Quick Paint Questions

Hi guys whatsup. I have a 2001 Ford Explorer Sport Edition in Black that needs some paint jobs done to it.

Heres my question. I was pulling out of my driveway yesterday and I turned a little hard and had intense paint damage on my left front part of the car. Where the Left front turn signal is (I have to get a new fixture, but not light) pretty much ruined the paint around that area, and all the way down to the gray bumper part (top half) and above the left front wheel. Here is my question, if I wanted to get that all painted how much would it cost (average)? I want to paint it the same color btw (black). Also the rest of my car has scratches all over and I was wondering how much it would cost (average) to paint the whole car black and back to "factory standards" or close to it. I just want a rough estimate. No need for detailed costs. Thanks for the help guys!

All over paint jobs can vary tremdously. A SUV in my shop will run closer to $5,000.00.
A show quality job think $10,000.00 to $12,000.00 or more

Any thing less than $3,000.00 would make me nervous

I had a buddy who had his s-10 painted for $1500:eek:

His old paint was nice, just an ugly color. Now it's an ugly color and a bad paint job. It looked like a 15 year old car's paint the day it was done. Since it was blue being painted over yellow, some parts of it are kinda green, too.

AKA, if you skimp on a paint job, you will regret it.

well I fully understand that.
But pissing into a fan will bring you the relief you desire, it end up making a huge mess.
Going to the auto body equilivant of a K-Mart falls into a simular catagory.

Simply put, you get what you pay for. If you are going to spend the money you might as well go the extra mile. I would rather spend a grand for something mediocure than five hundred for sh!t

About 5 years ago I had quite a bit of body work (rust holes) done on my '91 by this backyard redneck and he also repainted the lower half on my Ex, all for $400. :eek: Although the body work looked great and held up well, the paint started to bubble about 2 years later and some came off.

So yeah, professional paint jobs cost a lot, but if you're gonna do it you might as well do it right the first time.
