Cost to have a Jeep YJ repainted

I'm thinking of buying a used Jeep YJ, that is older, mechnically sound, and has an almost perfect body except that it wasn't re-painted very well. Does anyone have a YJ they've had repainted? How much did it cost you? Its yellow now, and I'd keep it that colour, there are two small (fist sized) rusty spots that would need to be ground and refinished ebfore having it painted.

I'm trying to get a feel for the cost of repainting, this vehicle would be my summer toy so I don't want to spend a fortune on it, but I'm too proud to drive a vehicle who's original colour can still be seen in some spots.

Let me know, better yet, if you're in the Ottawa area and have an auto body shop and are looking for work, PM me.

Did they paint everything or only the parts you can see?

Full body and interior floor. If you lift the carpet you might find some corrosion along the joints and bolts as I did in mine. Thus they did all the metal and then I had it undercoated after.
