    God that's tempting though....
    If you want the phone number of the guys doing the job (both named Mike and both cool as hell) just let me know. So far I am impressed! Just last week they did a '50's Mercedes Gullwing. Full time body/paint guys and their prices are great!

    Yeah it is. They spent about 13 hours working on it tonight in addition to the several hours before. So far I have nothing but good things to say about them except that they sometimes don't show up on time. I would not come here giving these hard working guys props if I wasn't impressed by their work and price!

    I had a very funny misunderstanding of your first post!
    It is 12:15 AM here and I am so tired that instead of fully reading the posts I just skim them to get some idea....

    Here is what I skimmed from your post "I have been trying to upgrade my ride, I bought this 84 truck:

    and this car should go:

    "
    What the hell.... you replaced a very nice classic Olds with an stupid 84 truck?!?!..... and I was comparing the pics of olds and truck trying to digest this replacement..... But more I compare them, the more I went into shock

    Also I took a look to the other posted responses, and all were admiring the truck..... !!! What?! Why aren't people blaming you for replacing a classic olds with an stupid truck?

    Finally my eyes caught the terms "donor" and "scrapping the truck" and I returned back and read the main post and realized the story....

    I seriously need to go and sleep...

    Wow, 1k$... That is ridiculously cheap! I have a 600$ quote for paining my rear bumper which needs no bodywork.... And I have a 1400$ quote for an medium sized blemish in my driver side fender which needs some bodywork and paint.... and by the way, what is that wet sanding after clear coat?

    Destroyer you are rockin' along. If the Brick was going as well as this, I'd be a happy camper.

    After the way the car turned out I want to withdraw my recommendation for these guys. They tried hard and the temperature was out of their control but the car has many runs in the paint and I am not happy about it, even for the low price I paid. I know painting in cold temperatures (about 50-55 degrees) is not good but they assured me it would be fine. They were wrong. They will try to fix most of it by wet sanding but I know it cannot fully be fixed and there will be noticeable imperfections. Here's some pics of the car painted and with the clear coat. I love this color and think it looks great on the car I just wish the job turned out better. I am being too anal about it for what I paid and I know that.

    I'd have to see close ups. I've also got terrible vision, so I probably wouldn't be able to see it. Color looks sweet.

    Too funny!!! No I didn't decide to swap out my ragtop Olds for an '84 Suburban even though I think it was a good rust free example of the breed.

    The aftermarket gauges were just that: aftermarket gauges. Tach, oil pressure, temp gauge and volt gauge. All will be re used in my car. The buttons were for the electric fan and a kill switch. One of the switches wasn't used for anything.

    Sorry to hear about the defects in the paint job. Hope it can be sorted out to your satisfaction. I like the color on the car, its' nice to see one done in a more "mature" color for a change!

    While I would whole heartedly agree with your disappointment on my prized classic car, I still bet those guys would be just fine and cheap if I wanted a simple job... say repainting a door or a hood on my Caddy etc. So I don't think the recommendation was bad.

    Yeah there is a world of different expectations for your daily driver and your classic weekend cruiser when it comes to body/paint work.

    They CAN paint but they should not have done it till it got warmer or were able to locate a heated spray booth. The paint was not cooperating. When I remind myself how little I paid for the job and look at it again, I feel better.
