    2 or so g's was for paint, but if you are already expecting to pay that much then for all the body work and shit that should be around the price range

    I got a nice paint job, body work, new driver side fender, all rust removed and panels smoothed for 1500.... of course I did not rush the guy who did and so he could do it in between other jobs.... depends how fast you want the truck back.... check around.... I was told it would cost closer to 2500 at other places.... good luck

    lol no need to be an ass hole i said the rocker panels which means everything under the rocker panel line need replacing

    NJTY has a strong point! I'd never give an estimate without seeing the whole thing. There could be more rust than you think! If you have a lot, allow yourself at least 5 grand!
