15K is a decent price.
If u bargain more or find a cheaper guy, u'll end up with a bad finish.

If he's got good reputation and u've seen the painter's jobs, go ahead.

Hi Joshzz,
15k all inclusive is a very good deal. Just hope he does a good job. BTW are you supplying the material(paint, primer etc) if so then it is too high a cost. I would not recommend 15" on a esteem. I can help you out with the performance upgrades and any mechanical jobs. Give me a buzz or pm me whenever you want to execute them.

Viper
PS - BTW Alway sbetter to do all mechanical work prior to paint job.

Hi,

Can you specify what he is providing for 5k. IMO it is not possible to get a complete free flow(headers+expansion box+rear muffler+installation) for so less.
