how much to paint jeep full doors?

Just purchased a set of used full tj doors. Wondering how much is right to paint them to match color of my jeep? I'm not looking for anything special they will just get all scratched anyway from brush.

at the local body shops i was quoted around $650 and that was way too much for me. went to a buddys shop and got mine done for $300. im pretty sure that was the good 'ol boy price though.

You can get spray bombs color matched to your paint.... If you aren't too concerned with the outcome, diy...... Less than a bill.

I do bodywork and if you just doing a color change and not repairing dings and dents then it should cost around $300-$400 depending on the color. Some paint colors cost more than others. Especially reds

If you gotta replace inside door panels to match your interior, you can factor in more $$$ than what the guys here quoted.

Red paint usually costs more because it is made up of more tints then other colors. Some of these tints can cost over $1k just for a quart. To mix the color you mix a predetermined amount of several different tints together. The tints used to make red are just more expensive. Its a total ripoff but all the paint companies are in it together (Dupont,PPG, Spies,ect.) when on raises their prices the others follow suit within a month or so.
As for the interior panels SEM make a great vinyl dye in an aerosol can its about $10 and you can get it at any auto paint supply store.

i got real lucky with my YJ. it originally had the half doors on it


then i decided i wanted to have full doors. i got a set that were black. i found paint at either pep boys or advanced auto parts. i was really lucky b/c the paint matched really well. so i just sprayed them myself.
