Crap Paint on 2010's

This issue has be around for a while, the early Camaro's had bad paint jobs. My paint has been chipping off every since I've owned the Camaro.

Anyone know the approximate cost to have it repainted? Has some minor dents and needs a new fascia.

I always understood it as the shift from solvent to water based paints for environment has caused the paint to chip away easier.

I had a 4th gen trans am with over 90k that still had Less chips than my g8 at 20k and my camaro at 30k.

Price of paint can vary greatly from person to person, location etc. I've had a bumper painted for $100 for a tundra and another with minimal damage and repairs for $2600.

So you need a new fascia? Any damage behind it? You asking for cost of painting whole car or just touching up spots.

Those auto painters that roam dealers once a week can spot touch chips with a hypodermic needle and matched paint pretty good for cheap.

It' all in the prep and paint isn't cheap I would say you should be in the 4 to 6 thousand range to do it right.

The paint on my early ( 8/4/09) 10 SS is still almost chip free after 8 years and 50,000 miles.
From the reports here I know i've been very lucky. Luck of the draw I guess.
