At Jireh Customs paint is what we do. If everything is done and all we have to do it paint it, your looking at about $800-900 for the bumper, hood and a fender.

Keep in mind you really do get what you pay for when it comes to paint. And it's one of those things that if not done correctly, you've spent 80% as much to get a job 50% as good.

He painted my 67 and I had no problems with paint quality. I bought the paint and clear I wanted to use and let him spray it.

I've seen hit or miss work done by almost everyone that is on the lower side of estimates. There's a lot of great body shops/painters in town, but they're usually not the cheapest. Everyone's mileage may vary on this, but personally I won't risk getting a 50% job for 80% the cost.

I second this recommendation. Not to cut any business out of a local shop, but Yager does great work as well as having very fair pricing due to not having a full on business/overhead/etc!

I second Samir you pay for what you get on paint and body work for sure.

I can give you a firmer estimate if/when I see the job and it is a little high for a reason. I recently had a guy with a 71 Chevelle with a fresh LS1 transplant ask for a quote. I told him a same color (custom color) repaint with some minor body work would be $2300. Same color being no trunk door or hood jams being repainted. Instead he goes with a local "economy" shop and gets the $550 special with a color change to white. WOW!! His new LS1 is also white with over spray as well as all hoses, weather stripping and anything else that should have been taped or masked off. While his car will everyone who sees it is

I am not the cheapest guy around. There is a reason for that. People driving a $30,000 car with a $300 paint repair job, well I just can't figure that out.

Me neither. It's an investment like any other--exhaust, cams, etc. But it's the only one that will cost you more to do over than any other thing.

2300 for a same color job is dirt cheap still haha. My buddy had his Neon painted probably 6 or more years ago same color with a light pearl dusting and got hit for 4g's. His car did and still does look like a show car.

That was just a sand and repaint with a funky pinkish red metallic. Honestly I'm glad he changed it, but like I said that 2300 was no jams only outer surface. If you want jams and the works, well it is going to be considerably higher. When doing jams and such we remove everything in the jams that we can and take great care to properly mask off the things that we cant. Also, most jam jobs we will remove the doors to do it right.

This was outside only, no jambs. It's really just the price you have to pay for a great job in Orlando. Sad, but his car is the identical color of the newer Tahoes; the green/blue pearl job. Makes you wonder.

I realize that I am going to be in need of a total respray. I won't need the engine bay and door jams painted. I own a 2005 nissan altima se-r that is black with no flake and no pearl. I just had Israel from tru-facts detail it and the oxidation from the cheap nissan original paint job has crept onto the hood and roof and were unable to be corrected. Am I looking at around he same price or is it something that you would need to see? I really just need a ball park.

Your car came out very good Quincy just those places on the hood where the oxidation had degraded the clear coat completely on a few parts. With a more in depth correction process the roof would even out pretty nicely with only a few parts left over.

yeah, but I just kind of want to start with a clean slate, have you do your thing to it, and know that anything that happens to it was done by me and not the previous owner, ya know?

Yea I understand completely whenever you get the new paint job done hit me up and I can get you set up with a good sealant to help protect it from the elements and make it harder for the elements to get to it this next time around to keep it looking new.

Though, along the same principle. Expensive is not always quality! IMO decisions should be based on results rather than price. I have seen Jirehs work they post on here and it seems to be great work. At the same time I have seen Yagers work on HSV and in person and its great work as well. Ultimatly its a decision making process. You have to weigh all the options.

I have friends who have cars in which their dad painted their cars in his garage when we were in High School. Those still to this day look top notch and could compare to most brand new paint jobs. Just Sayin...lol
