color code question

My buddys cousin has a body shop and i talked to him about painting my car and doing something with my rusted quarters. he said around 3-400$, depending on the color. He needs the color code and I looked under the useful info thread and the one section says the code is EP or EG (not sure which red it is). But is that all I give the guy just those two letters? Never had a car painted so im not sure..and is 3-400$ a good price

That honestly has to be a joke.. Cause the prep alone if done right would easily cost that.. Js you don't want to regret paying someone to **** up your car. Is he legit? Have you seen his work?

That is cheap. Paint code should e on your drivers door jam. It will be two letters.

Hopefully it turns out good. I guess at that price the risk isn't to high. Just remember the prep work is the most important part. Take your time with any body work. To someone that hasn't done much bondo work, it may look straight. But when you get shiny paint on there it will be all wavey. But good luck man.

My dad paints cars on the side. He's a professional painter of about 38 years. He charges around 1500$ give or take. And it is only a fraction of what an actually shop would charge, just to give you an idea.

If you need any help during prep work let us know. I'm sure we could give you some good pointers.
