Old truck and low price don't go hand in hand. There is a lot of work envolved and prices for full paint jobs and body work go from $3000-6000 depending on the amount of work envolved. Sometimes the entire truck needs to be stripped down to bare metal. Not to mention on full paintjobs, the doors, interior, motor, and bed all need to be removed. It is a lot of work. I have friends that can do it. But you are not looking at a cheap thing.

That's not too bad if you only want the exterior done. And done in the same color. IE no door jams and such. I am willing to bet you could get it done in the $1500-1800 range.

Excellent written he has hit the nail on the head..I could have stated it any better. As far as Scheib's 199.00 paint job you get what you pay for.......they last approx 5 months then they fade and the paint starts falling off...

you are 110% correct about that :notworthy
they use a single stage paint for their 199.00 paint job, which means, the base and clear are mixed together.

base+clear in one coat = sun fades that "one coat"

and as far as two/three stage paint...
base coat first, then multiple clear coats = sun fades one coat of clear at a time.

takes a lot longer to fade a two/three stage paint. and if the sun does fade in a few spots on a two/three stage paint job....you can buff the remaining coats of clear to shine once again

the accrylic paint is ok base coat clear coat is better adn there really isnt more than one coat of clear unless its a show vehicle or laqeur the problems with scheibs and macco is in the prep they just use scotch brite pads to prep their vehicles. i would say 85% of a paint job is in the prep. as far a it fading as long as you keep it waxed your good for 4 to 5 years without major fading. i know all this because i have painted many cars in many different types of paint 2 stage is the best though

LOL... exactly something I would expect to come from someone in the business of auto-body work.

Not knocking on you, though. When I first saw this thread, I pictured the Earl Scheib commercial in my head. If he's going to turn around and sell the truck then Earl is the way to go.

only 1 coat of clear? you must be kidding me man. show quality would be like 5-6 coats of clear, all my paintjobs are at least 3 coats of clear. 1 coat of clear is a recipe for paint oxidizing (sp?). and if you happen to get some light scratches down the road....you cannot buff away at 1 coat of clear, it will just dull out. i paint at least 1 car a day, been doin it for 6 years. i can gaurantee 1 coat of clear (wax it however much you want) will not withstand houston's heat and sunlight for more than 1 year.
