Re: New Paint Job (in shop)(pics)

Are you having the door jambs and underneath the hood painted too? I've been trying to get a decent quote on doing so without having to take my car into some place but I can't seem to get any paint shop to throw me an estimate for it. May I ask what you're getting it done for?

Re: New Paint Job (in shop)(pics)

I am getting the door jams done and under the hood is being done a flat black to cut costs...mainly cause im thinking of doing a CF hood so itd be pointless to do underneath. But anyways yeah i was quoted 2200 for the color change but was able to bring them down too 1800(including all the body work, adjusting the bodykit i put on, and shaving the emblems. They didnt have much business. I looked at the work theyve done and there was this Gorgeous Candy tangerine paint job they did on a old chevy and also a stage 2 paint job they did on a truck. To be honest, find a legit shop with older mexicans that work hard for thier money and know their stuff. I respect them for the work they all do cause they always do good work at an even greater price. And yeah your probably gonna have to take your car in so they can see what there working with.

Go to a Legit Business tho...Legit business means legit paperwork with specific writing (incase you feel like suing someone lol)(Just saying)

Nice pick in color but the song is awful... it sounds like a bunch of 11 year olds did it. If he had a deeper voice maby.

Re: New Paint Job (in shop)(pics)

I wish I could get my car's body fixed and painted. My front bumper is TERRIBLE. College first though.

Can't wait to see the results of this paint job!

Re: New Paint Job (in shop)(pics)

Also took my prelude to the shop here in Phoenix for a paint job and now its nice and clean. I ask the mechanic about the job and he charge me $200 for a professionally waxed service. Have you guys tried it? Well, it's something you should give a try...can't remember which wax it was, but we got in this new brand of wax that actually brought back a somewhat faded Milano red. Before that, we had Tropilito (spelling?), which worked better than most regular waxes, but this new stuff is even better.

I'm pretty sure this is already done and he went with the blue.
hence his signature picture.
