What would you do?

So before I switched out my stock tail lights to LEDs I backed into a tree and kinda messed up my rear left corner panel where the license plate is located. I also re located my license plate to the spare tire. So now I have a dent and the holes left behind and the corner looks sad.. A body shop wants $350 to make it like new.
Should I pay that or buy some type of corner body armor and just cover it? Also would body armor work win my round LEDs?

Get corners, and be done looking at that dent. Smittybilt has them for like $275 set. Easy Easy Easy to put on. I'm very happy with mine, take lots of abuse.

don't spend the money at a shop buy or make corner armor. they sell corner armor that has the cutout for the 4" LED tail light. for $350 you could have some new armor instead of crappy jeep body pannel to help protect your Jeep next time you wheel or for next time you feel the need to back in to a tree.

I think poision spyder makes armour with no cut out's. Then just mark and cut yourself.

Here's some pics I just took of it.
I may just have a shop do it because it will bother me... I just hate to spend 350 on something so small
