New Paint

.........Coming in 2 weeks. :D

I've been AWOL for a longtime and haven't done a thing to my car. I was just in a funk where I didn't feel like getting anything done.

Until saturday I finally decided enough of the dings and bowling ball paint job. She goes in today. I could tough it out without her for this week, then I hi florida for 10days for work so I won't be missing out much. Figured it's good timing. I'm very excited. I'm just matching the Nighthawk pearl.

I'm getting everything shaved. I mean EVERYTHING except driverside door handle. No side markers, no wing, no emblems, no bumper holes.


I'll try to keep yous posted during the process. Until then I'll post pictures of her now.

That's the spirit. Love the yellow signals and fogs! GL on the body work.

Re: New Paint

Thanks buds. I'll post pics up as soon as it's done or in between.

I stopped by the place today to get something out of my car and they didn't even start it yet. :(

I dropped it off on Monday. I was hoping to have it by the time I get back from Florida on the 23rd, but I don't think that's gonna happen.

Re: New Paint

Thanks guys for saying it's looking good, but the pics I posted are before it went in for paint, haha. Those pics do it way more justice than it deserves. My car looks like a bowling ball.

Seriously there are so many dings & scratches you will be sick.

Re: New Paint

It's taken entirely too long for this to get done, but finally this week I will have her back.

Here's what I've seen recently. On friday the base coat was on. Just waiting on my hood [Seibon] to come in.

Re: New Paint

Glad to see that I am not the only one that has neglected a Lude for a while.
Hell I just washed mine for the 1st time in 4 months yesterday. But this guy has
given me some motivation to get my car repainted.

Can't wait to see the finished project.

Re: New Paint

Just a quick sneak of the car getting buffed.

I made the picture unsteady on purpose. Like most of the pictures I take em with my phone. I'm saving my camera on the car for when it's done. :D

Re: New Paint

Looks good so far. How much they asked for the shavings and the paint job. How many layers of clear coat on there.

My buddy knows these guys he goes too for his Supra. He's asian so they stick together, but I'm pretty sure they half assed me some way shape or form since I'm white.

About the clear, it looks good to me in person, but I see what you're saying. I haven't really stared at it for holograms yet either. So we'll see. He said I can bring it back if I have any problems with it.

They charged me $2500 to:

Clean up 14 dings, a dent on the roof (from my old Cf hood flying up on me on the highway)

Shaving of:

passenger door handle
badges
keyholes
Spoiler
Mounting of new hood
Mounting of aerocatch flushmount pins
New windshield and molding
and ofcourse NHBP Paint.
