Your two probable choices would be between two-stage solvent-based urethane that offers a more durable and versatile look or water-based, less toxic acrylic paints. So, your budget should include prep work like removing rust or dents and a high-quality paint job, which can average anywhere from $2000 - $4000.
It is important to note that the type of paint you will need will also depend on what kind of work needs to be done on your car. It’s important to consult with a paint job expert at our body shop to know whether you need a body paint for the entire exterior, a touch-up paint to cover scratches, dent, and scrapes, or spray paint, which can also be used for touch-ups but is often used as body paint.
