My cousin is painting it for me (he runs a shop). He's doing it for $500 plus the cost of paint/supplies/whatever else he might need. I was quoted around $3000 from a local body shop, but that was including all the other work that needs to be done (new hood, header panel, headlights, etc.) I decided to do all this myself to save some money, but its still going to run me a little over $1200 for everything, including the paint.
I know that metal flake can be added to whatever color is needed, but I wanted to see what it would look like before I just went and did it. I'm still looking for pics if anyone has any, post them up. Thanks.
