I searched but could only find costs on door handles, shaving, etc...

Anyway, whats the average cost to have a fullsize truck painted? I'm not talking the $199 Ambassador special at MAACO. I want factory like paint with clear... No body work needed other than whatever it takes to rough up the existing paint.

Original color, for a nice job around here would run you $2000. But while I was in cali my dad had some work done that would of cost maybe $300 here and it cost him $600 out there.

Yeah color change, white to charcoalish factory color. If it helps only the cab and bed need to be painted, front clip has already been done, thats what I want to match. Not cocerned with the firewall. So I guess the door jams would be the only important part.

What about if I strip the truck myself before I take it in? Save anything? I could pull the weatherstripping that they want removed and all that and then loosen up the bed so I can drive it there and take a few bolts and yank it off myeslf...
