Yeah it really all depends on what shape the body is in if there isnt any rust and the paint isnt in bad shape that is already on then prep work will go very fast which would keep it at around 2500-3000. If there is rust repair and dent repair involved then you are right it would be closer to 5k. The main issue with paint jobs being so expensive is that a gallon of automotive paint these days costs about 650
