It’s been a very long time since I had to look into getting any vehicle repainted. Recently purchased a 91 Chevy Shorty and it is due to go to the paint shop later this summer…..was looking at black and a 2020 Cadillac color and I asked how much more the Cadillac color would be (a metallic color) and to my surprise (and the painter’s) they were the same…..now everyone hold on …….$787.00 per gallon…..whew…..almost makes one to have it wrapped instead……..LOL
Thats about right on the price ....it cost me $3500 to have my Red van painted.
I had the White van painted back in 09 and that one was $900.
As my friend was the painter his fee was minimal ...
Now lets talk aircraft N Space paint ...lol
When did you have BIG Red painted and there had to be hardly no bodywork
That was the paint job after the accident when they replaced the whole drivers side.
So here is the thing about paints and wraps. Paint is MUCH more expensive, but if properly cared for it can last literal decades longer than a vinyl wrap. Costs are going up across the board, but auto paints have been steady climbing over the past 5 years or so, even before the inflation uptick of recent days. Lots more EPA regulations, business regulations, and higher taxes all help those costs rise. $3,000-5,000 is a pretty average cost for a full size van paint job these days depending on your location and paint.
