Calling all Pro Painters: Price Question...
I painted my car last year with JD Blitz Black but want a pro painter to paint it this time. If I supplied the JD paint what type of cost am I looking at to repaint my car. Here are the things I would want:

All trim holes welded up

Roughly 4 hours of light body work

Door Jams, Trunk jam and Trunk Lid painted

Under the hood painted

And here is a short video of the car 66 Impala

Are you asking for repainting the same car that you painted last time?
Because if you are, I would want to strip it before painting it again
and that's a big affect on the total price.
(Bondoking would do it really cheap)

BTW, nice video, but where are the girls??
A car like that needs some girls around it, right? :thumbup:

Nice Video, but you need to do suspension work. That thing can't seem to decide how it wants to sit. LOL

As for supplying the paint, I don't know any professional painters that will allow you to supply the paint. Also as Jim said, if you already painted it, it probably should be stripped before painting it again. also what you described involves alot of work. The hood, deck lid, and doors would need to come off. You said under the hood, but didn't specify weather it was the underside of the hood, or the engine compartment.

The cost would depend on the labor rate in your area, and the normal going price for a paint job.

thanks guys
I know I am asking questions that have a lot of variables. And I honestly forgot about the striping of old paint. What would a average paint strip cost?
