$800 to $8000. You get what you pay for with paint.
If you want a black paint job to look good, the prep is going to have to be meticulous.
Orange peel and fisheyes are common with low prices.
Any flaw will show up like a great big turd.

Yeah he is right. Your best bet is taking the truck to shops and getting quotes, they all charge different and use different material

black is the hardest color to get to turn out right so it will more than likely cost more than say a blue paint job.... but yeah i would take it to some well reputable shops in your area to get the quotes....

You get what you pay for is right. When I was in the restoration business and doing paint jobs. We did not cut corners. $8,000-13,000 was the usual strip to polish depending on the paint and graphics.

+10! Black is the nicest but hardest to do. EVERY little flaw will stick out bad. If you want black make sure your truck is smooth as glass or even a $2,000 paint will look like (well, you know).
