The cost of the paint only included the materials since this builder is an amateur painter. The budget used so far was $4,091, leaving $900 for materials. Quesada tells us it took him two weeks to spray. He says using mid-line paints in "stock colors" kept costs down. He thinks he put about $500 in the Dupont Kawasaki Green, Viper Blue, Sun Yellow, Ultra Silver, and several airbrush colors, and the clearcoat paint scheme, including tape and paper.
