Tech college paint

Just wondering if anyone has had their car painted by a technical college and how it turned out, or pros and cons about getting it painted by one.

They charge for the supplies like paint and body work stuff, then 20% of that cost. They dont charge labor, the 20% just goes to the school.

Re: Tech college paint

i went to a tech school (high school) for autobody. and it really all depends on the kids. some were really motivated and we turned out perfect sht everytime, others were just lazy and didnt care. its always a risk whenever you have students that are learning use your car for a learning experience

Re: Tech college paint

ehh, it'd be a great diy
I done my 97 in a ford blue LOL
only a few runs, I do have pics of it.
My friend said he'd charge 400 w/ the paint shop at our techincal school. I do trust him, Just depends on if you want to risk or not.

Re: Tech college paint

I was also thinking about getting my car painted white, but i dont think i would trust a tech school for that because they wouldnt do the door jams and engine bay i dont think.
