yea, and to do the paint right they've got to sand what you've got off, pop any dings or dents, and then they spray several coats, and a clear to seal it. paint isn't cheap. I was working in a mechanics shop in high school, we would always tell guys looking to do restoration to let us do mechanical first, then do the paint and body, because it would save everybody time and money. but yea 3-5k for a professional paint job sounds right.
