Paging @95steedamustang ...went to another shop today. Said he wont take it on as 90% of the shops are collision body shops these days and that is their bread and butter. Said i should tear the car down and not do a scuff and shoot as it is a repaint over the factory paint. Told me that shops dont want this work and will quote me stupid high prices as they dont want to do this "restoration" type of work. I am now seripusly thinking of finding someone out of this area who WANTS to paint cars and will do it right.
Thanks for the love @bird_dog0347 .Paging @95steedamustang ...
Seriously, there's a waiting line, but man, I wouldn't (and haven't) trust my PoS to anyone else. His rate is shocking for the quality of his work. The ONLY bad part of it is that he will talk you into all the things you always wanted to do but held back on... but like the crack head I am I love it.
Not sure where you're located, but shipping from DFW to Sweetwater, TN was was under $700 (twice now lol). It is not a fast process though, plan for 1-2 years depending on what is needed.
In reality you need to stay up there, I would love to find a place in north Georgia/south Tennessee but I'm not going into debt to do it, our little corner of town is getting smaller every year.
