Paint job recommendations?

So, it's time to repaint the 78T in original cardinal red. Can anyone recommend a good body shop in the Seattle area? A few dings need to be smoothed out and I'm not even gonna try doing bodywork.

Well, we both have seen their work and its amazing. I'm sure its not cheap, but if you wanted cheap you would be going to maaco or earl schieb.

I hear community colleges are a good place to go to get cheap stuff done, you only have to pay for materials.

Anyone who saw the red 96 that was 'blacked out' that showed up at our picnic for awhile, that was a maaco paint job I guess.

Yeah, I'm shotgunning this out there to get an idea of where to start asking. I don't think getting a cheapo job will pay in the long run, so I'll look into Scanwest. Are there any more Morleys out there with a recommendation?

if your daring enough you can try the Tremclad (rustoleum) method... i painted my hood with it and was really happy with the results. Body work is easy as long as you have time and patience... i spend about 15 hours on the hood from start to finish, stripping paint, welding in trim holes, rough sand/bondo, high build primer, more bondo, paint and lost of wet sanding.

heres a link giving a good example of it...

Sorry in advance for the Volvo content

here some pictures of my results:

a flat hood 242 with E-codes? quite the rarity. I saw a flat hood 242 turbo in the junk yard about a year ago, the thing was damn near flawless!

yeah... there might be another one on the way no e-codes though... I just sold that car to my bro


back to the topic:
If willing to take a chance it well worth giving the Tremclad/rustoleum method a try it can always be easily painted over by a job body so if your not happy with it

k i need to stop thread jacking.... but colours that are easier to work with are the darker ones, except black. It all depends what your painting over... if its primer then you should be good with any one of tremclad/rustoleum/ other enamals colour. I believe there is one product at home depot that is same as rustoleam except they can mix a colour for you.

sorry again for the threadjacking

his truck is black now and half primered and i realize that would be a hard color to get to turn out well. I want him to paint it dark gray, we'll primer the rest first obviously.
