honestly, $2k is on the cheap end with prep work...prep work and good paint job is around $4k for something decent, i went a step further, i think the beetle with me doing all the prep work(not recommended unless very skilled) cost about $4k just for the paint job alone...
the finish is FLAWLESS though...and it was a full job, windows out, full interior out, fenders all off deck lid off bonnet off no engine no gas tank, etc....
just rolled up the frame, body and then all the pieces to be painted hah
