i agree with the macco thing, and spraying every where is true, with that old of a car, you will either have to get it media blasted aka sand blasted, or do a chemical peel on it or you will never be happy with it. but it just depends on how you want it as to how much it will cost8mpg said:how much you wanting to spend? That alone is going to make the decision. Maaco does $200 paint jobs and they spray the hell out of everything including you wheels, tires and windows. They dotn take enough time taping stuff off. They paint a lot of cars, so their painter should be pretty experienced. You can probably get a pro painter to do it in their garage for around $1000 and a shop to do it for $2000+
Any bodywork for the car? I have a couple 69 stangs at Hollywood Finishes and they do awesome work. Its going to depend on the bodywork and paint you want. Do you need the jambs and underhood/trunk painted as well?
Hey Slappy if you give Jesse Diaz a call and tell him Jackie or Jason with the silver civic sent ya hell help you out. heres the infoSlappy66 said:I just purchased a new 66 Mustang Coupe. It is in need of a new paint job, any ideas on what it will cost me? I want a decent job but it is going to be a solid blue color.
FST FOX said:They do do media blasting but that gets pricy just depends on the quality of a job you want ie a show car or a daily if you want to go the daily route I can do all the prep work for you then you can take to someone to spray it to save some cash
Thats about right.. For a decent shop to do quality work, paint alone will run you around $3000. Add in bodywork, and what not and thats what you will need. I have a car at Finishline in Keller and they do AMAZING work. His typical paintjobs with no body work run from $2k to $3k depending on color and how much work is involved. Bodywork and paint work everyone in the world seems to think its not to hard and want to skimp out on it. Well, after seeing what exactly goes on during all the bodywork and paint, its very very labor intensive. The great thing about a quality shop is the fact if they do enough prep and have it ready, you really wont need to buff out the paint.

to do it right, expect to spend in neighborhood of $5000 if you need minor body work. i know because i've been there in a 65
post up some pics when you get it finished!eastsidetorino said:Daily driver quality work, I would expect to spend a bout $1000 for paint alone. If you want a show car, its going to cost you $5000 or more, easily. No car that old needing paint isnt going to need body work. Most of the work that goes into painting is actually body work and prep work. I've spent 2 weeks prepping my bike, and I'm hoping to spray everything saturday. Sunday I get to clean the paint up (dont have a booth, so I know I'm going to get some trash in the clear) and hopefully assemble it sunday evening. I probably have a good 100 hours of prep work and bodywork on this bike. (and nothing on it was cracked or out of shape) just all getting everything perfectly shaped and smooth before the primer. All this work into one little bitty crotch rocket but in the end I know the paint will wow people enough to make it worth all the trouble
I have seen some really nice paint laid down without any sanding and buffing. A lot of places just dont prep teh surface enough and they lay down lots of paint then have to wetsand the hell out of it then follow up with a long buff. A show quality paint job will need sanding and buffing but if done right, you will do 25% of the sanding and buffing you would on most cars.sDun said:8mgp there is no show car quality paint job in the world that hasn't been color sanded and buffed.
I was the painter at Prestige Ford and painted out of an $80k booth and we did minor sand/buff on nearly all cars we painted(14 some days w/ 2 booths).
