Question by TexBW: How much should I expect to pay for a paint job?
I want to take a solid white ’99 Monte Carlo and get it painted jet black. Will the fact that it’s white now cause problems and thereby make painting it black more expensive? How much should it cost?

I live in Austin, TX if location makes any difference.

Answer by Mr. T
Expect to spend more than a grand. Painting a vehicle a dark color will show any imperfection. You may have to spend a little more on preparation in order you get the look you desire.

    expect to pay more for a darker color. If there is any body damage such as dents or rust, it will have to be fixed before the paint job is done. Also different brands of paint can cost more. If you want something metallic it will cost more..

    it depends on where you go, and what quality you get. Maaco has specials for as low as $ 229.

    do u have maaco out there they are pretty cheap but i think if your changing the color its a little more expensive plus what that guy said about black is true i just repainted my black car and you can see little imperfections but if you have maaco out there you should try them

    if your wanting it done right and with quality materials don’t be shock when a good shop gives you an estimate around 2500 or so. A good base coat clear coat black will set you back about 3 to 400 just for paint and then you’ve got sandpaper paint filler, not to mention labor to do this plus extra labor since your doing a color change it’ll have to be jammed in to look right
