I just had my MX6 rebuilt from a total. I had it painted complete black, but I also got PPG Harlequin racing stripes (change color, depending on how you look at em). This would have been about a $4000 job, but since my dad owns the body shop, and I did most of the work myself, I got it for about $250. But the price of the job depends on how much you are having painted and the quality. Few body shops will do top quality work. A lot of work goes into a quality job, such that most places find some place to skimp, like masking items that should be removed, such as door handles and the like. But it all boils down to how good of a job you want and how mcuh money you are willing to spend. If the money is the biggest issue, Walmart sells Crylon for about 3 bucks a pop.
