I just got sticker shocked on the cost of paint compared to 20 years ago.

I'm doing it myself so no labor involved.

Red has always been expensive but jeez.

DuPont Imron is what the trailer came with and the cost for a quart is 274 dollars plus 140 dollars for the activator.

Even the cheaper versions are 190 dollars a quart.

I'm sure Mastercraft mixes their own and in large quantities but for a small repaint its expensive!!

I got about the same price from a body shop.

So I was thinking about going straight black or chroming it to match the stainless steel fenders.

Opinions????
