April 27, 2005what is a fair price to paint my ford explorer with a excellent paint job? I have no idea if im going to get a fair price or quote.
April 27, 2005When I looked into paint for my last rig, I found that prices vary GREATLY in different parts of the country. I found that some folks could get for $12-$1500 what would cost me $55-$6000. It's an insane business from what I could gather, with different shops in different cities being able to totally dictate pricing.
Now, all that being said, it will also depend on what you are looking for. Ghost flames? Two tone? Monochrome? Are you going to do a complete job (doorjams, engine bay, etc.)?
April 27, 2005Greg really hit the nail on the head. I've asked the owner of my local shop, and complete paint jobs there start at $3k and go up. Along with options, you'll want to consider how thorough they are with preparation, and how long they'll guarantee their work. Good luck!
