Just wanted to tell everyone that I'm getting my car painted as I write
this. We took it to the body shop on Saturday, and they said that it'd
probably be ready by Friday, and I am all too excited. I am getting it
painted black again. I found a picture of a car much like mine, and this is
what my car should look like once I get it back and get new wheels:
I hope you don't mind me asking, but, nearly a week in the paint shop, whats this going to cost you?
I was quoted $1560. Bring on the sizzle.
Wow. I'm going to be painting my project car soon and just the supplies are going to cost me close to a grand. Good deal.
Agreed. Of course, your project car probably doesn't yet have paint. My car already has paint, and it's in good condition. It's just that I wanted dints knocked out and dings repaired, as well as having an uber-fresh coat of paint. I'm quite excited to see it.
when/if I get a bodykit for my Grand Am, I'm gonna get it painted a Midnight blue mietallic with black metallic flames... :mrgreen:
Grr. Don't waste the money on that car for a body kit and paint. I'd bank that cash and save it for something I'd really want to spend it on.
Sounds like that is something he really wants to spend it on...
I'm getting tiored of people thinking that making a car faster is the ONLY valid thing to spend money on. I mean, the $1500 you're spending could make your car quite a bit faster, and the new paint won't. But the new paint will make the car look better to you, right? I'm sure that's how he feels about the body kit.
Thank you Chris. The body kit comes first because I just don't like the
whole idea of a sleeper. Yes, it's fun, but I like apearances too (Hence
all the neon the Beretta had). There is a lot more stuff I can do to this
car rather than my old one, but that'll come later on.
BTW, make sure you actually get pics of YOUR car when it gets back from teh paint shop. :thumbs:
...and this is where I disagree with Satty. I LOVE the sleeper concept - its so appealing to me. I think i'll make my next car a sleeper. :twisted:
The pictures will be on the web the second I get them. I have a question- does anyone know of a picture-hosting website where I could put them (for free, obviously)? I didn't mean to sound like an ass about the body kit, it's just that I think that Grand Ams are a little unreliable to be putting lots of money into. But whatever you want, bizzle.
Great for hosting pictures to post on a forum or whatever you want. Very simple and fast as well.
Hmmm, seems fishy. I went to the website, and it appears that I have to pay for them to host my pictures. Like I said, suggestions that are free.
thats what I use, and its awesome! :thumbs:
