Are you planning to do it yourself r a shop do it? What kind of paint do you want to be used, what color, and do you just want it painted or is there smoothing or custom work involved?

I'm doing all of the body work but I'm taking it somewhere for the actual painting. It will be millano red or electric blue. Metal flake and clear coat would be nice.

depending on what type of paint you go with probably anywhere from $250-600. Depends alot on what they have to do, what kind of paint your going to get and the shop you go to. Not sure in your area, but those prices are about right here.

God, HK, I wish I could drive my car to your neck of the woods for a paint job. I have been told to paint my Nova would be $1500-2000 here. Unfair!!

Chevyluv, that estmant was just for an engine bay. The entire car in a shop here (average shop) would be about the same. I could do it for much less, but I'm a beast and don't have a shop :D

I paint cars at home in my leisure time and I would do the engine bay and interior for about that amount. It would just depend on how intricate the work needed to be. I know guys that pay better than $3500.00 to have their Harley tanks and fenders shot with a simple custom job.

A REAL paint job STARTS at about $3500 at a REAL body shop. :)

I live in Ofallon also, depending on what you need done I would see Mike at Mikes Corvettes in Wright City. He is great and reasonable.

Colt,
Check out a Maaco if there are any around you. Explain to them what you have and ask them if they can do it if you supply your own materials. A lot of them will agree to do it but there would be no warranty. That way you would have it sprayed in a booth and dustfree.
