$5000-10,000

For a different colour. You have to do the doorjams, remove engine and do the engine bay etc. It's a big job..

Changing colours isn't usually done unless you have a lot of money, a mate in the industry or it's a show car..

It might be cheaper if you do the prep work, preparing the panels. But if you need to ask for an estimate, it's probably best you leave the panel work to the professionals..

Ye got my car resprayed for $4500, same colour, no interor panels. But it was well worth it, my original paint was awful, I couldn't reckonize the car after it got resprayed, the panel beaters did a very nice job.

Owned her for 8 years and still enjoying, my future upgrade will be 4.2ltr Stoker turbo engine (next 5 yrs) as my original engine is still performing strong at 213,000k's.

I have a lease back VZ from work, dont enjoy driving it one bit!
