right for me first time in past ever... I get my new bumper cover, came to the terminal in a nice big box.... take it home all happy and shit.. open up and see epic fail.. the paint got damaged.. not really BAD but it's scuffed up to plastic and about 8 inches will need to get repainted, a local body shop quoted me $150 to fix it, I think it's fu**ing bu****it so help a troll out, shoot some suggestions..

damn WTF? you can't get some of your money back from the vendor or file a claim with the shipping company? that's what I would do, then use the money you get back to pay for repairs...?

This is why I wanna learn to paint cars myself. Cuz it looks frikin fun and it's mad expensive to get done.

not really much you can do than try and get the shipping company to cover the damages or something like that

The thing is not about shipping company or anything... the thing is I don't want to pay 150 bucks to paint 8 damn inches of the bumper so I need some suggestions on a cheaper way out :-(
