Snackmaster Now I'm going to shop around for paint pricing. [/QUOTE said:
for info I paid $1195 plus tax @ 6.25% at the time when I bought the car. Not cheap but the stripes go all the way round the car so there's a bit of work there - I left the car into the garage for a whole week - fair enough I didn't want them to rush it and they gave me a free Enterprise loaner. The dealer said it was the first time they have sprayed a metallic stripe, and if he'd known it was going to be so difficult (he did not expand on this) he would have charged me more ! Anyway they were so impressed with how it looked they sprayed a 10" quicksilver stripe on a stock GT, put it in the show room and it sold within 3 days !
A friend paid $1100 for an all-round 10" black stripe on a yellow GT at the same dealer. There was a thread a few months ago on stripe costs, I can remember which forum but from memory the prices ranged from $800 up to $2000 the latter including the stripes along the lower door panels. I know we all look for a good deal, but you need to very confident in your body shop
Wth respect to width, I would either keep it to 10" or less, or go straight to 13" like mine. Anything in between like 12" can look a bit odd at the front as it does not line up with the lights. A 13" black stripe may be a bit too heavy though. Decisions eh ? I'm in Egypt for the next couple of weeks so may be offline for a while, meanwhile my beauty is sitting quietly at home - talking about the wife of course. I have better photos if you would like some, if I can get enough speed here to upload them.
you know I wondered how a dark red strip would look on a tungsten. my colleagues threatened not to speak to me again :sterb: ouch.
