Yeah i was quoted $3,200 by a local houston shop to wrap my car in a single color.... Wtf? I can get an actual paint job and a turbo kit back home for that price

My 1st car/truck got a whole restoration and paint job for $1600, i even changed the color on it from 88 chevy greenish blue to a 02 gm indigo blue.

My old matrix was repainted, same color original for $1500...

Not maaco, a privately owned body shop

Ive thought about this to my focus, its an old dd beater so i really dont care. My red paint is pink on about 90% of the car. If it comes out bad i can just peal it off. If done right its just like a wrap so really whats the difference?

Um, how? That's way too cheap for a colour change, let alone a restoration too.

It was in Puerto Rico, and in 2001. I did the patching and sanding with my dad they just painted and put everything back together. They still sanded and fixed a few body problems

So does anyone have any idea how much it would cost? I'm not looking for a solid color though, that's just a waste IMO. I'm and artist and I want something I designed ON my car.

So price on a hatchback focus for full custom wrap? Every website I see for wraps do not list price. And I don't want spam mail forever to get a quote on something I'm unsure of
