You'll be hard pressed to find a cheap sprayer that will maintain reasonable quality. I'd have a look around your local area at a few sprayers' workshops, looak at some of the sprayed cars in the carpark and try to suss out which u think do the best work for a reasonable price.
I ended up paying heaps for my Senator, but they did a great job...
PM if u want details...

What colour?
Doing it the same colour?
2Pac or Acrylic?
Whole car full respray or just outer shell (doors, boot, roof etc)?
Will you be rubbing and prepping the caror will the painter be doing it?
How much are you looking at spending?

Just under 3k, didn't get skirts or front/rear bars done..
They had the car for two weeks, and the last two days it was there, all they did was have an apprentice buffing it!
Not sure how much less it would be if you BYO paint..

I think that Auto1, Supercheap auto and bunnings do paint jobs.
Go there and ask for 30 cans of matt black spray paint and a roll of masking tape.

I know what your sayin......... ..


for just a rub and paint would usually run about about $2-3K no engine bay or door jambs thats a fair price............

For a decent paintjob at bellevue your looking at 8G......go to some lebbos get it done and you will pay 3-4G and you will be selling the car soon enough or taking it back to a decent painter to get it done properly. Thats just if your a fussy c*nt.....if you dont really care and just want something that looks good on the street....then go for a cheaper one. The cheaper one will still look good , but its the fine details like little runs and pits and stuff, and the way everything is put back together that will set them apart.

Yeh maybe you will spend $8000 at bellevue, but are you going to spend $3500 with some dodgy lebo..?? then realise that you could of got twice as good and want to take it somewhere else spend even more and end up spending over 10 haha... thats why i took my car to bellevue because i really thought about that and have seen it happen sooo many times.

Exactly good paint jobs start at 8K

My mate had a 3K job done a while ago it was pretty ordinary and not much to look at up close but it passed the 50 meter test LOL there is so much to paint jobs and people just don't understand but like I previously mentioned its up to the individual what he can live with if they're prepared to settle for second best then so be it......... there's this old saying I always have a laugh over.

" Quality is like oats, If you want good quality then you must pay a fair price, If you can be satisfied with oats that have already been through the horse? well that comes a little cheaper................"

LOL I crack up everytime
