Re: How much is a paint job on a CJ7? Also a motor que
I'm not certain this will help with your paint question but use it as a starting point. I took my cj7 to Maaco paint in Las Vegas, a kind of quicky paint company, surely not a high end place. I wasn't going to change colors so I didn't have your issues with the interior. Basic paint job, mid level quality was $400.00, remove all decals on the hood, fenders $100.00, paint the hardtop a different color from the body color $100.00. Doors don't match so to do the inside of the doors to match the existing interior $100.00, need a bunch of little holes in the body filled in (welded not bondo) $50.00, minor body work, $150. There you have it, it would be nearly a $1,000 bill. Then I went to a body shop here in small town Arizona and he gave me a price of $1,200 to do nearly the same job with probably a little bit better quality paint. So now the Jeep sits, stock fading paint. I don't know what I expected to pay but I'll have to rethink having this done. Hope this helps. John- oh, as to speed, I have 31's and the Jeep can easily get to 70 though I rarely will have the desire to drive it that fast.
