If the prep work was done right and it JUST needs paint, I'd say a good paintjob would be around $1000-$1500...

I paid $2500 for mine, which included dent repair, primer, paint...

Depends on paint, and body shop doing the work. The cost of materials, has gone up quite a bit. If the body shop, is a decent shop they're probably going to go over the entire car themselves. That's their signature, they're putting on your car and prep work is 90% of any paint job. If the car was prept half-ass, the paint will come out the same way, Mike.

it all depends on how much you wanna spend, a paint job can go from 500 to easily 10,000 or better. just depends on how much you wanna spend... a good quality job in my opinion shouldn't be anything less than two grand, including dent repair. Don't forget that doing a quality job requires complete disassembly of your car... The one good thing you have going for ya is its white! there's an saying i've heard in the shop i work at once or twice: "if it ain't right, paint it WHITE!!!" white doesn't show small dings and dents as easy as darker colors...

There's a LOT of shades of white, question is do you want a standard white or the one that came on the car? Then do you want lacquer, enamel, metal flake, pearlescent, candy?
