    I have a Chevy Lumina.
    It's Real Light Sky Blue Right now.
    I want to Paint it Black. Then get some Chrome Trim on it.

    How much does a paint job cost on Average???
    then how much does the Chrome Trim cost???

    Someone let me know.
    Does' it chip, and look fucked up if I go from Light blue to All Black?

    First off let me tell you that chrome is pretty expensive. So you might want chrome only the things you really need.

    But, check this site out. www.alsacorp.com under (paint & additives) and look under the chrome paint. It isnt real chrome but its basically the same and much cheaper.


    As for the Black paint. Im guessing roughly about one hundred (something) a gallon. Metallic will be more of course. But check it out.

    Sorry about the rough estimate, it goes for between 50-70 dollars a quart. So 4 quarts in a gallon you can do the math :)

    If you want the engine bay done, that'll cost about a grand just to pull the engine and put it back in...

    its expensive, theres enough shit to do.

    make sure u ask around for prices. going to a cheap place like meeko isnt recommended either (yes people actually go there)

    my moms bf used to be a professional auto body painter (porsche, benz, bmw, what have you) cept those were like 5-15k paint jobs, nice though. Just make sure you pick a place where the quality of work is good.

    And the paint wouldnt chip if you went from light blue to black, because the whole thing would be sanded down, if such a place existed where full prep didnt exist then they should burn in hell. oh yeah meeko, burn them.

    when it comes to car work its ALWAYS cheaper to do it yourself... Paint gun + Air compressor + Shitloads of paints + Classes to learn to paint + Misc supplies = 1500$ give or take a few hundred... at least when you learn it.. you can paint cars forever :p

    u could go to maaco.....

    they painted my 66 buick deluxe special.....cost me 1400 because of body work.....but to be honest, they did a good job........

    they be havin them cheap 250 specials over there....and NO u wont get no showroom type shit, BUT.........if u maintain it correctly, the paint job can actually look BETTER.....

    alotta cats nick-pick the paint jobs, lookin in corners and shit, fuck all that, as long as the bitch look CLEAN and i can turn some heads, i'm happy, nahmean.............i'm sure it will look better than it did b4

    but its good to get in good wit an independant car expert, i kno one thats gonna completely strip down and re-paint my 89' crown vic for barely 300 dollars........
