I am looking to repair some dents and repaint my civic. I was wondering what all gets done when a car is getting refinished? I have a few dents, and a little rust spot, and want to get the whole thing painted. About how much would this cost me?
It's hard to make an estimation without even seeing what's wrong with it.
But the paint/body work will probably run you about 2500, more than any
civic is worth.
What doesn't get done when a car is getting refurbished would be a better question. When refurbishing a vehicle, the whole thing gets re-done.
first of all,i would have the dents,if you are talking about small parking dings taken out by "the dent wizard" etc.if a body shop does it,you will have filler over all those spots.some places can paint a car for 500 dollars. a real paint job where all the trim is removed and the door jams inside, and inside the trunk and hood is painted,and you want a base /clear paint job done it can run 3000 to 5000 dollars.
