Progress report

All the trim holes are filled. About half are primed and smooth enough to paint.

This body work stuff is hard work. So far I'm into it for about $50 in materials and 14 hours labor.

I'll try to get a pic soon.

I priced paint today.

Maaco has a $200 special.

Both use acrylic enamel.

I had a VW painted at Earl Schieb. Paint was cr@p (chipped very easily) and they left runs in places. You get what you pay for.

Well, Earl just quoted me $400. The $260 special is only good for the colors they stock.
I think I'll DIY.
