What did you pay to have your track body (pro) painted??

Just trying to see what approximate price I should expect to pay for mine. Going with a base color, 2 secondaries, and clear.

The estimates I got were all around $400.00. Thats for primer and paint with me doing all the body work. That was single stage and no clear with the white/black scheme I have. Thats why I just said screw it and spray bombed it.

Material alone will be $300-$350 depending on how many colours. Real paint isn't cheap.

I have a friend I grew up with that does phenominal paint work. He has had 2 of his bikes in SSB magazine. He is also good with working within your budget but also being real. Send a PM to ZX-SIK-R and let him know what you are wanting. Or you can Call him. Cody 850-390-3902 He lives up in the panhandle.

Get a gallon of Baer or Glidden paint at home depot or Lowes with a 3/4" nap roller and you'll have them painted in less than an hour. The paint can be mixed in about a million different colors.

I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.

I paid 40-50 bucks for a can of single stage at oreillys. Used the rattle can primer that fills in imperfections. I'm happy with the results - considering I'm going to crash the bike eventually anyway.

Amen. Why waste the money? That's a set of tires, rearsets, boots, helmet, day of coaching, take your pick. My track bodywork will forever be rattlecan.

Only the primer was rattle can. The single stage was sprayed. Sorry if that wasn't clear! My point was you can spray on a budget and make it look good. People hate on single stage, but I think it turned out fine.
