Hey OP,

Where'd you get it done and how much was it?

Sincerely,

Antony

I hope you're a better painter than photographer

Looks awesome - and like mine

What kind of paint did you use?

And no SiR - I have buddy who had plasti-dipped his car flat black. After he saw mine (in John Deere Blitz Black), and found out the price, he bought a bunch of paint and had it redone.

yea cell phone pics suck. going to buy a camera.the cost was just the paint i did all the body work and my brother is a painter. I used sherwin-williams paints single stage cost was around 700$ had to paint it twice. we practiced on the bumpers to get the matte correct. but when we painted the car it was real hot out and some spots the top paint dryed faster then the bottom and we had small air bubbles and the matte was to shiny so we waited for cooler weather and it came out great. we painted it at fix auto in stoney creek
