    It all depends on what quality you want. One a day/ Car coa type range from about 350 and up, and a good job from a body shop could be anywhere from 1500.00 up to 4-5 grand again depending on what quality you want.

    i guess i'm looking for a decent paint job since its not a show truck, it has 65k miles on it and just want it to look nice and clean on the outside. its a lariat edition so the inside is very nice just have to get the outside to match.

    Does it look better or just last longer?

    That truck looks familiar. Was it originally from the Palms Springs-Palm Desert area? I think it may have been owned by a guy that owned a tire and wheel shop out there.

    Thumbs up

    $3k for any solid color Base coat/clear coat (DuPont) solvent based paint
    $2.5k for any solid color Single stage (DuPont) solvent based paint
    includes Jams, color sand and buff, truck is disassembled for paint (lights, grill, mirrors emblems ETC.. removed not masked)
    5-7 working day turn, extra body work to be quoted
    Karma, it's worth the wait

    That's really cheap for the scope of work your describing. Depending on where the mil thickness is on the current paint, you could easily hit the 40hr mark for prep.

    i am taking the truck in on trade for my dad's truck i'm probably paying around 10k for it when its all said and done. 2005 with big v8, lifted on 35's, lariat all leather, amp power steps, intake, programmer, tonneau cover, only 65k miles. thats the only reason i am asking. i was going to throw a basic paint job on it and re-sell it. the truck bluebooks around 16k.

    a coat of feather fill ($100 material cost) and a 16" inline air sander makes quick work of prep and produces a straight finish (3 days max) unless your lazy and afraid to sweat, 1 day to paint, 1 day to color sand, 1 day to buff, leaves one day to R&R trim which better not take more than a couple of hours on a truck.

    that was a board member deal,
    normally
    $2.5k single stage
    $3.5k BC/CC
    $4.5k clear over single (show car finish) produces deep reflection
    Jams +$250, Bed+$250 and any additional body work to be quoted
    Karma, it's worth the wait
