  • Paint cost.

    Ok.

    I dropped my car off at European Motor Car Works, and they came back with the following quote.

    Fix the corrosion at the rear end and respray (from top of left wheel arc to the right one) $500-800. (Including fixing some dents while they are at it.)

    Above plus paint down the yellow nose cone in BRG, leaving a yellow lip and add a yellow stripe going from the lip over the hood to the scuttle: $1500

    Complete repaint in black with yellow lip and strip: $4000-6000.

    The variation in the last price depends on how much work I want in straitghtening out all the little dents and dings the car has picked up since I bought it. If I want it as when it left the factory, I am looking at the upper range of the interval.

    Preparation on my end includes removal of rear fenders (took me one hour), tenex fasteners, windscreen and exhaust. Nothing major. No need to disassemble the front or rear suspension.

    We reached the conclusion that I will go for the corrosion fix only, and then turn the car in for a complete repaint once the Duratec is installed and the new hood is in place.

      What, you are paying money to remove honestly acquired patina and battle scars?

        I am merely trying to acheive the same level of anal retentiveness to details that we see in one of our member's aluminum/carbon fibre car. Everytime I see it I say to myself "I want my car to be that perfect.". Then I usually drop a wrench on the bonnet to remove myself one step further from my goal.

          Magnus, WAIT, dont fix those dents...golf balls are more aerodynamic with dimples...you just need to collect a few more and you will be SUPA-FAST!
