//nod...a lousy job is about $399 in some body shops.
they never sand off the old paint and remove any panel covers.
just mask and paint the surface. the material along worth $100-150.
a good job for complete repainting need to add at least 20-30 hours labour.
that will go to $2000-4000 easily. need to sand to bare metal and paint
hidden areas. I once got a quote from one paint guy for $1800. he offers
half price off regular shops. :o
