you know what ....that sounds just about right. $3000....
If you get a paint job for like a 1000 i guarantee you It might look ok but the quality and workmanship will be horrible..trust me I work at a body shop...I know....the things they do. .You get what you pay for ..dont ever forget that..

Yes, you are right that you get what you paid for!!!! Almost any body shop can do a good job if you pay them well!!!(unless they are real idiots!). But I think for a good paint it should be between $2-3K...and your car doesnt need that much anyways....

I Beg to differ on this subject....

My first paint job costed me $5,000... not including my body work.... for a 3 stage paint....

In the Spring I got a new bumper and had to get my whole car re-painted because my paint is un-matchable (even with the Sherwin Williams Scanner)

But I went to a body shop in Niagara Falls called Advantage and they will do full colour changes for about $1200....

He was able to match my colour perfectly by fooling around with some colours and the old paint codes...

He has painted the Infamous -Keith Losier's car (Kandy Blue TALON) and many others known to the car scene...

Up in toronto, body shops can charge anything....
