Thinking about getting the truck painted. Advise please

I'm thinnking about getting me 95 repainted. I'm putting new front fenders on it since they are rusty. Other than that the truck no rust. I'd like to paint the whole thing so it looks fresh again. Where is a good place to get this done?

Re: Thinking about getting the truck painted. Advise please

Check with some larger local body shops (dealers,large independants)most collision repair shops won't do all-over refinish but some time a tech may do work at home or they may recomend a shop to you. Check place out where ever you decide. Look for clean place(shows care)ask to see some of their work(not just pics)be sure to get all moldings,handles,bumpers,etc removed. Sorry don't kno any shops up your way. Remember as a general rule you get what you pay for. A $800 paint job isn't gonna be as good as a $3000 job

06 F350 FX4 ccsb all the way. Basic 6.0 fix kit,delete,studs, gaskets. PPE programmer, S&B intake,custom 4"exaust.6"BDS lift 37s. Wrecked... goin bigger,then faster. 10.5" with 40s. Will need help with faster wen time comes

To bad your not in AZ. I'd hook you up. Just get quotes and look at some of their work. Good overall will not be cheap if it's done right. Good luck

Well the paint on the truck now isn't bad. it probably would just need to be sanded and reclear coated.

Re: Thinking about getting the truck painted. Advise please

are you in a hurry to get it painted?

easy way is get a phone book,start calling around and see who will do a all over paint job,then go check those shops out.with most shops doing ins work,they tend to stay away from repaints.
if you find a shop that will do it be specific about what you want done.also see what brand materials they will be using.

look around your area for car clubs,truck clubs,and custom car/truck shops they may know a shop or an employee that will do it on the side

you may find a shop that will do it,when they are slow with ins work but it may take them 2-3 months to complete

maybe this will give you some ideas,or help
