Re: How mush for a whole respray?

$500??! sounds to cheap to me... for a full spray, incl. engine bay, in show car finish you are looking at thousands.

If you stay the original colour it is a tad easier. darker colours will show inperfections.

It helps when you have a race car spray painter for a step mum lol

Re: How mush for a whole respray?

I paid $4000 for the respray on my car, that was door jams, tops of the engine bay, under bonett and boot lid, and its a good quality finish.

Same car............new lease on life

Re: How mush for a whole respray?

as I just posted here: http://www.fordforums.com/showthread...05&goto=postid



I stripped the car back 2 the shell myself, he did the dents, rust, fitted the kit and primed it, I rubbed it back and he sprayed it, then I put it back togther.
it cost me $550 for paint (thinners, primer, clear, hardner etc..) and $600 for labour, and as you can see, its a top job :)

more pics here

oh yeah my point was it is how much you pay, but somtimes paying cheap doesnt mean a cheap job, remember it come down to the skill of the person doing the job!

A good $500 repray?
You cant even buy good paint for $500 bucks.
A good paint job if done well will cost $3000 plus and more if you strip her done to her birthday suit.

I still miss my EX
but my aim is getting better
