Default Painted Stripes ???

The thought of having my vinyl tape stripes removed and a nice clear coat of white paint applied has entered my mind when ever I see a custom paint job at a local car show. It does look nice on other cars !! Has anyone done this ?? The cost estimate I received from a local custom painter was $2,000.00 that included a clear coat finish. Would you paint all the stripes ?

2k is Really HIGH, 800-1200 is a decent price. 3 Places in my area will do for that and all do great work.

I had it done on my 09. I think it was $1,200 to have it done.

I liked the end result, but not enough to do it again.

Did the $1200 include the clear coat finish too ? I thought $2K was a little high too.

Thanks for the feedback. I think I'll start a stripe savings account!

I paid 2k for the over the top and side stripes at a VERY high end shop. They do all custom work. No regular paint jobs.

So...if you're in a major city and you get a AAA job done, 2k is about right. I got 4 bids.

My 08 recieved the final clear coat this afternoon. I heard rumors of around $2K also, mine will be considerably cheaper as I have done a majority of the work myself, and basically just borrowed a body shops paint booth. I just did the top stripes, didn't want to mess with the "GT500" logo on the rockers.
