STREET & SHOW PAINT JOBS
Most custom paint finishes will fall into one of the following categories:
– Special Effect Overlays
– Bare Metal Resprays
Special Effect Overlays
This is a great way to create a unique paint job without blowing the budget, making it perfect for street cars. House Of Kolor products enable you to use an existing paint finish as the base for an exciting new colour scheme. This saves the time and expense of painting the engine bay, boot and doorjambs, etc.
Clever design work and creative use of colour can add a special effect to just a few sections or transform the whole car – especially if a new body kit and wheels are being added. A special effect overlay should only be used over new or good condition paint and bodywork. Expect pricing to range between $4,000 to $6,000 complete.
Paint cost represents 25% – 30% of the total job.
Bare Metal Respray
This is the real deal. If you’re looking to completely change the colour of a car or you are aiming for a “showcar” quality paint job, a bare metal respray is the way to go. Design and colour options are literally endless for a bare metal respray, but it’s important to realise at the outset of the project that a painter’s skill plays an enormous role in the outcome. You should also remember that high quality custom resprays will always be expensive and that the price of House Of Kolor paint is often not much more than many other high quality smash repair/refinish paints.
For street cars, expect pricing to range between $6,000 to $12,000 depending on extent of bodywork repairs and detail required. And if you are building a full on show car with extensive bodywork or customising it won’t be hard to spend at least $15,000 and upwards.
