Here is a tip for a young kid who just got a car, learn how to drive. Not to knock on your abilities but we all make rookie mistakes so I would recomend taking your time on your car before dropping a lot of money on it. As for your question, I don't know but its not cheap.

03RSX-S -- lolz...¿stunt 101? whas that about....

and rsXploited -- i feel u...but i've been driving for quite some time now.

i don't plan on painting it next week or anything, but just...eventually.

and the paint i plan to use is somewhat expensive, and despite my being a "spoiled daddy's girl," i have to pay for a decent amount of it.

therefore, i've got to save my money. i'm just trying to get an idea of exactly how much i need to save.

peace.

Complete color change? about $5000-$8000... If you pull the motor yourself, around $3000-$5000

heh, ease up bud :) Besides its a ricegrrl this time around.

I'm not sure how much paint it would take to coat the car, try calling the dealership or a paintshop, they sould be able to give you an estimate on the amount needed and even a price.

If you are just looking to paint the visible, I've seen as low as 800-1000 for the exterior. A good job will cost as they said above. Taking out the engine to get the inside painted and the doors, rear, under and all that crap.

People like 03RSX-S are what make some of these threads a waste of time to read through. The girl asked a question and was hoping for a straight answer...not some dumbass' opinion on the matter. At least her car is driveable and not wrecked in a fucking ditch, asshole.

As for her question: It would probably be best to check with a professional painter and see what they think, as I don't know if anyone on the boards will be able to give you an accurate answer. Faint is right though, you are looking at dropping at least $5000
