anywhere from $300-infinity and beyond

depends on what type of paint, what brand of paint,what type of gun, the skill of the painter(s), how good the prep work is (black is a BIIAAATCH) etc... etc...

cars i have painted:

primer, sand paper, and paint under $500

sand paper, paint andclear coat right around $800 (never cut or buffed the clear which is more $$$)

sand paper and paint/clear around $400

If you use cheaper singlepaint , you can get what you need for around 250. Thats primer w/ activator, paint, reducer, activator for paint, and wax and oil remover. This is taking into account you already have necessary supplies like tape, masking paper, sand paper, tack rags, and spray equipment, etc

Unless you REALLY know what your doing I do NOTadvise you to paint your carblack for your first paint job. Black requires the body work to be PERFECT, if it is less than perfect the car will look very bad. Go with a lighter color like silver or somthing.
