While you didn’t say anything about the condition of the truck, the average cost for a basic paint job will run you between $1,000 to $4,000 or more. I know that’s quite a price difference, but let’s take a look at some variables when it comes to painting a vehicle:
- Rust and body work: The more prep work or repairs needed before painting, the higher the cost.
- Quality of paint: Some paints are higher-quality than others and will cost more.
- Size of truck: It’ll cost less to paint aFord Maverickthan aFord F-150, for instance.
- Custom work: If you’re going for two-tone paint or a metallic finish, you’ll pay more.
