keep in mind you get what you pay for

i consider $1500 would be a very ordinary job

it costs approximately $500 just to buy the paint & you should get it done in 2 pack

Perfection on Adison Rd do a good job.
They painted the green S15, OH BOY.

I agree, a good paint job is nothing to be tight with.

Paid about 9k for mine ...

But that was back to bare metal, and needed some little bits here and there .. In the end, a top knotch job ... But Sydney tends to charge a lot more for stuff... :cry:

i resprayed my cc myself. Cost me around 1000 all up, after i brought the appropriate tools, puttys, paints, fillers, thinners, etc

the trick is to achieve a good paint job u need to not cut any corners. a good paint job is 90% prep work and 10% painting. it turned out really well. if ur thinking about a home job ill give u some pointers etc.

if u want me 2 post some pics ill put some up once im back in Adelaide( 2 weeks)
built for corners not families ayy mr commodore ;-p

for a realistic price coming from a panel beater.. unless you rub it back and get the dents out urself and bog it and prime it.. you will be looking at 6-8 grand upwards...

thats of coarse if you want 2pack thatd be around the 8 grand mark for a full respray... but if they do a dodgy job dont take crap from them.. look for celulite and little grit marks which happens when the filters arent clean in the bakeing room... so have a good look over it.. ive seen some terible jobs done which they ran out of paint halfway through and then it was a different colour on the other panels... if you want quality pay maximum price ...

just my 2 cents
turbo lag is just a gentelmans way for a head start... :) LANCERKID///

I had mine done not too long ago ...

I was over the prices people where charging in Sydney, so ended up going down past my second home ... Woolongong...

My CC was in pretty bad shape ... Check out my cardomain site to see the work that had to be done... www.cardomain.com/id/rock_it

Cost me 8.5k to have the car taken back to bare metal and resprayed in the Evo X blue ... Mind due this was the cash price.. If anyone wants to know the name of the shop just PM me ... He has also done smash repairs on my FTO, and their work is just amazing...

Wow you guys have paid a lot for your resprays.

Need a friend that's a professional spraypainter, he's doing mine for the cost of the paint.

Obviously I'll be helping/doing most of the prep work.
