Depending on how picky and how nice you want it, I would say 2500-4500. You pay for prep work, but that is how you get a nice job. Attention to details in prep is key. I would charge in that area though.

At a risk of sounding like a jerk



This question has been asked sooo many times...

Im doing all the prep work myself. I have a shop that quoted me $900 for paint + clear if i do all prep.

Sand entire car with grit 400. Wash car with dish detergent before and after to remove wax. Re-sand car look for shiny paint and sand shiny. Might have to re-sand car 3-4 times.

Removing all trim on doors fender quarter panels. Remove weather strips from windows.

Remove Side skirts, spoiler, even door locks....
