Paint cost?

Im looking at getting a new passenger side fender and tailgate... Im having a hard time finding any online in places like craiglist and ebay that are the same color as mine. Im curious as to how much it would cost to get the two parts painted at fords body shop. I have the two tone gray and black and I feel like that will make the job allot more expensive. Im deployed right now if your wondering why I dont just call up a shop and ask myself

P.S if anyone happens to have one of those parts in the right color let me know!

I can't help you on cost but I know that you can't just paying the two panels. You'll have to have the paint blended all around it to make it look right.

I think Port City GT is body shop affiliated, you may want to ask him.

Your local auto paint supply house can pull the color code from the inside the driver door and then tint it a little to match real close or dead on. You should take the truck in with you or at least the fuel door. I bought a quart of paint about $90 and a quart of really good clear for another $90. Matched perfect, shot it in my garage. Supplies and paint for under $250.
Most of these trucks were sprayed with a water based paint at the factory. Its cost more and requires a different tip on the gun. Solvent based is cheaper and easier and looks the same. Unless you very concerned bout the environment!!

My $.02


Ps. Reading your post again i think i misunderstood. You are looking for paint cost from a body shop having them do the work! I would guess $300-500 at a. Decent shop. Oops, oh well, maybe this info will help somebody!
