Paint Job $$$ - Need Input
 
Yo guys, quick survey/question:

For anyone who has had their Jeep or other similar size SUV painted, what did you get quoted at or pay? Is $3k fair?

Id like some comparable data so when I go get some quotes I know what Im dealing with. Ideally ID like to fix body damage up and get it in primer and then block it so its almost ready for paint when they get it.

$3k seems low, does the place do quality work? i have seen were it has cost $7k to $10k for an suv to be repainted

Thats a fair price. 3-4k depending on paint color

7k-10 is way out there.
Thats to paint a mercedes.

Where's your damage?

I had someone back up into me. They're going to repaint the side of my jeep.

repainting it would be overkill if it's coming out of your pocket.

A good shop wouldnt want an inexperienced novice to touch it. It would mean more work.for them.

This is a friend of mine who has paint shop so he'd paint it however I asked him. Anyway, Ive already painted the front end (bumper/2 fenders) once already from an accident but I dont think I could tackle the whole Jeep, too much room for error and I dont have good environment to spray it in for good results, much rather a booth :/

I have damage on rear quarters, front fender/bumper and some roof issues which is why Im looking to have the whole thing done. Just wondered what people were getting charged but seeing as Im just having it sprayed only, probably not right place to ask. Thanks anyway guys.

I would just ask the friend....its gonna vary from city to city...state to state. NY would be much more expensive than say KY.

It depends if your changing the overall color, what color you want, (Reds and Red Pearls and Kandys ) are the most expensive, but at least in my area, I charge 6K and up.
