How soon are you wanting this done? After reevaluating my projects, it'll be a while until I can clear up some shop space for another project.

I need to get a "back together" pic of this; it turned out really well. I may be in trouble at work for almost taking today off without notification, so if I get fired I'll have a LOT more free time to work on everything sooner than later... we shall see.

It sucks because I love my job and the people I directly work with, but I loathe the stupid corporate BS that trickles down and fucks up my job as well.

Good luck, I deal with the same BS.

You're all making me seriously consider leaving my steady job to open an actual shop (instead of the one I rent now).

Hm............

Anyone know how much a simple paint job would cost?

I do not want anything shinny in fact stain green that my 4runner is without the clear is all I want. Is there still the Maco specials of $200 or something.

Base color needs a clear coat but DuPont (and most companies I guess) make an additive that makes the clear flat. We did this on my last manager's Mustang; it doesn't look too bad, just odd.

This was his last day of work, the hood was from craigslist because he f'd up the original trying to make it into a cowl and the pony is there because I can.



See? Not shiny but it still has a clear coat on it. You only get one shot at doing it right because dirt/runs/dry spots can't be buffed out... 'cause it's flat. Ask how I know...

I don't know of any paint specials running now; there's the Maaco on Nevada/Garden of the Gods or off of Platte by the Shitadel Mall, but it may cost just the same anywhere you go. Paint's expensive.
