All depends on what the body is like. Does it have a lot of dents, rust, holes from rust. Then what kind of paint you use. Labour is going to be more than the actual paint. Shouldn't be more than $4000 if the body is in good shape.

Its not all that bad. It has holes in it not from rust. The prevous owner had a light system on the outside, and took them off before he sold the truck. They are about 3/16. You can see were the sun faded the paint. Thankyou.

it depends on what kind of job you want, scuff and shoot for 600-1000, a real reputable shop that will fix and do everything right will probably charge 3-5 grand.

Where are you, I know in central FL they work really cheap figure a 80's mustang would be done dam nice for like 900, and in South FL they can be gotten for like 2500 or so for the same job. Your best bet would be to call shops in the area, try and do it in cash and tell them your color code.
