cost of painting a car?


Recommended Posts

i was just wondering if someone knows roughly how much it cost to paint a silver car into a black matt, but just the outside (meaning without the inside of the doors, boot, engine bay)

ive been quoted $6000 cash in hand (without receipt) :blink:

sounds a bit expensive ... do you guys know how much i should be expecting for that kind of job?

thats what i have at the moment:

Repaint will range from $3k to $6k+. It depends on the paint you choose and is it custom? For $6k, i assume that is custom colour(very special, lotsaa "ingredient") and a very proper job. $6k should have receipt too, w/o it should be less.

can you tell us, what paint did u actually ask for? Just normal black with metalic? then i will cost u around $3.5k w/o receipt. If it is a midnight purple, baby blue, or rusty sh!t, then the price start to increase.

Mate, the pic looks more like satin black to me. 6k is a joke. I just bought 4L primer, reducer, hardener and 4L of satin black for $370 in 2pack. It doesnt require clear coat which will save them/you a heap of work painting, sanding, buffing. Just for outside, I wouldnt pay more than 2k for that kind of job. Remember the more you do yourself, the cheaper it will be. Check with the place first as some get funny about you doing prep work and they can alsways blame you if it turns out crap. Pulling panels off ect is easy though and helps out a bit.

Good luck with it. Honestly though, the silver looks great. If my paint looked that good, I wouldnt have even wasted $370 on paint.

It cost me to respray a holden hr $1500 for a no reciept cash job painted Blue and when i had a commodore wagon cost $5000 but that was at a spraypainter with reciept and included installing and painting of a vx clubsport bodykit as well. Look around you can do better especially in the city

6k with no receipt is way too much for any kind of black and silver, unless your getting some pearl.

i had a mate that got candy apple red for just over 4k with no receipts but his car is alot smaller, an swift gti.

ive asked another panel beater this morning, he told me he cant do only the outside of the car, with him its a full job or nothing and he quoted me $10K for a full paint job !!! (including inside the doors, boots)

sounds still very expensive.

6Ks is way tooo much...3.5ks is perhaps the average price esp in matt black...i would talk to a local body shop repairer...coz they would be more genuine!
