If you plan on doing it yourself for under $2,000 you can accomplish that. Otherwise good luck.

What’s it doing Steve? Clear coat or color peeling? Stupid paints are freaking ridiculously priced. You could have that much wrapped up with materials...let alone labor/prep.

You might be able to get the car vinyl wrapped for that.
And it will easily resist stone chips

no way in hell will you get it wrapped for $2k. Figure twice that.

Paint for $2k? It is doable... but you need to do a lot of the prep yourself.

Take off all the lights and trim. Thankfully, there are not a lot of either.

Fix any dings in the paint... Eastwood sells a filler that will work with SMC - the stuff the body panels are made of. Also, sand down any areas which are badly faded.

Finally, be willing to get the car down to Santa Ana... McJack's Corvette. Jack is a friend of mine and he does great work, the least amount of labour he has to do the lower the price gets.

I would, at the very least, reach out and ask him.

The key word is, "might."
I was going by a local estimate.

LA is a different animal. There are 10 shops around here - at least - that claim Corvettes as their speciality.

So there is competition.

maybe... but only if they use the good stuff. Use the junk paints and clears, it won't last.
