Repainting cost

This is the year I’ve finally decided to have my 88GW painted, and since the last time I had a car painted was in the early 70s I don’t have any idea what a fair price would be. I took it to a local dude who has pretty good recommendations to see what he thinks.

The car has no rust and just a few minor dings and dents. The vinyl needs to be replaced, but the moldings are in very good shape and the body man told me he could reuse them. He would remove the windshield and side windows and paint the door jambs.

I volunteered to remove/reinstall the bumpers, grill, roof rack, door handles, logos, marker lights, etc. I would have to provide the replacement vinyl and the rubber for the windows. He would do all the body work and paint it the original white with clear coat.

His estimate was somewhere between 6 and 7 grand. That doesn’t surprise me but it still seems a bit high considering I’d be buying the vinyl and doing much of the grunt work myself.

So, what do you guys think? What have people been paying to get a similar job done? I plan on getting a few more estimates, but hope to get some information from you to use as bargaining ammo.
