Pump paint job #774166 01/20/2022 12:13 AM

When I restored my first pump 20 years ago, I knew a guy that could paint it for me.
Got a nice straight pump that I want to tackle, but don't know anyone to paint it.
My 1st pump costed $200 to paint, so I'm sure that I'll be in for a surprise this time.
It's a rust-free M&S 80 ad top pump. Very minimal body work & one color, blue.
Can anyone give me an idea of what it should cost? Thanks Rick

Not sure how you guys are getting pumps done for $600. Basecoat paint at its cheapest is $60 quart (times 2, $120), clear is at least $120 gallon with hardener. Catalyzed primer is $100 a gallon min. Then you have to strip the old paint down, hours and hours of labor, bodywork, multiple coats of primer. Then you FINALLY paint. If someone asked me to paint a pump for $600 I'd show them the door.
