Have a potential buyer for my car, but they want the car finished in Silver. For those of you with painted cars, can I ask how much you are looking at for a complete spray job ?

Cheers Dave

It can vary massively - as can the quality of the end result.

Bare Min £2k I'd say.

For a quality metallic job £3.5 - 5k ish with drat (depending on the georaphical area you are shopping)... including strip fit good quality prep etc. Paint and materials with a proper plastics system will be approx 30% of the total. (50-60 hrs at £37-£50 per hour plus paint 800-1000 plus bits n bobs of specialist bonding, h lamp covers, sidescreen etc etc .. soon adds up.

I recently got sent a YouTube link to Plastidip and ended up doing a bit more digging on it, looks quite interesting, relatively cheap and the next evolution of wrap, but spray on. Only caveat is limited colors at present.

Hi Dave,

the color ist Lamborghini Murcielago arancio atlas.
And yes, I still drive without side windows (works perfect), they are stored under the passenger seat if I need them.

It may be more cost effective to get it wrapped

There's some YouTube videos showing that you can reliquify it with a thinners, but that makes me wonder how it will hold up to gasoline spills etc. I might give it a go on the Ultima wheels as I'm tired of the polished look.
