    Paint job prices?

    Just a little question i think im in the right place here.

    Whats the average price for a decent paint job?

    Also will insurance be higher due to a colour change?

    Thanks

    Body shops tend to charge about £100 to £150 per panel IIRC.

    No idea on the insurance side of things.

    What colour you thinking of?

    I was going to get my last car resprayed, but the guy said that the full car didnt need done.

    To respray 1 wing mirror, rear bumper, spoiler, sideskirts, door handles bump strips, and then to polish the rest it would be £1200.

    Plus he gives lifetime garantees out as well and he took the full car apart to do door jambs etc.

    HTH

    As with everything you tend to get what you pay for. for a full respray on a medium size car you should be paying between £2-3K for a good job. and remember special paints will add allot more to the final cost. I was getting mine done in a candy and it was going to be 3K all in by a fairly reputable company. I allso got a guide price of £4500 from a very highly recomended company which would have been floorless!

    Most of the cheap respray jobs are just blow overs and most of the time end up in regret-so just think about wot you really want!

    Oh and check your getting the shuts done in the price aswell, ive heard some funny stories lol

    Thanks guys.

    Im actually near london/Kent my friend said he would do me a whole job if i paid for his paint and a days work, he said it would cost me around 1200 for the whole car to be spraid.

    I didnt really have a colour in mind. If i changed colour it would defo be to black, but the colour of my car atm once modded i think could look pretty good anyway, its a metallic blue, its just lighter than the polarcy blue if any of you know.

    Thanks just wanted a few rough idea's cant afford 3k for a good job yet in college lol.

    You pay for what you get cheap paint and cheap work = crap job and having to have redone properly trust me I went with some paint from a company called specialist paints and it was a nightmare ended up having a complete respray and alot more work involved so beware and look for other work they have done to get a comparison

    DO NOT USE VERY POOR QUALITY PAINT
