If you want it done nicely an the correct way, probably more then you're willing to spend

Also, you're better off asking your local body shop as opposed to the internet

If there was enough time in the day that'd be cool. But there isn't so asking a local shop dealer when there shop is closed would be a waste of gas.

24 hours in a day isn't enough time to go talk to a body shop for 5 minutes?

You need to ask your local shop like other have suggested.

1. depends on paint code you want
2. depends on cost of paint for specific color.
3. depends on the amount/coats of paint
4. depends on $/hr your shop charges.

if you cant understand what you quoted then you wont be able to understand why a paint job cost so much....so buy 32 cans of plasti-dip and call it done.

Your price is going to depend on quite a few things as was mentioned earlier.
The price will sky rocket if they are fixing dents as well. Plus you have to set a price point that your willing to pay. There are shops that will do it for cheap but I'm a believer in getting what you pay for.

OP, in case you didn't get your answer, the best thing you can do is visit some shops. There are too many variables. Expect to pay between $2000 and $4000 (note where the dollar signs are).
