I am wondering how much I should expect a body shop to charge me to Prime(or adhesion promoter) and Paint to match my body color with the following things?...

-3 piece Escalade Engine Cover
-Fuse box cover and lid
-Engine Compartment hood supports or whatever they are called
-Stock Radiator Cover
-SS smooth wiper cowl

-Stock molded Dash bezel
-Center console plate that houses the tape deck, but smoothed for a 7" LCD instead
- Power Window Switch plates


I will be sanding and doing all the preping work other than using the spray gun to paint everything.


-And I am debating on whether or not to repaint my front bumper Cap and smooth the air damn... but how much did you guys pay for just these two things??

Not to sure but for mine I got the dash bezel, 3 parts of the center floor console, swith panels, overhead console, and I think that's it. But he charged me around $60-$80. Not sure exactly. And all of that is with adhesion promoter and more sanding after that. Shop around but don't get somebody who is just cheap, ya know. I got the main dash, back wall part and the 2 pillars getting painted righ now. Not to sure what it'll cost though. Shouldn't be much more though.

are you supplying the paint, or will the shop? I'd prolly say around $500 if the shop supplies the paint,reducers,hardners,thinner, etc.This if only if all that needs to be done is spraying the base/clear coat. If they have to do much prep work, the price will sky rocket!

Yes. The place I took my Roll pan and SS Cap was pretty cheap on the work since I did all the prep and sanding work and such. I have a DA sander.. and I'm going to take all this stuff there again. They are fairly linient on the prices there, and I can get a better price on all this if I can get more of an Idea of what I am looking at and work involeved.

And no, the shop is paying for the paint and supplies... You can expect to paint a car w/o expecting to buy the paint.
