well materials for a flake job can run in between 500-700 alone. You pay for what you get. I would expect to pay at least $2000 on up for a flake job. Color sanding and rubbing out the car could take like two days of work. Any color change is very labor intensive. To do it right, doors and hood and truck have to come off. IF you want to save some cash, gut the car for them.

black is nice, it has two draw backs. First the body work has to be straight as a board. You can see every little wave when the car is painted a dark color. Second of all, swirl marks are going to be a pain in the ass. That means you have to use micro fiber cloths anytime you polish that thing. Its very hard to take care of. IF your going to have a shop do it for you, let them buy the materials, most shops get a special shop rate. Just check your yellow pages, there has to be a store that sells automotive paint in your area.

It depends on the size of the car you want to paint....I got a gold ice pearl paint job done with some body work and it looks good.The paint job was $2500.
