Re:quote for repainting 200, help!

Steve's conclusion that your estimate is about right for a "proper" paint job 
is correct (and I wish Technibody were in Wisconsin...) but be careful.  I have 
no problem in paying several thousand dollars for a paint job prepped and 
completed correctly.  What I do object to is paying several thosand dollars for 
a paint job I could have done better myself.  Way too many painters reference 
the "premium" jobs that a good shop puts out (to justify their pricing) and 
then deliver a Maaco quality job.  Now, Maaco quality is not bad at all for a 
$200 paint job, but not a $4000 one.  So while the price may be reasonable, 
make sure the quality matches and you get what you pay for.
