Southern Imports on Cross county road. As far as pricing. That all varies. You can go to Maaco and get it done for $500. But quality isnt there. Plus scope of work will change the price.

When you go there. Tell Jackie or Nate that Hal sent you.

They are my go to shop, especially after they fixed my wifes caddilac and matched the paint 100%

Southern Imports on Cross county has ALWAYS been more expensive for me when ive gotten quotes for paint.

I just recently got my front bumper, WS6 hood and head light doors on my Trans Am painted by J & L auto off of old trolly. Top notch work, great customer service, got the job done when they said they would and got the work done right at the quoted price. Here is my cardomain http://www.cardomain.com/ride/3897599/1996-pontiac-trans-am

Pictures of my car with the WS6 hood are the ones after paint. I wouldn't take my car to Pro Tech off of cross county, everything good i had to say about J&L was what went wrong at pro tech.

also, It cost me $2300 to get my whole camaro painted at Pro Tech, I took all the weather stripping off as well as the GFX to help reduce the price. To change the color means extra labor. Depending how deep you want them to go to change the color (taking doors off to paint the jams and inner door) i could see a color change going for 3,000-4,000. Thats just for a good paint job. If you want show quality your looking at more. Paint is something you could say you "pay for what you get" go cheap and thats the quality paint job you'll get. Best of luck to you, if you do it you'll be very happy!
