Re: Re-Paint

I am not sure of allthe right steps other than I know the prep work is key to a good job. May be worth just paying a shop to do it right for you. In the end it may cost you more to do it on your own if you mess things up that need to be fixed later again.

Re: Re-Paint

If you're getting a shop to paint the car, have them do the prep work. Most shops will frown upon getting a car in that is already prepped and will blame any blemishes and failures on the person who did the prep.

If you really want to go through with this then start researching. You'll need about $100 in sand paper and alot of time. If there are body spots that need repair the price will only go up from there.
