panel and paint

i need to no how much it would approx cost to pannel and paint my xa
acrylic?
2pac?

Bro dad and i have done all the door arches in hammercoat charcoal and the engine bay in hammercoat blue and underside of the bonnet in blue and charcoal.
Only the outside of the car needs doing.
Im going to carpet all of the boot and install mdf in the side pannels so thats ok.

Im thinking of getting it painted in mettalic grey like on the xr6t but i dont think it will show of all the cars curves im not sure.

Mabey i should grab a can of midnight blue from supercheap and paint it myself at work we have all the tools and i could save up to get a nice paint job in a couple of months.

Its in primer at the moment and i get heaps of stares especially from the coppers lol

Re: panel and paint

I would use 2 pac its far more superior than acylic, main reason is that it lasts a hell of alot longer.

Re: panel and paint

I just had my XA GT COUPE painted cost me $3000 just for the paint job no panel work
this included engine bay, boot, door jams,under bonnet and boot,gt blackouts everything.
Also try Carlise or swan tafe (same thing) they also do paint jobs at a very good price and I think a really good job .Also go 2pac .As for colours go for something bright like xa colour yellow glow or maybe blood orange from the the new BA series bright colours show the lines better if you want darker colour xa gt wild violiet (Purple colour) with flat black for the black outs or xa or xb mulberry (very nice and not many around) using sliver for black outs looks nice

Re: panel and paint

Yes they are apprentices that do it, probably 3rd and 4th year and you would be paying for the materials only not for labour.

Yes they are apprentices thats the best thing . Must painters don't care any more but apprentices are very keen . Plus they don't let the cars go out unless its right. Most of the paint jobs I've seen that impressed me were done by apprentices even seen some in magazines.So give them a call I wish they did mine now.

Re: panel and paint

My XA's quoted at $6000 for a baremetal respray in 2 pac copper bronze mettalic with satin gt blackouts door jambs, boot & engine bay, work is starting in a few months,

I'm doing a course on panelbeating and spray painting at a local tafe and they cannot do work on your own car, they are not allowed to make any money as its taking business away from panelshops, The only way you can do it is bring you own car in and do the work yourself.
