Any decent paint shop can match your color.
ditto on that, how much??????SpeedR said:I have the same problem How much should it cost to repaint my Supra with same renessaince red it came with??
thanks for all the infoYellowToyotaSupra said:I worked at a body shop. . . painted my car. . ." Actually, why the hell is stock paint just so much better?". . . Because it was painted from the factory. . .factory jobs are always better done and they were baked on. with repainting a car, or a pice of a car, you already have paint and clearcoat on it so you have to paint over that. Getting it to stick: sand it and scuff it well!!!! this is key to the good paint job! . . . also use adhesion promoter!. . .where ever you go, see if they have booths, and if so, if they can bake. . .mine was baked - it stops it from gettting oarnge peely(much smoother finish usually bakces between 130 & 150 deg. F) and makes it stick better.
as for how much it costs. . .if it's the same color, it will be a lot cheeper because they won't have to do the door jams and take off the doors and do the back sides of them, - they won't have to take off the hood and paint the underside of it,. . .or the rear hatch etc. . . . if it's the same color, it shuld not be that relatively hard. . .just know what the body shop has that yo take it to, and know what they use! . . .any questions e mail me at [email protected]
oh yeah, and matching the color, . . .any paint shop can do it if they have all the colors and can mix. . .just a few drops off can change the whole tone of the color. . .so, make sure they mix it PERFECTLY, and sometimes there are variations to the paint codes. . .sometimes you use yur vin # to varify witch one it is- just get the right one!
If you want the BEST, or certainly one of the top 5 in TEXAS, bring your car to Mario's Motors here in Houston. They are a very high-end car dealership and body shop. They are very expensive, but most of the guys here will attest that they are probably the best you'll find. A same color paint job, meaning no engine removal or interior stripping, will probably run you about $4500 there, and it will be show quality. Peter B. (houstont) has plenty experience with their work.WhiteVR4demon said:

Do you all know any reputable paint jobs in TX? If I do get it repainted, I want the best.
