How much is it to change the colour of a carWatch
- Study Helper
Cheap jobs are cheap because they are cheap.
Taken from some re-spray websites:
For a small car (VW Beetle/Mini etc.) Expect to pay £1700 - £2000+ for labour (bodywork in good condition, no rust or dents etc.) PLUS around £300 per litre of paint ( 3 - 4 litres needed). Total cost perhaps £3000+ VAT for a reasonable job.
Depends on the quality of the job.
You can do it yourself with a gallon of thinners, a couple of newspapers and half a douzen rattle cans for less than 50 quid.
Or you can have the car stripped to a shell, blasted and painted to a concours standard for circa 15k
... and a load of options in the middle!
