Group Buy: Paint!

Hey All,

So who all is looking for new paint? I know that at least Michael, Justin, and myself are all planning on getting new paint fairly soon, and I think Sean may want some too. Anyone else? If we can get a group rate, that would be sweet! It doesn't have to be anything huge like a whole car, but if you need like a fender or a bumper touched up, we may as well add that in as well.

Regards,
Matt

Matt.
Have you considered vinyl? My wife apparently wants her Escape black, even though she chose a freaking WHITE one (>_<) so I talked to a shop that does it. A full body wrap on a small SUV was between 500-700 in material, and about another 1200-1500 in labor. 2200.00 isn't really that bad, plus as an added bonus for her if we decide to sell it in 10 years the vinyl can be removed, adhesive residue cleaned off, the truck can be cut and buffed, and it's still got a beautiful White Suede paint job. Just throwing that out there.

Do you mean I group buy on materials for painting or getting a group rate from a shop to have cars sprayed? If you mean materials I'm going to need some paint to do my bumpers at some point this summer.

I actually have, but if I go that route, I want to do something like this:

And yeah, this is a group buy for a body shop to do the work. I have been told that Gig Harbor Auto Body does good work.

I have actually considered doing a medium grey vinyl with a diamond plate pattern. Nothing says "pure pwnage" like Built Ford Tough grey diamond plate. But then the sun comes out for its weekly 8 minutes... and that Red Candy looks so good...

I think that matte white or black would look sick. I considered doing it on my old camaro.

Vynle wraps are 2-4 thousand and not really worth it in my opinion. But two each their own.

I'll being got for the dodge viper red on my car

Eh.. she wants a satin black wrap, she'll get it. Dammit. I lowered it about 2-2.5" for her, removed one of the two resonators and replaced the giant muffler with a Magnaflow. She has a 2.5l AWD. Eventually it will get turbo. Right now I'm working on wheels, but not too sure between 18's and 20's. I like the black Artillery 181s, but it matters not what I like.

The only thing I put my foot down on was her stupid Hello Kitty exhaust tip. I bought it for her but it's NOT going on this. She'll have to use it on her B2.

But the cost to paint it satin black vs a wrap, as well as the ability to reverse, is making this particular situation a no-brainer.
