Paint color change

I am currently planning on doing a color change on my 92 this spring and was wanting a little more info on it. I am planning on going from white to a copper, and what I was wondering was to the ones who have done a color change about how much it would cost to have it done if I do everything except the paint job. Also, an estimate on about how much paint would be needed? Just wanting some tips from someone who's done it before so I kind of know what to expect.

prices vary widely in different areas and even at different shops in the same area.The quality of paint can also make a difference..I use base coat/clear coat on mine..I use about 1 gallon of paint and 1 gallon of clear to spray the outside.If you are changing color then the inside will need painting too.Add about another quart-half gallon for that...just check with potential shops in your bet is to carry the jeep and get the estimate in person

It also depends on how "good" of a job you want.
You could just spray the outside and that is easy or, you could do a total change which would require you pulling the tub off the frame and getting everything inside, outside, and in the engine bay.
Time, money, and talent.

been doing bodywork and painting for 27 years, ... if you do the prep work and bring it to me it will cost more if i were even to consider painting it. point being if you have no clue as to what you are doing chances are i will have to redo everything you did. i do appreciate your eagerness but if you are seeking a quality job let a professional shop handle it start to finish. good luck

Well my father has redone vehicles himself so he could do the prepping, but the problem is time, and he wouldn't being able to take his time and really do it how he did with his car. And thanks a lot on the amount needed that gives me a good idea, Thanks for the tips(:
