    Quick question on paint.

    Ok, my goal right now is to get an old running VW Bus and give it a paintjob like the Mystery Machine (from scooby do). Any one have a guess how much the paint job would cost. Or would it be easy to do yourself? Thanks for any answers.

    $300? Isnt that a little low. Im not an expert on paintjobs but I thought it might be in the $1000-$2000 range. But hell if its $300 Ill paint like 5 or 6 of these things and turn around and sell them haha.

    you could get a wrap for about $2000 depending on the square footage.

    I'd go with the wrap too. I know a guy who actually did a scooby doo theme to van. It was the same model as the mystery machine. Also, if you get tired of it, you can always peel the wrap off.

    300 bucks for one single color, but getting it painted just like the mystery machine would cost you a few grand.

    My thought to save money would be to have the green applied to the van. Do the masking yourself and have the blue applied. Use wide pinstriping for the separation between the two colors and have the rest (orange) applied from vinyl at a sign shop. Way under a grand for the whole thing.
