That sucks, I'd be totally miffed. Sorry I cant point you in the right direction for a paint job, I'm trying to find someone in ND to paint mine without me getting raped in the process. Good luck

I went to a shop last night for an estimate, he quoted me $8000! I offered to sand and prep the body myself and he told me "no", we have to do that ourselves because the small dents are too hard to find and fix if they dont do it themselves. 8000 seems like an awful lot for a car with very little surface rust and only a few dings, might have to attemp to do it myself.

Look out here in Montreal it would cost about that much 7-8000$ if you want something nice. I know cause I just spoke to a buddy of mine about the same thing. I thought about painting my car the original color ( dark moss green ) and he told it would cost that much for a good job.

Maybe I'm just not being realistic, but thats about double my budget. I think I'll try to do it myself, how bad could I screw it up?!?

You have any tips for a first timer? How long did it take you and what type of gun did you use? Thanks

I've been considering doing it myself too. I'm retired so nothing else to do. I think I can do a good job. I'll hang plastic in the garage.

Umm well take your time and sand everything with a real fine sandpaper. And when you think it's smooth enough. Go over it again haha and for paint guns I'm not really sure. Just go to a paint shop by you and ask.
