Bro..I run a paint shop in Sri kembangan n honestly there is no such thing as cheap but good quality..reason being in paint different choice of materials used means different costs..low/in house brand material means low costs whereas if u choose branded n already renowned/proven means a more higher costs..eg. u can get a 1k job but after some time d paint faulty OR a 2k job n d paint lasts at least 5 yrs...apart from that it depends on d condition of ur car..more work (rust job,body knocking etc) means more costs..n so on n so forth..

can get cheap 1, but not to cheap la only different on 2,3 thousand only, you find by you self paint and brew by you self and go to paint shop for workmanship, but i think paint shop will not give you a warranty.

Tough when people want cheap and good right? I know its damn tedious, especially the prep work. Cool, now I know there's a guy here to go to if we need to re-spray the car.

True true but in my case materials like paint,lacquer,thinner etc etc got gst but I have to absorb that in my costs or else I'll have to charge higher which I x afford to do since got soo many paint shops,legal n otherwise,to pick n choose from...in other words competition is very stiff..what I can absorb I'll absorb just to bring d price to a more manageable n suitable wiz each customer..

I have seen a few paint shops that employed Bangla. The bangla weren't supervised of their prep work, suka-suka chatting away while doing prep work. The boss pulak always away.

I definitely don't wanna to have my car to be the white mice for the bangla to learn their trail and error.

Bro fazidk... Just for layman understanding. Let's say spraying a car the size of Myvi, how long does it take end to end including prep work, and roughly how much assuming using quality paint such as Glasurit?

- duration range from 1 week onwards (depending on d above)
- price depends on d 1st 2 points above

My understanding from last time talking to the Glasurit HQ in South Africa, Glasurit is moving away from oil based paints and going into water based paints which is significantly cheaper than oil. Isn't this true here in Malaysia?

Due to growing environmental issues and legislation pressure, Glasurit paint lines had to switch to water-base.
Country such as the US has imposed strict rules/req. on car manufacturers to use water-based paint and stuff if they want to sell cars/import cars in US.

This is one of the measure to counter pollution.
