Price for repainting whole car (perfect)?

I plan to repaint my whole car inside and outside to brass rusty color.

That means i would change the color of my fresco blue currently to brass color (rust). Even engine bay, trunk and hood bottom faces, etc....

So, can anybody tell me how much will it cost? I am in Baton ROuge, Louisiana.

Any connection? hook it up please....!!!

Thanks

My friend just got his Si painted, they did everything except the engine bay and the interior, and it only cost $700. They did an amazing job. I would think you wouldn't have to spend more than $2,000, but that's if there's no body damage or rust.

With a very expensive paint job it costs a lot because they do paint everywhere and there is a lot of labor to do in removing and putting things back on and it will take more if they do like 5 layers of paint.

Find someone with a AirCompresser and a paint gun, spend about 600$ on paint and Clear(craps expensive) You need alot of different sand paper, get some plastic and a staple gun. Build a booth in your garage and spray it yourself. The more labor you do yourself the cheaper it will be. I was going to rent a booth, and have my father in law help me. I have seen him paint 3 cars and all beautifull. Or you can remove all the parts yourself, tape it off and tow it to Earl Shibe and pay 100$. As long as you remove all the parts and tape it off im sure you can get a nice paint job.

I would think it would be hard to paint w/ metalics if you haven't painted much. I'd like to learn how to paint though, and get a gun and some factory paint.

My very first car was a jeep wrangler I did that replaced the hood sand and body work taped it off stripped it completely drove it to Earl Shibe it was painted in a nice metallic green with a blue tint clear man that car looked good I only paid $170 for the paint job with two coats of clear. I won two trohpies and the jeep was stolen 8 months later it was the best looking Jeep on campus. I still miss it. Did all the work myself ludes are not as easy to strip plus ludes are alot more complicated than a 1990 jeep wrangler.

Repaint

My bill came up to $5250. That included mounting the Online body kit, taking out all the dents and spraying the car, door jams, and the engine bay.

Just brought my CRX home from the shop. Custom painting is not cheap. The type of paint used is a factor along with preparation, paint color and how much of the car needs bodywork. Here is what $2500 buys in my case (not including parts). This does not include stripping and refinishing the engine bay to match-we kept it black.
1.$800 worth of PPG Acrylic Lacquer and primer, plus masking and other prep materials.
2.Take car apart-doors, hatch, hood, all rubber and edges. remove/replace windshield
3. Take doors apart and paint inside and along edges; same for hatch. Prepare new hood the same way. (Old hood was hail damaged) "Cut in" all exposed metal edges.
4. Block sand, repair hail damaged panels along with door dings using almost NO filler, primer and block sand again-4 times to insure no waviness.
5. Apply 5 color coats of paint (Cereulian Blue Metallic) and a similar number of clear coats. Each coat gets sanded.
6. Let car cure for several days and then it is ready for its first of several buffings.
7. Reassemble car. All moldings were replaced with new where needed. All rubber ones were as the Carolina sun had done them in after 14 years.
Long reply-yes Was this a typical project, my shop says yes. He cannot do a good job for much less and this car had the interior completely removed. I am well aware that MAACO and Earl Sheib do it for a lot less-but you will only get their choice of colors and the quality of workmanship can sometimes be questionable. If you go with them be very careful how the car is prepped as this is the key to agood paint job. The shop I used does a lot of street rods and restoration projects.
A regular body shop with booth and using urethane paints will probably charge "book rate" to do a car.
Good luck.
