thats how much it would be here (nova scotia). Your basically asking for the front to be recleared and the front bumper to be painted and cleared. Then sand down the entire trunk and clear coat that too. Around here a semi descent paint job is $3k

my car has the two holes and never really bothered me. Try taking your car to a detailing place and ask how much to polish/wax your car. That should fix the trunk and the two gm badges

Have you tried getting the GM square marks and the badge marks on the back out yourself? My car had spots like that when I debadged it and I used scratchX and some quality car soap and it came out. Make sure you wax after scatchX.
Also Im pretty sure auto parts stores sell plugs for the bumper holes. Temp fix for until you get them filled.
