Default Cost for a full respray?

HI folks, another question, 90 truck cab, how much do you reckon, ball park for a half tidy full respray? Taking into account some rubbing back and treating a few spots?

yeah I kinda knew that. I know one place has a "guy" who does an acceptable job for 250 but thats only if you are buying the landy from the yard there. Its just an idea....

it was 30 quid an hour for labour 4 years back when i was sprayin so im geussing its more now, plus cost of materials...your lookin around the 500 quid mark. used to take me a day to prep one, and half the next day to paint it. you will save yourself a shit load having a bash yourself, just need a half decent compressor and a roof over you. your paying for ovens and all sorts at garages, and you dont need them

I would set aside a couple of days to prep it, if you go at it hammer and tong it's likely to be a mess. Take the time with the masking up coz it makes so much difference to the finish.

It's years since I painted and I did my merc the other day and fook it's hard work without all the power tools we had then.

Dont buy the paint until you have satisfied yourself that its ready, coz if the paint is laying there its so much of a temptation to say, that will do it, paint it and be dissapointed.

I dont like these telly things where they renovate stuff, that one where the squad of half wits went around doing steam engines and so on. They did a fire engine and it looked good on the program but it was a fookin mess.

You can hire the kit or buy a compressor for about 80 quid that will do the job, a spray gun will cost about 60 quid. A compressor is a great tool, get an air gun and a ratchet and it makes all the jobs on yer motor so much easier.

we (deeside 4x4) can do any respray work,a basic external prep and respray in 2k or water based wolud start at around 1500 including baking in our oven.or you can reduce costs by doing some of the prep work yourself.we need to see the vehicles to quote properly though.

I got some pretty good results with a tin of cellulose paint from paddocks and a roller. Gave it 3 coats with a rubdown with wet & dry between coats, took 1 & a half days to finish.

For what you pay a sprayer, you could buy all the equipment, do it yourself and then do any more resprays for just the paint. One word of warning, get the motor in the garage/shed and hire/buy yourself a heater. Spraying a damp cold motor will end in tears.

I was thinking of giving the 90 a respray in the spring, too bloody cold to be messing about out there now.

My plan is to use one of those 6m x 3m gazebo type garage affairs they sell on eBay for 150 and lining the inside with that thin plastic decorating sheeting so I can sell it on afterwards not covered in paint, if I seal it up and heat it I'd think it'd make a pretty good spray booth

proper job no change from 1000+proberly twice that..all the money is in the preping..

go and do yourself..dont rush it,lots of coats,light first,then a couple of coats medium,then to finish a slighty heavier coat..last one is the one that may run,thats where the skill comes in...timing important too,each coat must not dry,yet must not be too wet before next..expect job to take twice as long as you thought,

practise makes perfect,its fun too,and once its dry,flatened down..(you will need a good mop) and you at landy show being smug showing it off, one can be proud that you did it yourself!..

so..cost..rubing down bits,paper,discs etc 20 +100 for d.a.
primer and paint hardener etc..100+..can use b&q shite for a tenna for a crap job if you wish!
compressor...hire?? or borrow? ?
gun..as much as you can afford..but 50 gets you a half ok one..mop 50+

quite a saving over 1000-2000!!
