a good quality job, the same color will cost $2500-3500
If you are changing colors, add another $500-1000

Why wait 90 days before Zaino? I was told after you get a car painted it needs to be waxed soon to help protect it...?

$5,000 is how much it costs to get it done right usually. It's not easy to drop that kinda cash, but necissary if your looking for a nice paint job.

Looks good Blown94SC (though i'm confused about your member name), i am really impressed! That is one of my favorite colors. I waited about 4 weeks before I polished my new paint.

Lookin nice!

My screen name is because I also have a 94 SC 5 speed...

Between my cost and the insurance ( had some damage ) cost over 4K...

The insurance only wanted to paint 60% of the car so I decided to throw down the cash to do it right. The body shop said wait 90 days and so I don't screw up my warranty I will wait.

Thaks for the kind words...

...drool...94 5-speed SC...drool...

I found a dark blue one (my favorite color baby!) in my area (chicagoland at the time) that was in pristine condition with 35,000 on it for $4,000 (this was in 1998) the guy just wanted to get rid of it because the 99 cobra was coming out. I had the cash in hand but my dad wouldn't let me buy it (i was 16). Still pissed...

How lucky are you to have two gorgeous birdies...?

I'm Drooling.....

I am getting mine painted in the spring. My neighbor has his own Body Shop. He is doing it for $500.00, Cost of Materials only.

Do you know what kind of paint and clear coat they used on your car?

The Deep Emerald Green is the best. I wouod not trade mine for anything..

Your Bird looks great.

I was quoted $3,500 including door jams and pretty much everything else, not engine bay though.

Very shiny job BlownSC. <img src=http://members.tccoa.com/kewlbird/pimp.gif>

Thats nothing. When i was 16 I was offered a Gen I RX-7 with a 302 BOSS (yes, I confirmed it) in it for $1000, but my parents didn't want me getting a v8 till I had "more driving experience"

$3500 - $5000 USD seems a bit high. I not sure how the market is south of the border so I really don't know. Forgive my ignorance.

I paid $3000 Canadian to get my car painted pearl blue. Thats about $1800.00 USD. That was with Sikkens paint and clear. Included taking off all mouldings, lights, etc....painting and re-assembling.

not bad. how has the paint held up?

A good PPG or equivilant shop will charge $4,000 to $5,000, but that includes really good prep (that's what makes the paintjob anyways) and lots of wet sanding after the paint to eliminate orange peel and the like. After a few coats of a nice clear coat, it ends up being pretty expensive.

The paint has held up really well..........especially since I don't drive the car during the winter months. I do have a nasty stone chip on my hood though:mad:
