Alright, i do not possess the skills to paint my own truck, and i don't really know anyone that i trust to do it.. :think: However, i do need to get my truck repainted.. I don't need to go inside the door jams or under the hood, just strictly the exterior. high gloss black with a nice clear coat... How much money do you think i need to save to get this done..

Also, if anyone knows this, this is off topic but, my AC only comes out by my feet (needs to be fixed) and i need 2 new complete door panels.. where to buy? cost?? Thanks for your help...

paint can vary, just wanting a respray wont be that bad, but keep in mind you get what you pay for.

id say around 1500-2k would get it done, but the best bet would be just to call and get quotes..


as for parts look for a salvage yard local. probably cheaper than having them shipped from egay

find a paint shop and ask for a quote. id say off the top of my head maybe 1000 or more for a good paint job. maybe less if its the same color it is now

Where are you guys getting your cars painted, Earl Shive? There's no way you're going to get a decent repaint for $1,000. The materials alone will run that. I used to be a painter, and I'm going to spray my own and I'm figuring about $1500.00. I'd shoot for $3,000 at the lowest. :imo

just for a respray with no edging in?
Rock chips need to be feathered, door dings removed, vehicle blocked, etc. It adds up in a hurry. Let me state to do it right it would be around $3,000. Even a scuff and shoot would be 1500.00 plus though, just because of cost of materials. Single stage would be a little less, but base clear runs through some money.

Even though you might not be adept at painting, is there any reason you couldn't do the prepping yourself? This would save you a ton as this part is mostly labor. If you don't own one, rent a DA and a good air compressor. Start with 220 and then wet sand and block with 360. This is obviously over simplifying the procedure but you get the idea. This could knock over a grand off the price real easy. :)
