Cost for new paint job? Sign In

My wife and I just recently purchased a 2008 Toyota Rav4 Limited with a V6 engine and it is 4 wheel drive. As we were washing and waxing it the other day we started to notice that the paint is chipped and scuffed in quite a few spots. Nothing horrible just average wear and tear I guess, but it really has been bugging me and I am wondering how much it would run us to get it re-painted?

Now I know it will cost a chunk of change, but if it's done right I really wouldn't have a problem doing it. Any info and suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I of course will check back here but my email is Thanks for your help.

Auto body work can vary drastically due to quality of work, amount of prep needed and quality of materials. Maaco will paint a car for $200 but I assure you it won't be mine. I think you could get a real good job for under $1000 provided the truck doesn't have too much damage.

after you get it painted or if you just do touch up paint, you ought to consider putting on a clear bra/paint protection film to avoid more rock chips and light abrasions
