    looks excellent, how much do you charge for a paint job of this caliber, plus dent removal?

    i have friends in north carolina, i could come up and hang out while my car were painted...

    That is a very good paint job. Do you paint it yourself? Very impressed. I cant see any flaws

    Chet, has your fender been replaced because it looks in your avatar that the door and fender dont match perfectly.

    yes, my fender doesn't match perfectly, and its driving me crazy.

    i definitely need to spend some money on paint and to have some small dents removed.

    colorpros- I've already been burned once in Dallas, and that was through a good reference too. :(

    paragus- Not bad, I might just do that for the CRX. What are you painting it with, exactly?

    Did any of you guys check out the SCC issue with the "Project Silvia" which they painted with krylon flat black, it turned out lookin pretty nice.

    ColorPros - Man here in California it is way expensive, man i wish you were out here... The cheapest price i have been quoted to repaint my 89 civic is 3200... :( So I think my pops and I are going to paint the car our selves.

    I use Dupont,sometimes PPG.Im feeling that flat black.We are fixing to do one.But we are going to use black base coat w/ a self flattening clear.That way you still get uv protection.But made props on the rattle can job at least you took the time to sand and prep the car.I see you used that 3m hard edge tape for lifting the molding edge.Sweet. :worthy: I love that stuff.I use 3m compounds and glazes for those who asked.

    Werd, that Krylon Flat Black Silvia was prety nice, I was thinkin about doin that for my hatch, it's faded now, so for a 50 dollar paint job, it'd be a damn good improvement.
    Colorpros, where in Fl is your shop at?

    werd mang... thanx, i was looking into doing that way too, but i live in a apartment complex and i cant use a spray gun the compressor would be way to loud. Im not even allowed to work on my car in the garage (not that it doesnt stop me) but doing that paint job was risky enough it smelled like straight up paint in the garage for a few days. and i love that 3m tape, its just sick. And as far as what i used to answer your question chet. I used Camoflauge Krylon Ultra-Flat Black. Im sure regular ultra flat black will do the same thing. I just got the Camo one cuz it was cheaper.lol. You know you'll have the camo one when u see it because it says it real big and there is a camo hummer on the can. My paint jobsTotal cost $8. But thats because i already had all the tape and sandpaper. all i had to do was buy the paint.
