Re: paint job ? on an 83 bronc
It all depends on what you do yourself. If you take it in and have everything done by the body shop (rust repair, bumping, prepping,painting) expect thousands. If you bump and prep yourself, you can get an economy Maaco job for about $200. If your body is straight, and you go for a better paint job, expect to pay about $1500.The body work is 90% of a paint job. I just reworked my body and painted it myself. I used Glaserit primer, Dupont Chroma Base, and clear coated it. Materials alone were over $500, not to mention all the labor involved.
