Lightbulb ** Rules for Paint, Body and Detailing Subforum**

This Subforum has been needing an update so here are the rules in order to maintain, organize and update this subforum.

1. There will be only ONE MAIN THREAD that will be stickied that will list all of the local Autobody PAINT Providers. This means, if you are a body man / painter / mobile paint-repair / shop owner - PM Me and I will input your information in the MAIN thread. HERE

2. There will be only ONE MAIN THREAD that will be stickied that will list all of the local Automotive DETAILING providers. This mean, if you are an independent detailer / own your own detail business / mobile detailer - PM Me and I will input your information in the MAIN thread. HERE

3. There will be only ONE MAIN THREAD that will be stickied that will list all of the local POWDERCOATING Providers. This means, if you are a independent / shop owner - PM Me and I will input your information in the MAIN thread. HERE

ZERO tolerance regarding spamming the forum with "services" ("PM me for $200 dollar complete paint job") or ("$50 dollar detail") - any such thread WILL be deleted immediately -

__________________________________________________ __________________________________________________


4. INQUIRIES - questions like "How much can I get my 99 Civic painted?" is WAAAAY too open ended and other than your flat rate places like ECONO / MAACO ect that will paint your car for $199, the vehicle would need to be seen (preferably in person) in order to give an accurate estimate. Anyone can say, I'll paint it for $500 plus materials but that again rings that "you get what you paid for" bell.

__________________________________________________ __________________________________________________

5. EXPECTATION - When you are inquiring about a paint job, there are MANY factors that effect the pricing / estimating of the job:
a.) Size of job (spoiler, mirror, front end, complete car, full paint incl. door jambs engine bay ect)

b1.) Materials (Prep materials inc - Sand paper, Plastic overspray cover, Paper, Tape, Jamb tape, Trim/lift tape, ect)
b2.) Chemicals (prep wipe, adhesion promoter, thinner, reducers, hardeners)
b3.) Paint Type (Single stage, Base Coat/Clearcoat, Three-Stage, Candy, Chameleon)
b4.) Paint Color (REDS,YELLOWS,ORANGES,PEARLS are typically 2-3 times expensive than BLACKS, BLUES, SILVERS ect)
b5.) Clear Coat (can range from basic non-UV 1-2 coats brand to quality Glamour UV 3-5 coats)

c.) Repairs (scratches, dings, dents, minor collision, major collision (require use of industrial frame machines ect)

d.) WetSand and Buff (usually NOT standard unless there are some minor imperfections ie dirt specs, runs)

all of the above mentioned needs to be taken into account when an estimate is given/taken.

Again, Anyone can say "Just bring me the car and I will do it for X amount of dollars" = JUST MAKE SURE YOU HAVE EVERYTHING IN WRITING - PROTECT YOURSELVES - I know dozens of "joes" out there with a paint gun and a compressor and think they can FOOSE out your ride but they either a.)come up with the need of more money or else OR b.) will take your money and give you a crappy job that will require DOUBLE what a regular shop would charge you because now they have to sand through the crap and fix runs, crappy bodywork ect......
Ask for references / pictures / proof...ect....

MORE TO COME.....

Also, I have noticed that there are numerous threads that are inquiring about estimates, "how much it would cost to fix blah blah blah", or "what can be done with blah blah blah"....... BUT NO PICTURES...............!!!!!

If you post a thread INQUIRING about something, YOU MUST POST PICTURES........
