maybe if you go back the same color you might stay under 2 grand...

a good paint job will run you about 3k, if you have any customizations done...

this should take care of everything though, doors, door jambs, and all that other good stuff that usually doesn't get done...

i was thinking more like 4-5 grand to get a decent paint job (including door jambs, etc).

it probably would if you wanted something really good...i don't mean like wicked customized though...something simple like ghost flames or some small pinstripes and whatnot...


3k definitely won't get you HOK paint...you'll prolly be able to get a decent shot of PPG for 3 grand and a couple shots of clear...and i doubt they'll put it in the oven to harden...more than likely will set out and air dry..

yeah i wasn't talking about anything custom at all.. ive heard a few different quotes, and for just a basic paint job for our trucks, the numbers seemed to be around 4-5 for an everyday paint job.. i got an estimate for my truck to be painted half way down the body on the sides and it was near 3 grand.. i wonder if its one of those things that has a different price range in different areas of the country, like window tint. i know people pay out the *** up here for tint, so it wouldnt suprise me if we're also paying more for paint, lol.

mine to have done JUST the silver inlay was $2000. i didnt see any reason to have the red redone because it still looks like new.

a good perfessional paint job will cost anywere between $2000 to $4000 depending on what you have done, like keeping the same color will be cheaper.

do the pinstripes yourself. it is really easy and the 3M pinstriping tape is cheap.

damn!! you could have driven it to texas and had my buddy do it and gone back for less. back on topic though it depends where you are at, what you know, and who you know. if you want it stripped down and some minor dings done i would say 2k is reasonable as long as you dont need jambs and underhood or between cab/bed redone.

driven to texas doubtfull since i am getting 12 mpg and it wont run worth a **** on 87 gas, it would have cost me a $1000 one way. i could've got it done cheaper but i wanted it done right. it was sprayed 3 times + a clear, then the pinstriping, then putting it all back together. they had to take off the headlights, grill, bumpers, fender flares, emblems, door handles, lock sets, inner finders, tailgate, taillights, and then mask everything else off.

since your truck is a 97 i say sand it back down to bare metal and take it to them to have them paint i got a quote for getting all the damage on my bed fixed and back in black primer for 900 bucks so it just depends on what area ur in

I paid $500 for my first truck to be painted but that was 10 years ago now. You might be better off calling local body shops and seeing what they can quote you.

is there clearcoat on ur paint? if so u can LIGHTLY wet sand and buff the paint. it may not be 100% like new but it certainly be better.

i spent about $3200 to have my truck repainted, a bedside replace, fender replace and a few trim items replaced. this was on a fullsize truck, the bed was taken off, ALL the trim and windows were taken out (besides windshield) and this was for expensive paint (bout 1/3 was for paint) and it was all double or triple stage paint. then the body was wet sanded, cut and buffed. so shop around!

red is the most expensive color paint. I paid 1200 at good ole earl scheib to get my stang repainted and 4 coats of ppg clear on the 4th time they got it right but i wouldnt recommend them whatsoever. Good paintjob with PPG basecoat/clear will most likely run you about 2500-3500?? Depends on where you go check out craigslist.com and i bet youll find someone willing to do it on the side.
