Thousands. And I wouldn't consider any website. If this is really something you want to pursue, I'd find a local top-notch body/paint shop and have a long talk about what you are wanting...

i'd like the stuff to last another 10 years at least so i can sell the car without having to redo it, but i can't afford to pay all that much.. i need a quote though, because my dad said he was gonna head up to a shop and see what he could do (I'm away at school), but i gotta get an idea of how much i'm gonna owe..

In that case, somewhere between $10 & $10,000. Caveat emptor...

Are you wanting to clearcoat the car yourself or have a body shop do it for you?
