Jeep Paint

Hello painters. I'm in need of some advice here about the finish of my jeep. The po didn't like the original color of the jeep and therefore decided it'd be a great idea to rattle can it. It looks terrible now and I bought because other than that it looks awesome. I'm in the market for a respect now and at this point I've had a few quotes. I had one at 480$ at Econo Paint and then 1300$ at Maaco. Maaco is charging me 800$ Of labor because they said they cannot just sand it they have to take it back to bare metal. Is this true? I don't wanna spend 800$ on something unnecessary and such. Would sanding not do? The rattle can was simply sprayed directly on top of the clear coat. What should I do guys need the help!

Both estimates seem very low for a quality paint job. If I ever get my Jeep " re painted" I will be going with color matched Linex. And the builders corner is likely not the best place for this thread. I would contact an admin and see if they can move it for you.

I never take one to bare metal unless there is rust in an area and then only in the rusty areas..I would take the spray bomb paint off..but as the guy said above 1300 is not an expensive paint job..I wouldn't do it for that

My guess is they're worried that the new paint and reducer will cause your cheap spray can stuff to crinkle up and lift. I've seen it many, many times. I don't think it needs to go right down to bare steel, but at minimum the entire jeep needs to be sanded down to the original OEM paint. Maybe their way of removing a lot of paint means wire wheeling the whole jeep and for that there's very little middle ground, it's going to be all the way to steel..

I used this product recently and it did a good job of removing the top layer of paint without removing the base layer. May be worth a a shot if you don't mind doing some prep yourself. Try it in an inconspicuous area and see if it removes the spray paint.

I just came back to the computer and looked at the link I posted..I didn't realize there was more than one product from that company. This is the actual product I used.
