I was reading a post about a member getting a lime green paint job, and I was wondering how much that would cost. I was thinking about just bring the parts to a body shop. It's not much work at all, but I wanted some opinions on it.
Thanks everyone,
Brandon

I'm a lair... I can't remember what the guy's username was that got his ninja 500 painted lime green.

You are looking from 300-1000 bucks though, depending on who does the work, the kind of paint used, and how much prep work needs to be done. You can get one painted a LOT cheaper if you do all the prep work yourself. IE wet sanding all the plastics with 400 or 500 wet/dry sandpaper. If you get the entire surface so its ready for paint then it won't cost anywhere near as much to get the paint job done. (IE 300-500)

Do it yourself, or do what my friends did, find someone that's in auto body classes and have them do it for you, some schools will do it as a class project a lot cheaper than body shops.
