    How much $ to repaint my Camaro?

    My SS is 7 years old now, and even though i really take good care of her, she could use a fresh paint job to make her stand out again. Has anyone had there entire car repainted here? I might go with a solid color again. If I dont, Ill do either stripes or hockey sticks. I know prices will vary, I just want a ballpark idea so I can decide when Ill repaint her.

    prices on a paint job can vary from 500-10,000. Its going to add quite a bit to do the hockey sticks or stripes, i would just suggest doing a one color paint job and getting the decals. But its up to you. I think you can find a good paint job for around 2 grand. Will look better than the factory job.

    The hockey stripe ones look good, i plan on ordering some soon. Its just going to cost alot to have them done right. Im sure it will look alittle better if they are painted but, im sure its going to be expensive

    I PAID $3500 TO GET MY 96 SS #430 REPAINTED SOLID BRIGHT RED COLOR. IT CAME OUT EXCELLENT AND I WOULD DO IT AGAIN IN A SECOND. I RECOMMEND THAT IF YOU DECIDE TO PAINT IT, DON'T BE CHEAP ABOUT IT. YOU TRULY WILL GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR AND I HAVE COME TO REALIZE THIS FROM EXPERIENCE. DON'T RUSH INTO IT AND MAKE SURE THAT YOU ARE COMPLETELY COMFORTABLE WITH THE PAINTER OR SHOP. my 2 cents

    I Had Vinyl Stripe Decals Also, They Look Really Good And I Would Recommend Them Over Getting The Stripes Painted Anyday Considering If You Ever Want To Switch Up Your Look Its Easy And Simple To Take Them Off And/or Put On New One's.

    Yes its a lot. You dont have to spend as much as i did, but prepared to spend at least 2000$ and do it right so you dont have to do it again. Goddluck!
