Just finished this Stang. Had some issues with the new paint that the owner wanted cleared up. Orange peel, sanding marks and some paint defects that the body shop let go. 3 full days worth of work for me.
Here's the before shot, doesn't look so bad, does it?
A little closer look reveals some problems
You can see just how much orange peel this paint has...
And of course being black it has some scratches and swirls...
That kinda sucks to spend thousands with the paint/body shop, then have to pay again to make it "right". It looks great, but unless it was a helluva deal on the paint work, I'd be a little pissed.
Excellent point..................BUT, while they failed to do the finish work properly, they seem to have done a great job on the prep. If that car had been wavey, there wuold have been anything even Nick could have done. It looks awesome now!
Just remember, you get what you pay for! People always seem to want to take the lowest or one of the low bids when it comes to a big ticket item like a paint job. There's nothing wrong with that, but just don't expect quality work with a cheap price tag. I was able to save this paint job, but like Rotortrash said, at least they got the prep work right, otherwise it wouldn't look as good.
Very nice Nick. Car is sharp, who would have guessed it had 500 HP!
408 stroker, AFR heads, built 9" rear end, 5 speed tranny(not sure which one). I had to deliver the car from the shop in Haltom City to the owners home in Southlake. The car drives GREAT! I really didn't get on it, but could tell it had some balls to it. Very stout drive train!
