Re: PAINT JOB

I think candy apple red is a great color that looks good on just about any car. Probably wont be cheap unless you can do the work yourself.

Re: PAINT JOB

I prefer like a black cherry kind of red if you understand what I'm saying. Candy apple is a little too bright for me.

But hey, it's your car! Just make sure you get the work done somewhere that isn't shoddy/cheap, because I've seen some terrible paint jobs.

Re: PAINT JOB

its not going to be cheap and it will take a while for a shop to do it. When it comes to painting a car if you cant do it right dont do it at all, many get burned by good deals... then they get the car back and its horrid.

Just FYI.

Re: PAINT JOB

Like spector V said, it will take time and money. A good paint job is key and is actually a VERY lengthy process. its not a 1,2,3 thing.
dont run towards the deals, look for a shop that has a good reputaion, speak to the owner, let him or her know what your looking for.

i would say do your own research before hand so you know what it takes to get the job done. this way if you feel they are skipping a step you can question them. ask as many questions as you can, you are the customer, your paying for it!

good luck, let us know how it works out.

Re: PAINT JOB

Be careful when you choose a body shop to do it, some painters don't know how to spray candy coats and they will end up coming out cloudy and uneven

Re: PAINT JOB

yea, you can cheap out and end up spending more to make it right. I would personally sell my car and buy a redfire color'ed car if that color is what you are after. Repainting a car is expensive and MAJOR headaches (especially when the quality is not there)

Re: PAINT JOB

Is this at a reputable shop? That's very cheap to do a color change on a car, are they going to do all your door jambs and under hood/trunk ext.?

Re: PAINT JOB

Good deals will usually ending up costing u more in the long run. trust i have learned the hard way lol! if u cant afford to do it right dont do it all. but do shop around for good pricing but if its to good to be true than it usually is. im basically telling u what everyone else has but i wanted to throw my 2 cents in. Good day
