We start our paint jobs at $800 and they look good. I will make a site really quick to host the pictures, because they are too big to put on here of one we just finished, it cost them $1000. I will edit this post in a few minutes with the URL.


EDIT: The URL is http://fairchildautopaint.freeservers.com/ Click Photo Page at the top.

I just posted this because I seen a post from a while back that said to get a decent paint job it will cost you 2-3k. It doesn't have to. We do show jobs for 1500-2000. Show jobs meaning you paint it twice. To be sure there is absolutly zero flaws.

How about some finished pics in daylight, and some close ups? How many coats, and the clear? How thick? More info needed than that.

I thought those pictures were pretty close. I will get some tomorrow I hope of it all put together, tail lights headlight ect. Two coats of clear and as many base as need. The $1000 was all prep and a little body work too.

Yeah, I will try tomorrow. Even though I didn't think much dirt shows in the pictures. There isn't much, but I don't see hardly any in the pictures.

Hard to tell in the lighting, I was looking at the orange peel.

Who did the stripe job on the cat? It looks real!


Seriously though, I'd like to see finished pics, it looks good so far.

All ranges, from far away to up close, that way you can really judge the job
In an up close like that you can really judge it for things like orange peel and stuff

Finished Pictures: COMING SOON! LOL

I will post them tomorrow. I think if we didn't even do the color sanding nd buffing he would have gotten his $1000's worth.
