How much should it cost to get a set of half doors painted?

So I just got a set of half doors on Craig's list and was going to get the painted to match me jeep. The shop I just went to wanted $600 to paint the doors....that's more then I paid for them. Does that sound about right for a paint job on half doors???

I would say that's about right for a perfect matched professional job. You could always get other quotes from local body shops to compare. The thing is that they have to buy the specific primer, paint, reducer, and clear probably by the quart. So I bet its probably $150-$200 in just materials...then probably 4-5 hours of labor at $75-$100/hr.

Yeah I was shopping for a new Wrangler last year and it seemed like no dealer had any Wranglers with Half doors. (Why is that?) I asked one dealer and he said he could have them shipped from the factory but they don't come painted so it would be $1000. Half doors are a no cost option if you order from the factory. I'm not sure why dealers won't stock them. I couldn't live without my half doors.
