    For good job thats going to last look at starting about 3 grand and up from there, it going to depend on paint, plus am sure to do it right so it last and looks good they are going to have to strip it down to bare metal to make sur ei tsticks good, but what really makes it look good is final coat and the clear thats what protects it.

    price out a vinyl wrap, easier, can get 3d, and if you tire of it, you can peel it off

    Metal roof didn't leak and didn't want to change took much with weight limits. Didn't want that rubber junk for a roof.
    Plus starting over would be too easy. Trying to make sure I stay under 10,000lbs, axles are rated for 6,000lbs each.
