Stay Grey or go Blue?

I have an 04 F-250 that is currently Grey and black, she is about to become a 2010 thanks to all the parts waiting on me to get home. The question is, to keep it the same color, or go with a royal blue? Maaco has given me a quote over the phone for about $1,000 to repaint. How much would it cost to change color, and can I save any money if I leave off all the parts they would haft to tape off like, grill, bumpers, head lights, ext.?

The grey truck on the left is what she looks like now, and the one on the right is an example of the blue I'm talking about.

Thanks, Richard

Sometimes (inexpensive painting) may cost you a lot more down the road, a good professional paint job on a truck goes for 4 - 8 Grand, and if you are going to paint it, better do it right the first time, bc if it looks like ****, there goes your resale value... also what it would cost you to fix it from a half *** job... and the title is going to say one color and the truck is going to be another and with a front end conversion i would be taking pictures to let the next buyer know that the truck was not in a accident, that you documented the upgraded changes... if you dont paint it right then your inner joints and nook and crannies are going to show if the truck is not disassembled all the way completely, not to mention over spray and orange peel... just be careful on what you decided

maaco will most certainly not do the job you are looking for.Don`t know where you are located but around here i have seen some horrible $1000 paint jobs from them.You get what you pay for. I would look for a quality body shop to do the work and ask them what the price difference is with the parts on or off.They grey looks great keep it !!!

Thank you all for the complements and votes. $1,000 was there easement of an average paint job, so I was going to get there best. If any one can recommend a place around Brooksville FL or around where I'm stationed in Norfolk VA, I would look in to any suggestions.
