    typical cost of paint job?

    hey just want to get a feel of what a deacent paint job would run me, i have been looking local here getting estimates and to be honest there all over the place on pricing.

    here is what i want done, the car is a 99 ss vert, its black, i want to keep it black, so im not getting the door jambs paintd or under the trunk thats fine, im going to replace the front bumper and a few flex dimples need to be pulled out but other then that i want to keep the car black.

    so what should i expect?

    Navy Blue Metallic
    98 T/A w/a little mods...

    The best quote I got for my 98 T/A was $2500 for factory color (NBM) and 4 coats clear. If I wanted a whole new color (I asked about Black) he said it would be between $3200 and $3800. Depended on how much detail I wanted done. And if I wanted more custom work it went up....

    Shop around, go see their work, asked all the questions, get referals ..

    my car is black now. i wanted to paint it pewter metallic with black wheels. they said it would cost me between 4000-5000 to do the whole car including jams and engine bay. i decided id rather save a little more $$$ and get an H/C/I set up. good luck

    thats cheap, especially for a 'good shop'. Materials alone on this should cost around 1000 if theyre using QUALITY paint and clear.

    I would say $1500 is a steal! If you go with a good paint(Utech, HoK, PPG) you will have about 600-800 in materials. If they are just doing a scuff and shoot, 1500 isnt too bad, good for you! Make sure to look at their work, and make sure they are insured. I have saw some shabby jobs at supposedly "professional" paint shops. Also see if they are going to wet sand and buff it...

    yup, been in the community for 20+ years man, the more i think about it id say around the 2k price rang is about right for keeping the same color.

    Ive had personal experience twice with painting the entire car and for a decent paint job it would cost you between 2-2.5k, now one warning is after you get the car back you will most likely after a couple of weeks have chips all over your front bumper and hood, since they dont do a good job prepping and painting those and since its the first place that a rock hits it will show up immediatly. Want to stress to them to make sure that the paint doesnt do that but they all say the same thing, its a low car and nothing is like factory paint. Either way GL with it and let us know how it turns out by some pics if you decide to do it.
