If it were a banger car, you could sand it down, tape it off and go get an earl scheib i'll paint any car for $99.95 paint job.(boy i'm showing my age, hehe.) if you're driving a mustang, don't let me catch you with a cheapo paint job! If someplace quotes you $2k, run and don't look back.

Mustang paint jobs cost. Join our forum, interact with others, share your build, and help us strengthen this community! Spent about $800 total for 2k epoxy, 2k high build primer, basecoat and clearcoat. It has been years since any car that i've been around has been painted, so i have no idea at all what a good paintjob would cost.
It's cost some big bucks, but worth it in the end. Some basecoats will run you 800 for 1 gallon! The cheapo paint jobs end up bubbling, orange peeling and basically deteriorating after a couple years.
I have seen paint jobs run as little as $80 to as much as $25,000. Make sure they're going to remove all the trim, panels. I paid $500 for a paint job once, and it came out really good.
Heck, even if the total tab is only, oh say $8k, it's still not the majority that labor is. You can get a decent paint job at maaco or earl scheib (or any other cheap place). A good paint job on a mustang will cost between $10.000 to $12.000.
Materials are not not cheap for paint though. How much you end up paying will depend on how much of the prep work you do yourself, how much the materials cost the paint shop, etc. Maaco is a chain company originally located in north carolina with locations all across the united states that can paint your vehicle for a legitimately reasonable price.
But, it can range a higher cost up to $1,500 for a superior painting job. Best if you can go some place and have them do it all for you. I would think even if the paint cost twice as much as that $1k (give or take) per gallon, that is not the major cost of a good paint job.
Some of their higher end jobs are decent.but they obviously cost more. Paint is the first thing that gets people to look and judge your car. Make sure to do your homework and pick a reputable shop.
How much does a maaco paint job cost? The main cost is labor, but paint and other items are very expensive today. How much would a nice, complete paint job run these days?

It's all in the prep.but when you get a $400 paint job or whaever their cheap rate job is.they are going to cut corners. Besides, earl schreib has almost the same price, $900 for the same job. But, you’ll get comparatively the good quality service from maaco at around $300.

You may end up with a good paint shop gone bad and potentially end up in paint shop prison. +1 on making sure all the body work is done before you have anyone paint it. If you need a new paint job, do it right and put in some money for it.
When a car like this mclaren 675lt spider gets a $60,000 mso (mclaren special operations) paint job, you bet the value is going to shoot up as well. We painted the 66 ourselves. Like someone said above, they're all different.
Paint and body work is an art, and a really good paint guy is hard to find. The cost is $3,500 to $5,000, and the warranty is three to five years. The estimated cost is $1,200 to $2,200, and the warranty is for six months to a year (set by the paint manufacturer).
You do not have to tell your insurance company or the dmv if you paint your car a different color, folks. It also depends on the people working there. Maaco's cheap paint jobs are what is terrible.
Depends on what you want i guess. #6 · dec 3, 2018. This service provider uses an inexpensive paint to repaint your car.
