Whelp, I have another update regarding Project 23's paint job. The wifey pooh has been doing research on the overall painting process and she is not a happy camper. To make a long story short, she doesn't want me exposed to paint fumes even if I have a respirator and ventilation. There is no half azzing a make shift spray booth using box fans to get the air flowing.
So with this we are going to fund a paint job which will max out at $1500. So with that I have scheduled to meet with the owner of a shop about 5 minutes from my house. I have met with him in the past to get a quote, but I want to make sure I know what I'm getting for the money. I also want to see what kind of prep work I can do to keep the cost down.
So with that being said, I guess that my trip to the paint shop will not be happening.
These kinds of paint jobs can come out really good - I've done a couple of them. Look around for a one-day shop that does good work, and get the best quality paint they offer. It'll come out nice, and shooting it yourself isn't that much cheaper...
