Painted Hard Top

What's a decent price for a body color painted Hard Top?

I saw one the other day, and I think it's a BAD @$$ look

Probably be the first mod I make.

What say you, paint guys?

Why? You live in PA...if you actually wheel it at all it will get scratched to hell and you'll probably cry.

For the sake of giving the poor guy at least sort of an answer, when I asked the place that did my AEV hood how much they'd charge to paint the inside of my hood black, they said around $600 (I did it myself for about 30 bucks. lol). So I'd guess you're looking at $750 on up, since there's more prep to be done on the outside of the hood.

now he is implying that Eagles fans drink!!!! Hard to believe eh? If you catch them Terrahawk - shoot them - but just wing them, they may be friends.


Dan - have not seen any yet. Don't know how well the hard top would hold paint. Anyway my Jeep is white and I like the black and white look. If you get it done post up the pics.

Terrahawk:
You're part right. I wouldn't want it to get scratched up on the trail. If only there were some sort of alternate top that wasn't painted. A tough fabric might work. If only.

I take it you're a Dallas fan. Guess I sent those fellas to the right place then. Least our QB ain't a



So, no one has thoughts on hard top paint costs, then?

I was givin a quote of $980 to paint the outside of my top so it would have the look and finish of the rest of the JK. Said there was alot of prep to be done to make the paint finish match the exterior as close as possible. Then he said it would be warranteed for 2 years.

But you are a douchenozzle who posts pics of other peoples' Jeeps and passes them off as your own, and therefore your opinion means nothing to me. Be gone.



Anyone with a REAL jeep have an opinion?

Last I checked, Krylon was like 1.88 a can at Wal-Mart. It'd probably take 8 or 10 cans.

J/K I'd guess somewhere under a 1k depending on where ya' go.
