This is kind of a tough question without a little more info but I will give my $.02

Body work and or rust is what adds alot of time and cost to a paint job. With all that aside (saying that you need no body work) I would say you are still looking at over 1000 for a decent job. It depends a lot on the paint too. I think many times the phrase "you get what you pay for" is valid particularly with a paint job.

well my co-worker says he can do it for 1500, but it will be spotless. im gonna get stock silver paint with a little bit of darker silver mixed in. he can do any color, but stock has higer resale value. im gonna paint the door handles too, maybe some interior things as well.
