    You want to talk about insanely priced paint? Try this on for size, "The Beast" built buy Elizabeth Truck Center and Car Craft on Staten Island. This custom 1997 Peterbilt 379 has a paint job rated over $25,000. That's jut one example. Look up and car that has ever won the riddler award. Absolutely flawless in every way.

    Re: Going to Paint next week!

    A high quality paint job is far from cheap. just he prep and taking body panels off the vehicle alone cost alot.

    Factory quality paint on most non luxury vehicles is pretty poor. And honestly the paint on the V isnt that nice, even some v2s had pretty poor paint ( peel and what not). The diamond black is actually pretty nice.

    Thats one way to tell if your vehicle is in the same class as another vehicle. Look at the detail of the paint work and the quality put into it.

About 2K but WOW do they sound awesome!! I am putting in the JL10W7 next with 2 Audison amps and Eclipse cd7000 head unit. Will loose my Nav. and some info. features but Oh the sound!!
    Maybe I can help you with your paint scheme Ranger... My V is currently in the shop getting painted, supposed to be done within the next couple of days. I did the new house of kolor kandy blurple w/ black following the body lines the way I drew it and cutting off around the hatch... It's a little hard to describe but I'll try to post some pics for you when its done so you can see. and as far as price goes 10k is very reasonable for show quality paint, If it wasn't for me being friends with the owner of a custom shop i'd easily be paying 12k or more for this job.
