Its ALOT of work and $$ to do a color change, let alone a specialty color. Whats your budget????

All I have to do is buy the primer, paint, and clear. I'm going to an automotive collision school and I get to use their equipment and other supplies for free. And as far as budget for the paint and stuff I'm pretty open as long as it's under about 2 grand.

I'm trying to figure this out too. Getting ready to frame swap and respray here in a couple months. Initially I was thinking a blue. Then I really wanted to do a matte black, still do but not sure it's very practical for a jeep ( still researching some matte clears b/c a base/clear is the only way i'd do it) , now I'm leaning towards a pearl white. Decisions, decisions.

I've done some color changes on some other cars that were a real PITA but the jeep shouldn't be too bad, there's hardly anything to them.

We do painting and airbrushing here and I had been thinking about either a dark blue or dark purple with matte black airbrushing on it but I just wanted to get some other ideas.

Well i can tell you that good product isnt cheap, especially when you get into kandies or radiance colors. I regularly spend $4500 on material to paint a vehicle

It's a head turner for sure, but I like it. The interior is stripped and pretty plain, so to me the camo paint kind of goes along with it.
