It depends on if your car has body dammage that needs to be repaired, if it does that will up the estimate...if you just want someone to shoot a paint job over the paint you already have try Macco they do paint jobs for about 500.00, any where else would probably run you at least 1,200.00, if you want it done right and to last long take it in for an estimate, most places give free estimates.go to MAACO Auto Paint & Auto Body Repair Service and put in ur zip hope this helps~

i own a body/customizing shop up here in wi. you get what you pay for. if you are changing the color it going to be more than 1200. you need to paint the door jambs and under the hood and trunk, otherwise it'll look botched. if you like the car, and plan to keep it; go for it. being a 94 i'd think it would almost be cheaper to buy a black one though. you will easily have close to 100 hours in doing the job. the doors, hood and trunklid will need to be pulled off to paint them, any hood insulator or trim on the underside of the trunk must be pulled off. the door handles need to be removed which involves stripping the hardware inside the doors off. the bumpers need to be pulled off so you can paint the bottom side of them. you can't spray them on the car and expect a quality job. then what about the engine compartment? to paint it correctly the engine and tranny need to be pulled. the light need to be removed. what about the glass? its hard to sand next to glass or any moldings for that fact, and if its not scuffed well your paint will peel-guaranteed.I do this type of work on classic cars will bad colors. a 70 chevelle looks better red than the ugly chocolate brown it origionally came with. if you know what you are getting into and understand what needs to be done, you can easily justify the costs.the question is if the cost are greater than the value of the car-

About 500-700 for a decent paint job with clear coat.
