Paint job

Has anybody ever have their fox fully repainted? If so, how much did it cost ya? I have all original paint and it all looks good except for on the ground effects some paint has flaked off. My worry is if I just get the said ground effects repainted, the newer paint will clash with old paint. Any ideas?

Lol yea but I just wanted to know some prices because I figured since foxes are smaller, less area to cover.

It's not so much the paint or size of the vehicle it's the prep work involved that determins the cost

+1 like rock chips, dents, etc.

My dad is a painter and he will not give over the phone quotes just because of that.

Re: Paint job

A good paint shop should be able to match your paint even if it is a bit weather and time faded.Just ask them if they can before they paint and if they say yes, then hold them to it.


With the paint mixing programs and equipment available nowadays, it should not be a problem.

Yes, it is possible.
They just sand it down smooth and re-clear it.
