Paint Job Cost

I will be looking to get my truck painted in the near future and just wondering how much yall all think it will cost around.

Im going back to the original black that was on it and i want to get the wheels painted to match.Also they might have to do a littlework on the hood becuz its goin to be the srt hood and fix around 2 dents

How much do yall think im looking at for a decent paint job.

Also does anyone around houston want to do it or know anyone that does a good job. If so let me know

You would be best off trying to find someome to do it as a side job. You could get it done for around $2k that way. At a shop in the neighborhood of 3

It's not cheap. I'm painting my R/T myself and I have over 500 just in paint and clear coat.

I will share an experience I had, many years back I had a 70 GS Stage 1 Buick. No rust but needed a complete repaint. From my few years of working in a body shop, I prepped the car myself and took it to the local Maaco. I worked out a deal with them to mask and shoot the car, and I supplied the paint materials. The car was done last thing on a Friday and left in the booth over night, the results were great.
I didn't have a location to shoot it my self, and their painter was quite talented, if you paint 4 to 6 cars a day you develope some skill at it.
It worked out good for me. I know it is getting harder to find shops that will do complete repaints that don't charge thousands.
Something to consider.

depends how you wish to have it done. Are they pulling all the trim? doing the door jams? inside the doors? pulling off as the body panels to do? That's what I had done on several of my cars. Everytime roughly 10k per pop. I am so anal or I would not do it at all. If things bug me I either fix it or don't use or see it! I have issues

Materials = ~$600 (one color)
Prep work = do it yourself
Painter = $500-800 to straight spray

$10k? I know guys that can spray like glass and dont charge much if you bring the vehicle prepped!

I was quoted 2500-3000 from the body shop that fixed my dak to paint my Ram. And that was a complete color change which included the door jambs, removing the bed and painting the sheet metal in the interior too.
