im not a big fan of the stance, but you cant go wrong with a white one. blacked out headlights and ****. but $1400 got me a brand new rear bumper and paint on both bumpers. thats the only part of the car that was messed up besides the hood. it has a few chips on it. im thinking of painting it satin black.

if the same guy painted my whole car, not including door jambs, it would be around 5 grand. he takes out all the glass and everything. i spray my other cars and projects but hes a perfectionist so i wanted him to do my vic.

i dont think thats high at all for the quality of the work. i could go to peach auto and get sprayed for about $300. **** that. mine will be mint. white is also the hardest color to match. i dont trust myself after seeing what my first 20 attempts yielded. im about to spray my dodge ram red and satin black. that i believe i can handle.

true, unless hes going to stick with the same color like i am. no point in doing all that if nothing is wrong with it.

EXACTLY!. i'm sorry i forgot to mention that. but i'm wanting the SAME color thats on it now. thats why i JUST want the outside (exterior) painted. to fix all the imperfections and dents etc. everywhere else on my car as far as the inside and doorjams and trunk and engine hood are ok to me. it's just the OUTSIDE of my car thats bothering me. and since i want to get the same color painted. i just want the exterior painted.

that would work as long as you get a good paint man that can match the white. hes going to have to make the break line for the new color in the door jamb somewhere. the only other spot on my car that needs to be sprayed in the hood but im debating a satin black for that. not sure yet. if not all satin black then a majority of it will be.
