I was looking at getting my sedan painted Civic Si Blue...any ideas on how much this would cost? I know it's all dependent on the shop and state...but any general figures?

How much more would it cost to have the engine compartment and everything visible painted?

Good idea about Electron Blue, it would look good on a Legend.
But, the money would be much better spent on a custom turbo.
However, I would say the paint job would cost anywhere from $3000 to $4000. Engine compartment and everything else would probably be alot more.

Really? That much huh?

Well, we can forget about that. It's too bad paint jobs cost so much....I would love to have a Electron Blue Legend. I love how Danny's looks...but I dont think his is the exact color as the civic...am I correct in that statement?

Guess I will just have to settle on getting the scratches on my bumpers and skirts touched up...

I bought the car from a guy who took great care of it internally...however...he was older and bumped into stuff a lot...

But, at over $5k below bluebook...I wasn't complaining...

How were you able to get insurance to pay for it?

Wow, you got a pearled paintjob for only $2K...am I mistaken in believing that is a GREAT deal?

I love how a black sedan looks also...but they are so hard to keep clean...especially until we get my road paved...

13k? Dear god...that is more than the value of the car most likely...

I just can't see myself investing that much into my Legend. I love her to death...but that's a whole other car with that money...

inferno, if i am not mistaken, are you located in sacramento ? i am located in bay area and i need a paint job. if we can find one shop that will do paintjob, probably two cars will save us money. what do you think ?

Yeah, I am over in Sac...about 40 miles East of downtown.
Sounds like something we should definately look into.

I think it comes down to me being too cheap to afford a nice, custom paint job though...

But getting some prices would be worth while. However...my car will be out of commision and like 100 miles away...I dont know if I like that idea...
