I just got these pictures sent to me. The painter got the car on Monday and here's where it's at today (Wednesday).
It's not cut back yet but, that sure is a pretty color. Once the white interior is in there....... This is going to be SWEET!

Looks great! I think I know that shop. Did they used to be in Escondido and moved to Valley Center around 2003? If so, they painted my Karmann Ghia. beerchug.gif

Yes, we spent weeks prep'ing it for paint. It was basically rolled in, the painter masked it up and shot it.
He'll cut it back and buff it out too.

It's possible, I'm not sure thought. I know they've been around for a long time. They are just pat Metcalf, on Washington now.

Looks sweet. How much did they charge you?

I love a blue car.

I told my painter I was in no hurry, use my car
as fill in work and I wouldn’t call and bother him.
Car stayed there for about a year which I was fine with
me because it emptied a bay in my garage for the winter.
3 years later and it is still apart...

We did 100% of the body and paint prep work over the past 4 years so, it was literally rolled off of the trailer and the painter did his magic. Including cutting it back and buffing it out.
That being said, for labor and materials on the paint job, it will be right around $3500.00'ish.
I haven't picked it up yet, traveling on business this week so I have not received the final bill but that was the estimate.

I was worried about that as well but, I am fortunate enough to have a retired father who I pay to work on the car so, he's motivated to help me put it back together.
A total god send, that's for sure plus it's nice to work on a project with my dad.

@mmichalik - that is a nice set up, send him down to OC once you are done!

You should go out and buy a lottery ticket as you are one lucky guy to find a painter like that,I think most painters hate the prep work if they don't have staff to do it for them so the work slows.
By the way that paint look fantastic beerchug.gif .
