As with anything... SMIT's reply was a pretty accurate answer in terms of covering average prices though, and he did state average. As an approximate range, it was a good response.Yeah but it could also be more or less in labour etc at different places. You go somewhere ****, they might charge you **** all, go somewhere with a good rep for good work, you will pay alot more.
$5000 average for a color change, $3000 for a repaint. $5000-10000 for a custom color depending on (metal flake, pearl etc.)
Again as you just repeated your last point, as with anything lol Prices vary, especially with trades and yes you get what you pay for. Plenty of people ask re: prices on the forum, and thats because some people just want a ball park figure and will go from there. Im sure if he was ready to get the car painted right now he'd probably be in the process of ringing up for quotes, but some people just want a figure for many reasons, such as assessing the viability of the idea or what sort of sum they should have sitting in their bank account before they start bothering to go around attempting to organise it.Yeah but there are plenty of **** panel beaters out there who charge less and do crap work. Then there are ok panel beaters who charge average prices then ripper panel beaters who charge more. You get what you pay for.
I wouldn't rely on any "average" prices someone gave me on a forum, i'd rely on written quotes from different panel shops. And yeah, you can colour change in 2 ways. The **** way: closed door respray. The best way: have it stripped right down to shell and painted completely. Then the VE may cost more due to more electrics so putting it all back together might be a real downright prick.
