probably about $200
If you do it yourself you can get it done for about $50

you can do it yourself and it will come out just as good as a pro if you take your time and follow instructions.

Good question. I am considering painting mine, but better than stock and like a brand new car's paint. I could probably get the same results myself, but working 70+ hours now doesn't help for free time.
I haven't seen many self paint jobs that I would say to myself, that looks great. I figure get it sprayed professionally. It shouldn't cost that much either or go the distance with real carbon fibre.

it does take a while ive been doing it myself and every other week i see something i did wrong but, i love the satisfaction level just doing it myself versus paying 200 dollars for painting. shit i could get a painter to do my whole living room for that much

IxkissablexI and andrews:
It was $250 for the entire dash + doors + etc..
My interior was entirely gray before, so I had to get everything painted.

RookieGTS & JSPITZ:
I wouldve paid even more if I had to, and I do see a diference between my interior and the ones you did by yourselves, plus this price includes paint made by Lotus ( for the Elise) and not cheap spray cans you can get anywhere.. so I dont think I got ripped.


Kevin:
thanks for the comments ... yours is pretty nice as well thumbsup
