Respray?? How much?

Love my 2003 Tribby. She's all I need in a van, but crikey, am I ever tired of white. Has anyone had their PVC resprayed, or is in the biz and knows what it might cost? I'd like to get some general idea before I troll around the shops.
Cheers!

Hi Jacsprat,

Should have added - how long is a piece of string!

The only way you can get an idea is to get a quote. It will be down to how much work yours needs for preparation and of course the colour. Prices could range from £1,000 for a simple job to £5,000 to get a good one.

Of course there will always be the back street garage who could do it for £500 but the chances are it will peel off and rust through fairly soon!

Hope that at least helps.

Regards

Chris

My Dad had a lovely job done on his Renault Trafic PVC (1993) by a local body man for £700-and that included designing and fitting new stripes etc! However, there are little bits of overspray etc, but at that price, who's complaining? For a van as modern as yours, with full preperation (Such as removing door handles etc etc) I wouldnt think you would have much change from £3000

White is looking better and better. Last time I had a vehicle painted it was in Canada 10 years ago. '69 Buick Skylark convertible, sprayed metallic candy apple red by a reputable shop, $1100 (£550).
I was hoping for a generic non-metallic red or sommat, good shop, under £2000. Time to go for a reality check.

Why not motor to Spain in the Spring 3 days in the shop stay in a local B&B 35 euros a night.A van should be cheaper less trim less doors so guess 1250/1500 euros.

Rolls Royce Silver Shadow?? Trumps my Buick (though I did LOVE that car).
Fine idea! I'll look into it. In fact, I'm on my way to Greece shortly. Maybe there are deals to be had...

Thanks!

I have just had a quote to paint my Arto silver (it's white) - £10,000. And this from a guy I've known since I started crashing, I mean driving, 24 years ago!

It is a lot of work to do properly.

Have you thought about having it vinyl wrapped? That's how a lot of trucks are done these days.
