To Paint or Not to Paint?

I too, have asked the question Ron Joiner asked about "paint restoration,"
but I am looking further (into my wallet).  How much should a FULL REPAINT
JOB WITH CLEARCOAT cost?  Has anyone had this done recently, and if yes,
how much was it?

I am in LA, and I have had quotes of around 2k.  What's the going rate
elsewhere?  My car is without a doubt fading (Tornado Red looks like 10-day
old Tomato Red), and has spots from sun damage and other unknown nastiness
from the road.  I am not going to sell the car for at least three years, so
I can put the cash into it.  Besides, bad paint looks like hell.

Thanks, paint men.
