    Re: What did you do to your car today?

    me too...

    hes saying 850 for the doors, and he's going to blend into the adjacent panels.
    Being skeptical i asked what if i just decided to do the whole car a metallic white? He said 2k, whole car...

    Im wanting to lean torward doing the whole car, but thats 2000, and to be honest i do love the pearl white, but it would be awesome to have fresh bright white paint

    I guess it's worth a shot. I mean, even 2000 for the whole car sounds low to me for white diamond, but some guys really are good at what they do and know how to do it without much overhead, or just need the cash. Worse case if you don't like it, you can do the whole thing after that.

    2000 wouldnt be white diamond, just white metallic.

    Hes doing this work on the side using his employers facilities. With their blessing of course, since their current focus is buying totalled vehicles and stripping, parting, and scrapping them.

    Ahh ok, still seems worth a shot for the doors alone.

    Jimmeh is correct. I was being intentionally obtuse. Since Sal doesn't let us list cars we drive, only Cadillacs, I don't list my Town Car.

    I sold my '07 TC Executive L on Tuesday with 199,500 miles and picked up my '11 on Tuesday. It took 2 days because Ford was wasted much of Tuesday and part of Wednesday checking the credit for Home James Inc., not Home James! Inc. even though they were given my address, amongst other things...

    But I sold my TC in West Orange, NJ and the buyer drove me 20 miles north to Wayne, NJ which is one of the rare Lincoln fleet dealers who have TCs in stock. And my friend lives in Staten Island so I had a place to stay for a couple days.

    Thank you, sir!

    Of the many things in life that irritates me, cliche transportation names is high on the list. Especially turds like Above All Trans and Best Trans and Elite. I can just give people my company name when they ask what I do and they know. And while maybe 2 or 3 people have ever actually said that to me, many, many have asked if I hear that phrase.

    So I rolled with it when I started my business...
