You get what you pay for.

When I was looking at getting my 2000 painted, I was expecting to pay anywhere from $2,500-$3,500 for a real good paint job. I just couldn't find anyone around here that I trusted to do it.

Edit: After seeing what the other guys said, no wonder I couldn't find anyone that would do a GOOD paint job for what I was expecting.

depends on your definition of good and who you take it to. I have seen some nice paint work for cheap and I have seen expensive paint that looked like uber shit.

I had 15k paint job on my truck, and an 8k on one of my cars both were very nice. I had a 600 on one car and it was good for a daily driver but no show car. A friend has a fox with about 4500 in paint and its a very nice paint job.

anywhere from 2000 to 5000 on up. lots of work involved, materials ain't cheap, etc...if you can do some of the prep work yourself you can save a bunch of $

Dang, I was hoping to stay in the $2k range. $7.5K I could buy myself another Mustang...
I guess my definition of good would be what these cars came out of the factory with. I really like the color on my car, just that someone in my school's parking lot scraped my front bumper backing out of a spot and now I have a 6 inch long stripe that looks like absolute shit

You are going to see all kinds of numbers.

What is important is that you do your research. Make sure the place you go knows what they are doing. Just because they are expensive doesn't mean they are good. Especially when it comes to body shops. I know some places here in town that charge an arm and a leg, and they suck! Don't count out the smaller shops.

How bad is your paint? You might be able to have it buffed and achieve what you are looking for. Post some pics of the scratch.

The scratch is pretty deep, you can see the primer and the surface of the bumper, next to it the paint is starting to shrivel. The only places on my car that really needs work are the bumpers. I thought about getting a Saleen replica body kit and just have those color matched. It just bugs me every time I have to look at the front end of my car and see the scratch there.

i did all my prep-work on my 04 SRT-4, then paid someone 1500$ to paint it... if you take your time on it, it will more than likely turn out better than the shops prep work... here goes my skittle...also, it probably could use a good buff job and it will look fine...or just get it re-cleared...

I was just going to say what Montana said. I would do you own prep work. I did the same for my my 96 Z28. I bought it smashed and fixed it.
