Oh, kewl!! Then, I'd say low prolly $50-$60 a gallon, say, 2 gallons oughtta get 'er. Then you got self-etching primer(can you tell I recommend that?? ) and clear-coat. Over all $350 to $450 unless you want classy paint like PNG, then you're looking at $450-$600.

Do you really, really need another paint job? The 96-99 paints are very nice and shiney. Even now the paint still looks good on them. I would try getting a nice wax and buff job. If it still looks dull then paint it.

Sorry, got you mixed up with somebody else. I remember looking at a post and 2 ppl had a green bonneville SE. 1 was a 96 and DrDuess had a 97. I thought tyou were the one with the 96. They said DrSuess had a more shiney paint job. I thought you were him.

The body shop I have gone to twice in the past is one of the more pricey ones here...since it'* part of the dealership. I asked roughly if he could mix up some extra paint for me since I was going to fix my rust myself. He discouraged me from having them mix some paint for me. I don't know why he did, but anyway, he said it would be ~$120 for a pint of paint.

I was like WTF!!! I don't know, maybe he said that so I would not bother and let them fix my rust so they'd get more of my money. But if he WAS serious and a pint costs $120 there, they are ucking RIPOFFS!!!
