was given a nice present by my wife this Christmas... She gave me a
certificate to "get my car painted".
currently have my car painted British Racing Green (1965). I want
to keep it the same.
car was supposedly in the past 2 years by the "shady" dealer I
bought the car from- but if it was, it was a low level paint job or an
"overspray". I never saw the "before", but don't love
know that the car does NOT need any body work. I saw pictures of it
stripped bare, and have been told the body is patch free by Motorcar garage.
is solid and rust free - all it needs is a sanding for prep.
reason I don't think that he actually put a paint job on the car, is because it
scratches at the touch... almost as if the paint was never cured or set
properly. The paint seems "soft".
I do not want to break the bank with this paint job, I am not planning
on entering a concours any time soon, and I consider this car to be a
paint it so that it removes the scrapes and scratches on the car that have
accumulated over the past 2 years.
for a more durable - more forgiving surface for the car - one that doesn't
look scuffed if I happen to lean on it.
spend so much money that I am going to "baby" it.
realize that a Maaco job can be done on the car cheaply (and understand some
members have done this) however I don't know what to look for and what to
anyone have any ideas on where to take the car and "ball park" prices
for the job?
in advance for this information.
I am also planning on having the seats rebuilt over the winter too.
