Fascia and side sill painting estimates

I would like to get my fascia and side sills repainted this summer. It's a B/W car so obviously it's going to be a bit more expensive due to the labor and materials required to paint the stripes, but I'm a little concerned about the amount I'm being quoted. I have gotten two estimates and they're both well north of 2 grand at $2,400 and $2,300. That's incredibly high based on what I have read from other members here who had the same work done. Maybe times have changed and that's just how much body work is these days, but I'm always concerned when I walk into a body shop that they're ripping me off. Are those estimates at all reasonable?

I think its pretty much in-line if they prep and paint it the "right" way vs. just a scuff and respray. Taking the side sills down to bare aluminum takes time and finesse to prep it correctly. The facia as well since getting everything "right" takes time and patience. Materials (PPG as OEM) is expensive. You can get generic equivalent, but for the quoted price, I'm assuming PPG.

Id quote $1500-$1800 range, depending on any spider cracking of the plastic under the paint for the bumper. Pretty much end up stripping the bumper because of rock chips, and the rockers usually need to be stripped as well because of corrosion

Thanks for the input gentlemen. I appreciate it. I don’t want to have unreasonable expectations but I also don’t want to get ripped off. Perhaps the amount that some of the other guys paid didn’t involve stripping it down to the base material.

Sounds about right. Could probably save a few bucks removing the fascia and rockers yourself but us filthy rich guys don't do that.

Right before I sold my GTS, I had the fascia and rocker panels repainted. Complete strip of both and repair of the bottom of the fascia. $600.00.

Another thing to consider is will the hood, fenders and doors match. They might be quoting you on the high side in case those panels have to be blended in. Having the fascia and sills repaired could lead to an almost full repaint. Situations like this I like my black a little more. I repainted my front fascia without a second thought.

I have read forum posts that say that you have to get the correct paint in order to match the 96-97 blue color perfectly. However, they may have been talking about just doing it per the paint code rather than more sophisticated color matching

Exactly. For one, the fascia takes a flex type paint vs the rockers that take regular paint. A $500 job is gonna maximize profit, a $2K job is gonna maximize quality.

2 years ago I had a battery blow up on me when I started the car. I just heard a bang and could not figure out what it was. Went out to eat, started when we left. Two days later saw liquid on my garage floor. blew all the sides out but it still started. The acid blew all over the rear bumper and ruined the paint.......The repair was perfect but cost me $2000.00 Thank goodness it didn't get the body.

My suggestion on color match for the GTS Blue is to pull one rocker off the car (likely the passenger side) and have them mix up a couple of slightly different batches of their proposed matches. Mask off alternating bands of base color and spray each test batch in its own band. Let them dry, then pull the masking off to view in the sunlight and find the one that is closest to perfect, or needs just a tiny shade of final adjustment before mixing the final batch.

Thanks guys. I made sure when I got both estimates that the blue on these cars varied and that I didn't just want the paint code pulled of the internet and used. They should have factored the required color matching into the estimates. I'll take that advice Dean. I appreciate it.

Was yours a B/W or other color striped car? Were you happy with how it came out/matched?

I'm also looking at having my fascia repainted/repaired (bottom of lip has crack). I don't want to half-ass the job. I'd rather have a quality job first go-around. I haven't got a quote yet... will let you guys know what I find out.

I think I paid $1,500 to have the rear tail light panel and gas cap painted black on my Gen 5 plus he removed the wheels and installed custom painted center caps that I provided... He said it was a pain in the ass to have to take extra precautions with such an expensive car. I think the same guy charged me 1,200 to respray the front fascia and sills on my Gen2 plus he removed the cats and spliced the pipes... He did a great job on both...

My wife scuffed the front bumper on her Kia Stinger... I was quoted $860 to remove it, de-trim it, respray and clear it and reinstall it... Went to another guy who quoted $680 and $550 for the same if I paid cash... She picks it up today...

The Viper is going in the shop on July 1st after my wife's Camaro goes into the same shop on June 24th. I got a deal by bringing her car to them as well after someone pulled out in front of her and crushed the front fascia, fender, and headlight. I'll post results when the car is finished.
