I have a '50 Jeepster VJ. The car was restored in 1985 and it needs a paint job badly. The paint has alligatored and is chipped. There is no body work necessary. I found a good painter near Tucson where I live and he wants $6500 for the exterior. Car is two toned. Does that sound like a fair price? I'm a little out of touch with what the going rate is for a good paint job.

For a good painter using quality materials thats not bad, since it is a small vehicle but the old paint will have to be taken off, plus the two-tone color scheme. Its not uncommon for something like that to cost $10,000 on an average size car especially if the shop does all the teardown and re-assembly, polishing, and takes time to be sure its all straight. Did this include doing anything to the underside of the body? If so, its a great price. If not, its still a good price in my opinion.

Sometimes, wise collision repair shops will overprice their estimates because older vehicles always require unforeseeable added labor, and a lot of folks think that an initial estimate is an final invoice!

Your right Matt my buddie did a friends of his car. The paint was $2,000 a gallon. They used 2 gallons. and of course if they need it for further anythings if he needs it. So by the time he is done $8,500 to $10,000 is not out of the question. I've done painting back in the day. It still cost a $1,000 in the 70's&80's.

Here it goes

As days to weeks pass by, motor vehicles participate in an integral component within the life involving so many people. Virtually everyday, they employ cars and trucks to accomplish their particular a variety of requirements particularly in terms of traveling. Nevertheless, upon awakening several morning, they could come across these kind of treasured issues tremendously afflicted with wear-and-tear due to selected actual components such as weather conditions improvements, random lumps, and scrapes. To bring back the beauty and gleam involving cars and trucks, a fairly easy auto piece of art course of action could perform the job.


The most crucial materials necessary in this straightforward auto piece of art course of action are generally sandpaper, cleaning soap and drinking water, and african american teeth enamel colour. Additionally, the polish stripper as well as almost any degreaser is also necessary to gain that excellent auto piece of art end result. Entire body putty, cable, and apparent fur colour also serve particular reasons, so perform masking recorded argument as well as a colour primer. Before beginning, a adequate level of plastic is essential to cover all the house windows on the auto. Finally, the urethane-based colour of an desired coloration is also needed for that all-important final finish.

5. Use the plastic to safeguard your house windows coming from receiving one of the colour. A masking recorded argument is plenty to hold your plastic constantly in place. Pertaining to amounts on the auto that would need not any piece of art, protect these people at the same time to safeguard on the colour.


6. If you can find pockets as well as uneven types of surface, just employ several putty in order to degree these people out and about and produce a smooth seem through out.


7. Wait around until the putty dries off totally, and prepare for the particular piece of art step.



Your Piece of art Cycle:


1. All things considered your formulations, it is today time for you to basically colour the car through packing your primer into the colour sprayer, and then apply all this around the surface of the automobile. Soon after employ, clean your sprayer adequately within preparing for your second a higher level finish. Wait around long until the area totally dries off just before carrying on to the next step.

Clean up your sprayer yet again following employ subsequently wait around long for your colour in order to dried off totally.

I was at a commercial business foreclosure auction several years ago. When they got to the paint booth, the auctioneer told the crowd that the bank would have to agree to the selling price before it was considered sold. Paint Protection Car
