I do not have cost numbers, but I can confirm there was quite an amount of manpower required to replace damaged sections/skin panels.

as the A300 ist out of production, there is no backlog of spare parts in storage.
Some tail parts have even to be made exclusively in the Nordenham plant (Germany) for this airframe.
Costly costly...
