Carguy, just factor in how much work it is for you and how much you will enjoy it. If its hard work, hard on your body factor that in. On a complete color change I charge anywhere from 1000+ depending on graphic, flame, or any customized variation. Metalic colors are much harder to paint and since your doing a full color change you'll need to do doorjams and etc so it won't be an easy job. I say at least $500 for the job, more if you yourself is doing all the work. 500-700 without supplies sounds fair in my area, but everything here is priced a bit higher.
