How Much does it Cost to Paint a Car?

The new car paint or coat completely transforms the vehicle`s appearance. Every time you need to change the color or renew the current one, you face the same question: How much does it cost to paint a car? Well, it depends on what you exactly want: complete transformation, whole car painting in the same color, spot painting, or color protection.

How Much does it Cost to Paint a Car

Entire Car Paint Job Prices

Usually people want a transformation if the car is damaged or the owner wants to drive an eye-catcher instead of a second hand vehicle. Sometimes the reason to get your car completely painted is that you want to sell it. This is the easiest way of tuning your car and it could be a cost-effective decision

The price to get your car painted depends on materials, labor costs, and size of the vehicle. Consider prices between 500 – 5000 $. Matte finishes, clear coats or any custom-designed patterns will be more expensive. Here is a detailed price list of basic materials needed to repaint a car.

How Much does it Cost to Paint a Mid-sized Car?

  • One gallon of primer ($80-$100)
  • One gallon of Metallic Acrylic Enamel Car Paint for 1 coat ($45)
  • One gallon clear lacquer for 1 coat – ($85)

Total price: >$220

How Much does it Cost to Paint a SUVs and Station Wagons?

  • 3 gallons of primer ($ 300 )
  • 3 gallons of Metallic Acrylic Enamel Car paint for 1 coat – ($150)
  • Two gallons clear lacquer for 1 coat – ($85)

Total price: >$ 540

Take into account that some finishes require more than one coat so consider extra costs. For example nonmetallic shades cover better the body panels than the metallic colors. Another fact to consider is that some vehicles may require specific paints and this could also affect the total costs of car painting.

Labor Costs

To provide you with a vibrant-looking car, garages will charge you between $ 400 and $3,000 for labor. These costs are determined by season, materials and size of car.

How Much is Spot Painting?

Spot painting could camouflage some panels that need repair or could accentuate the exterior of the vehicle. In fact, to blend the new and old paint is not an easy job so you have to choose experienced aftermarket specialists. The job includes masking and spray paint. Spot painting will cost between $400- $500. Also, you have to purchase spray paint cans. You will need up to 30 cans for a medium-sized car and more than 60 cans for a SUV. These materials will cost between $25 and $90.

Fancy Paint Protection – Foil Car Wrapping and Styling

Wrapping is considered an alternative to painting. This sophisticated technique individualizes the car and makes it an object of desire. It provides a complete new look to the vehicle. This design solution offers many color variations and special effects such as pearl, metallic, matte, 3D Carbon and Chrome. The ultra-thin film protects the body parts from damage.

The price of entire car wraps starts from $ 3500 at vinyl wrap studios. They offer complete services including custom designed graphics.

Some aftermarket companies use additional techniques to protect the paint, such as clear coat.
