It depends on the quality of the work and paint you want done.

Be careful of any really cheap paint job places, not saying they can't do a good job, just make sure you know everything the painting includes.

You want to make sure the paint is high quality, and that they use a color coat and a clear coat. Some cheaper places use a paint that has the clear and color mixed.

Also check out the prepwork that they do. Do they remove the previous color coat? Do they sand? Do they remove dings, and dents?

You obviously want someone who removes the previous coat of paint and properly sands and preps the surface. Removing dents and dings is up to you.

Hope this helps!

hm.. fixing my lil applekat this summer cost me $1330 repainting the fenders, front bumper and driverside door and rear quarter panel.. only about 55% of the car.. they did a really good job.. i think you should save up a lil more for your paint job.. its going to be on your car for quite a while..

if your car is black.. you can keep the engine bay black.. and if you get a carbon fiber hood later.. you can also skip painting the hood..
