hey. do you guys know rougly how much it would cost for me to get an s4 bumper painted and clear coated brilliant black??

09-15-2006, 04:22 PM
about 350 i believe. then some more for installation

09-15-2006, 04:24 PM
350 just for paint!...install is pretty straiforward though. can't be 350 just to spray a bumper. Thats more than what the bumper itself is costing me

350 isn't a bad price for a good respray.

not when the bumper only costs 100. My dad had his front bumper repaired and fender repaired and then color matched for 300, i thought this would be a lot more simple.

my friend got his whole car painted and got some minor door damage fixed for 550... but that was with the hook up here in socal... So I would say that is a terrible price but then again I know a guy who works at a spray shop

Not for nothing but I would never let someone respray my car for 550. Real good paint alone is going to cost about that, probally more.

yea doesnt seem like a good price to me either. Shop i always go to repainted my friends car with some minor body work for 1 grand with lifetime warranty and urethane paint with clear coat....it looks nice....still to this day. I want this bumper on but dont want to wait to get it painted when i get my rear quarter panel and trunk painted....and roof spoiler....damnit i hate how expensive body work is its so not worth it.

yea hes a good friend.... he said if there is anything ever wrong with his paint then thell fix it for free looks great but as time goes on well see how the paint holds up

09-15-2006, 05:43 PM
yeah the price i quoted was from Creative Kustoms. they tend to be on the pricier side but definitely have quality work. they do alot of the paint and installation for Europrojekz

i know how you feel man i found a reiger bumper for a good price but the paint job would've been more expensive than the bumper itself! >.< guess i'm gonna hold off until next summer

09-15-2006, 06:08 PM
yea, i am going to just buy the bumper cause that is an awesome deal and hold off on installing it cause i need tb...im over 60k. I also need new rims and tires soon.......having a car is expensive, even more so when you love moding...oh well i must accept that it is a part of who i am lol.

yeah im tempted to go the super ghetto method and use Duplicolor sprays for the entire bumper hahaha

09-15-2006, 06:16 PM
its harder than it looks man. I used duplicolor for my roof spoiler and their clear coat sucks so it looks not so good. I don't know how people do a good job of it. I might call up my friend who converted his childhood treahouse into a paint booth and just buy some factory black paint and clear coat....thatd prolly cost like 100 bucks.

it's not that hard i just painted my lowers. just need to do a good thorough job of sanding before and wetsanding after

09-15-2006, 06:39 PM
i forgot that my friend has that booth. He painted the ferrings for his gixxer in there. no im excited to get that s4 bumper on. only thing is....it has a 3 inch crack im going to have to plastic weld.
