good price for a paint and bodyjob?
i got a quote on my 70. the guy says 3000 for the paint and body work i already have the paint and primer and clear. i replaced the 1/4's and did the front fenders and the guy said i did a good job. he couldn't tell if they were half 1/4's or full so i guess i did alright. i would replace the door skins cuz thye have alot of little dimples in them but he said he can repair them and replace the trunk lid but he says don't worry he'd fix it. he'd hang all the metal and fix the gaps but no chromealso if i wanted the engine compartment painted same as the body he'd sandblast it. i'm not sure if 3 grand is alot, i know that theres a lot of sanding and finesse that goes into these things. i have all the tools to do it and the guy at the body supply shop is really cool so i'm thinkin of doing it myself? my dad thinks i'm nuts and i should jsut get it done but i was lookin for more opinions lol. i've had the car like 14 years and finally have the time and money to work on it. he's supposed to be good, at least recommended by a really good mechanic. and he said 1500 down then 1500 when finished which i think is reasonable. thanks i'm going nuts thinkin about it and dreaming hehe
