Time for the pro! Jimmy lays down the color, three to four coats, followed by flash time between coats, followed by four to five coats of clear. With quality paint prices easily in the $600 to $1,500-per-quart range, and 3-4 quarts of color and 3-4 quarts of clear, we're talking big bucks just in supplies, not to mention the labor involved in the prep and spraying. Depending on the condition of your vehicle's body, you can easily spend anywhere in the neighborhood of $8,000 to $20,000 for a quality paint job. Show-quality paint jobs with added coats can easily double that number!
