Paint shops

Anyone know of any quality paint shops in the austin area that do quality work with half way decent prices?

nice, and "half way decent prices" do not go hand and hand. Im not trying to be rude, but good work is never cheap.

What kind of car are you going to paint, and how bad is it?

1966 mustang, clean straight car, no rust, dents etc...

Will be primer when it goes to the shop... I have all the equipment to do it myself I just have not painted one before and would rather pay someone...

When i mean cheap and nice, i didn't mean like a maaco job with cheap... i'm looking to spend around 2000ish for the paint job

2000 for paint and labor or just labor? It's in the final prime and ready for paint?

Ha. nevermind about austin paint shops I've been informed by like 5 people that there are no paint shops in austin worth painting the car.

in the end price isn't much of an issue, i just want to get it done right so now i've changed my price for the job to 3-5k
