I think for an average run of the mill paint job your looking at around 500-700. TRDgts014, I think you either got a top notch job or ripped off. But your paint job looks clean as hell so im assuming you actually got a "1800" dollar paint job.

it did come out quite well...but the place I took it to wasn't a real bodyshop that does bodykits...they were a repair shop. They just knew how to paint it good because that is what they do. Other than that...they had no clue how to put any of it on and critisized the veilside kit being poor quality...that is because they had no clue though. So they charged 1300 for the labor and 500 for paint.

In San Diego, they charge me 560 for paint job matching my car, and 200 for labor. I though it was expensive. I guess not now... grin


Perhaps it depends on the business, if they are short on money..so they charge more.

Yep, called them, for the 00-02 front bumper to be painted/installed onto a 03 celica, they'll paint AND install for $250... $100 for just install... not bad... not bad at all. I've seen some of their work @ nc.org, and i must say, very impressed... anyways, i think i'll be headin down there sometime soon, it's about a 20 minute drive for me... thumbsup
