as the title says, im getting some paint flaking off in areas of my truck and im thinking of having it repainted. my plan is to have it completely stripped and primed from a fresh start so that i have no chance of the old paint under it flaking and causing an even bigger mess down the road.

if you have had it repainted/stripped how much did it run you?

im gonna have it redone in the factory white color so i don't need to worry much on door jams and under the hood/bedliner. maybe some blue pearl added to the paint to make it slightly different than stock, but still a white base.

with my truck being white, the large patch of grey primer hanging out on my fender looks like shit. it's doing it on the passenger side bed rail also but i just cleaned it real good and hit it with some white rattle can paint and nobody can tell. but this patch on my front fender is HUGE and although i can rattle it, its gonna be noticeable. i'm about to move across country to Norfolk, Va next week so once i get there i think im gonna hit up a body shop and get it repainted. any ideas on cost of having out trucks repainted/stripped?

so far its just the front fender that im concerned about. $5K is a little on the high side of a standard paint job, but if it includes a good bit of prep work i can see it being a reasonable estimate. once i get to Va ill be going around getting estimates on just fender repaint and whole truck repaint. if i can find a place for 2K or so im gonna have the whole truck stripped and sprayed.

Just a tip, check craigslist ads. In my town alone two licensed professional painters have ads for cheap work. One guy got laid off by a dealer and now works out of his own shop. I got mine painted for dirt cheap by a well respected painter not just because he lives down the road but because he said work's been slow for him so he lowers prices to get more people in. Just a tip before you consider 3-5k quotes.
great idea. thanks!! ill do just that once i get moved :mullet:
