Hey guys, well for those who dont know. A few months ago my car was backed into by a new Lincoln Navigator. It has been done for a couple months, but I kept of forgetting to show it. So here it is, before and after repairs.
how much did that end up costing you, looks really nice!
sometime ill need to do rust restoration work, and that will deffenetly end up calling for a need to repaint, i know the rust alown will be either really time consuming or really pricey, so how pricey is a good paint job,
Heh, ya I know the pain of being red. I have a great story about that. On the night I asked my girlfriend to marry me (she accepted), on our way home from the resturaunt I was pulled over for not having a front plate on. Now get this, in order for the pig to pull me over he had to go to the next light down the street, do a U turn, pass the bunch of traffic behind me, than pull me over. So I know how bad the color red is. Luckly enough, when I went to take care of the infraction, the people at the station thought it was bullsh*t, and I got off the hook for only $10, when it should have ran me about $40 I think.
Onto the questions , I got my paint job done at earl schieb, it was a pro 4 kit, and I did the body work on my own. The pro 4 kit runs about $720, but I got a deal of $425 for it. I spent the rest of the insurance cash replacing my muffler, O2 sensor, cat converter, and clutch. I am not to too sure about the price for the rust removal, if its not bad, I say just do it yourself.
I wouldnt do paint for the life of me. I complain enough just doing the touch up paint for my car Plus here in L.A. it is easier, cheaper, and better to take it in to the shop than doing it yourself.
yeah, prolly, but it's still very pretty and i want that paint code! :evillaugh soooo hawt!! especially cuz if i get my first mr2, it will also be red, so therefore, the red must go!! i was also thinking of going black with it, just because it used to be black [before the $hitty red paint job i mean] and not many mk1's are black. at least not that i've seen. that, and i thought a bit of sparkle into the black [or gunmetal grey] should set the car apart enough without going too ricey looking [sorry bout the crack, but i don't wanna be another fast and furious ricer-wanna-be].
