paint job - OUCH!!!
I took my car in yesterday for an estimate to get it painted, and the guy giving the estimate said it would be $6000 - $8000!!! It's a localy owned shop which I chose because it's close to home and has a good reputation, but that seems WAY too high for what I'm looking for.
Any comments on what a decent paint job should cost? I admit there's a few extras like prepping the fiberglass hood and some fender alignment, but I'm just looking for some good paint to cover what I think of as a street/strip car.
