Just as a point of reference; when I painted my last project, the cost
of supplies alone ran around $400 to $450. That included a two-part
epoxy primer, a surfacer/filler (Kondar), a two-part epoxy basecoat and
a two-part epoxy urethane clearcoat - all products of PPG. This
process has provided me with the most chip-resistant, non-factory
finish I've ever seen.
Labor costs can be lowered by doing a lot of your own prep work, but I
believe that insisting on the best quality paint will give you a shine
that will last for many years.
