    Default respray costs

    I know this has probably been posted before but I'm in need of some clarification here. What kinda costs am I looking at to respray a 205. It is Sorrento Green, so it is metallic. Ball park figure. I've read on here quotes from a couple of hundred to $7k. Anyone actually done it??

    I have been involved with about 7 pugs nows. To do it RIGHT and assuming there is little body work, about $5000 using quality products, preping, taking the glass out, doing the jambs etc. - Chris

    ps, I'm learning part time in a Smah repairs shop.

    doing the hack work (taking trim off, rubbing back) it should be $2000.- or less for a good job. Remember, prep is most important. It's quality reflects the final job.

    Can you give a cost break down?? Eg: how much for labour, paint etc...

    Well, i'm not a professional spray painter.
    Last year i repainted a car and the materials were rustconverter (wurth is best), body filler, dioxidine to wipe on bare metal before priming, primer, spray putty, undercoat, 4 l acrylic, 1l perl, 1l clear. It cost about $350.- from memory.
    Labour depends on prep. needed/wanted. Taking all trim, glass,etc off can take some hours. Most shops would just mask for cheaper jobs.
    6/7 years ago we had daughters Pulsar resprayed (change of colour) with us doing all the prep. The dodgy firm in Collingwood (Melbourne) did the paint in baked enemal. It still cost $1200.- but the paint lasted well. Basically they specialice in cheap slap on work staring at 6 or 700 dollars then. This would inlude no prep work safe for washing down and masking.
    A spraybooth job is preferable as it excludes insects and potential dust. Mist is not a problem in a home garage using a LPHV gun. Also a 20 deg plus day with low wind is needed (the garage door needs to be open for ventilation)

    I had a 2 pack baked enamal job done on my old Mazda. Had metallic paint. Awesome job for $1200 from a family friend. That was 10 years ago now I guess.

    You'd be struggling to get a half decent job with NO work on your part for under $4k assuming you wanted all trim / glass removed and not taped around.

    That's about the going rate for a 2 litre 4 cylinder size car without major damage but asusming there is some general touch up panel work required.

    If you stripped, prepped essentially did all the unskilled hackwork and paid a windscreen guy direct to remove and replace the screens (much better way of doing it and less risk of breakage) you'd probably get away with $1,500.00 - $2,000.00 for the painting.

    Good luck with it...

    I had my car resprayed same colour about 6-7 yrs ago removed minor dings on 4 panels and had full undercoat prep and the price was $1150. The guy was a qualified spray painter and had his workshop at home to keep overheads low. Paint is still on the car all ok.
    From memory the full respay was $700 at the time, still have the guys phone number.

    I've just had my Renault 15TS done. It needed panel beating almost every panel and one panel was quite serious. BUT I asked for a cheap job as the car's not worth a lot so I got a lovely cheap job and it is great for what I wanted. Perfectionists need not apply!

    It cost, all up, $2000 cash including the panel beating. It was the same colour. You can see it was a 'taped up' job but who cares, it looks the goods. and I am happy about the cost for what was done. And it was done on the North Shore of Sydney.

    I had been previously quoted between $6000 and $12,000 from specialist restorers.

    Give the painter a plug Alistair....that sounds like a good outcome for you. I'm sure other froggers will be interested in knowing where to go.
