Re: how much for door shut respray?

$1200 is about the cost of the material.

Forget $60.00 per litre for colour....you ain't using motorspray obviously.
what about hardners, and reducers, sand papers, and primers (most primers require their own hardners and reducers.)
Even if the car is dry sanded using a dynabrade, the discs still run out at a small fortune.
Then there is oven hire... can be as much as $200 per hour, dependant on the way the shop costs it.
What about de-nibbing and cutters/polishes...

It all adds up.
EG. for ME to buy 4 litres of colour and clear (with hardner) is bout $550, without reducers....in glasurit.

$1200 is a great mates rate, don't piss in his pocket, smile when ya pay him :)

Plus factor in any repairs that are needed. (if bothering)

Cheers
Jas

I guess you pay retail on your paint ?

Do the prep work myself? Nuh-uh, I don't think so! If prepping involves providing the painter with a straight, bare metal car (or in primer only), then I CBF. I'd rather pay someone to do the lot, becaue I wouldn't have the time, and I DON'T have the skill, to do all that.

*sigh* more $$$ to throw at the car lol
