I have got all my body work done at East coast Auto Body and they said about 1200 for my ZX3, but I also asked a guy that does local painting for the Air force base here and he said about 8-900...so it really depends on who you go to, look at some the work they do so you know your making the best choice.

i work at a body shop and paint is expensive and especially with the new waterbornes coming in they arent necessarily more expensive but if you have a shitty enamel paint job on your car your car will most likely need to be stripped and just omg dont even wanna think bout it but everyone has giving you good advice but a typical paint job will cost around 3 grand not 1200 unless its going through someone you know or if your gonna get some shitty place to do your car take your time like you had said look around if you go somewhere ask them how the run things and such because some places dont even take your car apart they just tape around everything boom done and you dont want that you want the entire car overhauled then prepped and so on and then assembled when its painted and then cut and rubbed gotta do some research my friend good luck

I have just got my car back from just a respray and it cost 2000 but that was fitting a kit also. And that wasn`t doing everywhere like you would do in a colour change. A spray job, even if its only a respray is big money, big effort and big time. So I got my foci for 2500 and paid 3000 on a kit and respray. You do the math.
