Costs of painting of accessories (Sydney)

Recommended Posts

Seen a few posts lately asking how much it costs to paint items such as grills, eyelids, etc.

So i made a few inquiries seeing that I was getting some things painted myself.

Grill - $30

Eyelids - $30

Sideskirts - $150 (for both)

Rear skirt - $120

Mudflaps (for all the non sportivo/ultima cars that have the ugly plastic black) - $25 each (or $100 for all 4).

Full car respray - Starting from $4000+ for normal colours, starting from $5000+ for metallic/pearlescant.

(Pending condition of car)

WHEEL REPAIR = approx $80 depending on the damage of the wheel

Prices are current, i just asked this morning. (If he asks you where you heard about him/or where you got the prices from, just tell him you got it from the asian guy who got his blue rolla's rear bumper / eyelids / grill painted - he remembers my car but not me).

Unfortunately there are no discounts for Group painting. (Hey its cheap enough already aint it?)

Even though you can drop the item off in the morning and pick it up the same afternoon, i do recommend leaving your car there as it gives them more time to match the paint properly (the first time i had my stuff painted i kinda rushed him in matching the colour so i could drive to work quickly, in the end there was a slight mismatch, but he took the time to re-paint it for me for free :D ).

In my opinion his work is top quality, you cant even tell there was ever a scratch on my rear bumper (and he will re-paint it if you're unhappy with the finish).

Thanks mate!

Its hard to find places that will do a decent job without ripping you off these days, called like 10 other places in Sydney and each one wanted $100+ for the grill and an extra $50 to fit it. (The more money we save the more mods we can put on :D )

Though i do find it rather amusing he cant remember me, but he remembers my car. :lol:

DSports also does custom paints as well if anyone is looking to get their car fully resprayed.

I find it hard to actually get in contact with him over the phone, he never picks up - probably cos hes working on the cars.

I just rock up and ask him when he's free, easiest way to go (I dont even bother arranging a time).

Earliest ive been there is 8am (and he was there), he usually knocks off work @ 5:30-6ish, so you might be able to catch him in the arvo.

Indcent, you're in a cabra arent ya, moorebank aint too far away.

anyone got any cascade blue painting to do? I got a front bar, and i'm looking to buy eyelids and side skirts soon...

Xploshun is cascade blue, he's looking for a grill i believe.

I also have cascade blue, but im getting my rear bumper painted today (stupid objects in the M5 tunnel.... make me waste another $100 :angry: )

Ok guys does anyone have any other items they are looking to buy and want painted (other than Grill/Eyelids/Side Skirts)?

Can you please post or link some piccies of the objects you want painted so i cant print them out and show it to him this arvo and get some more prices (please let me know before 3:30pm today).

Keep in mind these prices are for items that come UNPAINTED, it will cost more for stuff thats already painted and you want it repainted (as he will need to sand back and do extra stuff before painting).

He probably could take them off, paint it, then put them back on.

But like i said earlier, its probably easier if you just leave the car with him for the day, that way he can ensure the colour matches 100%. Even if the colour is slightly off one can tell.

Can they paint my body moulding things and my door handles?

hehe, you trying to make your ascent into a conquest? Shoulda just bought the conquest to begin with :P

Anyways ill ask for ya this arvo, though i dont expect it to be as cheap as the other grill / eyelids / etc as he will probably need to remove the body mouldings and door handles to paint them.

guys.. wt mudflaps are u talking about?!?? can anyone take a pic???

Those black flexible plastic thingys near the back of your wheels.... you have four of them... unless you got a side skirts then you have 2 of them.

im gonna b stuck there for like hours? nooooo

hehe i work in Liverpool, it took me 35mins to walk to Liverpool Westfields. Walk around and do some shopping :P

ooo so if i wanna repaint my rear bumper... it cost more than 100?? damn those hit and run drivers!!!!!!!

Thats per side and depending on damage, mines like a sideswipe/scrape (no filling required) about the size of ones pointing finger.

I also requested that he NOT take off my rear bumper to do this (because i dont want ppl thinking ive been rear ended).

If the scratches are on left and right hand side of the bumper its approx $200 cos its two areas he has to fix as opposed to one.

Just spoke with Dave from DSports, unfortunately there are NO discounts for GROUP PAINTS.

The cost is just to cover paint and labour, but realistically these guys are dirt cheap as it is.

@FiloRolla - I asked about the cost of paiting body moulds and door handles, you're looking at $300+ due to the labour involved (to paint the door handles they will need to take the door panel off in order to get it off), he could try to mask around it, but its gonna look crap, and if he knows its gonna look crap he aint gonna do it.

Also i asked about the rear skirt just in case anyone was wondering, that will cost approx $120 to get it

painted.

I also brought my mate along to get a quote to get his rear bumper painted (Silver accord euro), it will cost $240 to get the whole thing done (there are scratches everywhere - he blames his wife :lol: ), so just something to keep in mind if your rear bumper is all fcked up by scratches :P

Unfortunately I forgot to ask if he's open saturday.
