Re: How much will it cost?
That sounds like a good price, but I'd be interested in the paint that was used. I'm in the stage of re-building an XW and I intend to do a bare metal respray. I'm stripping the old paint, taking the car to a bare shell and putting the undercoat/high fill on myself, then guide coating and getting it ready to take to a shop for them to lay the top coat and clear on. I've bought the paint myself and that cost $1300. I'm using PPG two pack. I can only do this because i've got the facilities but it's a hell of a lot of work.
I would have thought a re-spray (drive in and drive away) would cost around 8K as well. Smash repairers don't like these jobs cause it takes away their insurance jobs (bolt off, bolt on, fast money) and they'll have you're car for ages.
Hope you find someone to do it for you though. Good Luck!
