I was just standing in the shower thinking of my daily mod ideas and thought, I wonder how much a re spray would be.

Anyone done one? It's only the front and rear fender and a tank.

Surely it wouldn't that much £££ especially if you took the parts off the bike yourself.

This would all depend on what you are looking for. Are you looking for just a basic flat respray or art work?

I'm not planning on doing it anytime soon. It was just a thought.

If I was to respray it would probably be a metallic black.

Any good respray will cost quite a bit, the prep work for a paint job is very time consuming.

price could be quite differnt depends on who does it how good a job they do and how much primer paint and laquer (coats means time) i would say 150 quid would be pritty good price and have a feelin you could get quotes of quite a bit more depends on were you go who you know and how much they charge in your part of the country

I don't think you would get a good job done for £150 , like FT says it depends on where you go. Beware there are plenty of cowboys out there.

i would not pay any more than £200 but i know the gye who does the spraying he did both front wings all four doors and the rear quarter pannels and featherd it into the rear bumper on my wifes volvo for 650 pounds and took out sum dents plus he does a good job but he does like a hagle and as they say it's not what you know it's who you know. most spray shops were i live would want 250 a panel or more for a car

I would have thought that you would be looking at about £400 at a guess. Don't forget the side panels though if you ask for a quote

i payed 150 for a tank and side pannels were i dident know the gye's but i spoke to the boss (who liked bikes) about the price and the manager grumbled that it was being done to cheap that was about four years ago or so though that was at a place that sprayed coaches so not at all what they sprayed (bike bits) try ringing around see what people say

I wouldn't like to put a figure on a spray job because there's so many different paints and finishes, but you'd greatly reduce the cost if you did your own prep work as Morgan said, you could easily strip the tank, but the fenders and side panels are plastic, so you'd have to rub them down a great deal to remove the pinstripe and get ready for a solid colour.

You'd need about 1,5l of paint for 2 fenders and a tank.

In paints alone that would be circa:
- £85 for sealer
- £100 for metallic black
- £60 for lacquer
- £35 for reducer
- £40 for catalyst

That's very rough estimate of Autoair paints with House of Kolor clear...
So in paints alone you'd be looking at £320ish.
+ whatever the charge for doing it would be... meaty bill.

You'd need to find a workshop that has gallons of paint lying around where they get it at discounted prices and can charge you much much less.

Wow, When i wanted to get my car sprayed, 10 years ago mind you, it was gonna cost £600 for the whole car.

Same story for my mates mini, it was £500, he actually went ahead with it. Came out fine.

I was expecting £200 or so. Like I said, I have no plans currently to have it done, but I like to know prices in case I have money burning a hole.

Shady I quoted Autoair and House of Kolor paints which are rather dear as they're top shelf stuff (HoK being the Rolls Royce of paints) so you'll definitely find the re spray cheaper if you look for alternatives matey, especially that you want simple metallic black.

Doing the prep work would reduce the cost quite a bit, the thing to remember is the prep is an important part of the job and will be a large factor in the out come of the finished job,, it isn't just a case of rubbing down with a piece of sandpaper.

Ray is spot on... prep is 90% of the job.
If your parts are in good condition then it's easier as in reality you won't even have to prime it again - allegedly - so you just wash, sand, was, degrease and seal/base paint...then you're onto the proper painting...

I'm very much learning it all the hard way...pumping money into paints as I use them up a lot now....another investment around the corner in shape of large tip spray gun as I'm overatomising now and majority goes to waste as dry overspray and the rest just peels off under tape....arrgh...the science of painting is equally exciting and frustrating....

BLOODY COLD WEATHER DOESN'T HELP EITHER!!!! ;D
