thats about what i would estimate. if you are taking to a shop (thats what it sounds like), it really just depends on if they already have "040" white (that's the paint code for your color car--super white) already there or if they have to order a quart or so of it. if they already have some then your cost will be cheaper but if they have to order/obtain the paint..then obviously your cost will probably be higher..even though you won't use all of the pain you will most likely be charged for it.

I got my C-one Hood scoop painted and installed for $100, a little high but the people I had do it are very reliable and trustworthy, and I'll pay a little extra for that. thumbsup

I hit mine with a some regular Krylon semi-flat black, which is holding up very nicely, and the difference in the sheen between my high gloss carbon blue Hood and the semi-flat black scoop is awesome. Total cost with my employee discount on the spray can was $2.04 and about an hour of my time to do three coats, and wet sand in between.

Damn that's a pricey mod! tongue

BTW... you might want to add what number paper you used for the wet sand. Don't want someone to use 40 grit between coats.

Lol, true... i used 2000 grit between the semi-flet black coats. When i paint something that needs to be shiny, i don't use paper, i use 0000 grade steel wool.

It seems that there really isn't a good detailed paint guide on this site... maybe I should do one...

Who thinks I should do a paint guide? Vote away..
