You guys keep talking about spindles on these trucks. What is a spindle and what does it do (other than spark a lot of comments)
Edit: never mind, I googled past all of the woodworking items and found out what they are on the automotive side before one of you yahoos told me to google it. I guess my question is why do those always seem to be the main topic of interest outside of the cage?
Because you don't want to land dart and have your wheels fly into space...
Anybody have experience with the local Maaco, or like 1 Day paint and body?
Seriously need to get the Nova painted. We've had quotes at $5000-$6000, and we've had shops straight up tell us they wont paint it because its too old.
I have asked numerous people if they know any good places to get a classic car a decent paint job in Vegas, and they all say no. I asked the guys at Vegas 4x4, and we asked the gun guys next door. They said if you dont want a shot paint job, then use Maaco.
Here's the thing, She'll spend 2 or 3 grand no problem. If she gets a $6000 or more (heaven forbid something show quality) paint job, I guarantee she's not going to drive it. Body needs stripped and painted. There is 1 minor spot of rust that needs addressed, but honestly could probably be sanded and filled as its not through the metal.
Anybody got any places to go, or people that paint cars in their garage or anything?
Several of my customers have old (like '30s-'50s) cars and hot rods and used Frank's Auto Body http://www.franksautobody.com/contact/ for their paint work. I don't have any experience with them 1st hand though.
Ace bros seems to do great work they are across the street from our warehouse. I know the reason you are getting crazy quotes is because of the age of the car. A lot of people are shocked to find out their perfect car is a huge bucket of bondo. That is why you get crazy prices because until the paint is off no one knows what is under it.
