Does anyone have a general idea of how much a full paint job is?
glossy black is one of the hardest if not the hardest to get looking perfect..most any body especially a used one will have small imperfections that the gloss black will make stand out.mile deep gloss black is beautiful to me but be prepared to pay if you take it to someone that can actually make it perfectI was wanting to get it all done by a professional and one solid black color. No body work needs to be done. I have no idea how I would do it myself so that's why I wanna get it professionally done and im gonna keep this jeep for as long as possible so I want it to be perfect!
shopline has the clear coat in it already.. its a one step process,which makes it cheaper. You don't have to paint then clear coat, saves time. But over time it will fade/not age as well as the higher end paint. For my trail rig,it was a good solution to get new color on it with out breaking the bank.What's the difference between the PPG shopline and the pro stuff?
if you have factory paint then it will be urethane.you can top coat it with other urethane or enamel with no problem but if for some reason you decide to use lacquer then you should prime itI went to school for auto body, and worked at a shop for a while. I can tell you a shop is going to charge you a few thousand dollars to paint it. Go with a base clear, a single stage doesn't hold up very long (fades fast) . They will most likely primer the whole jeep due to the paints may not be compadable (paints will attack each other)
there are many paint suppliers on ebay but I would advise finding a local paint supplier that will take the time to listen to what you are wanting to do and guide you..for instance,you can buy clear for 50 bucks a gallon that will give you a new car appearance or you can buy $80 a quart clear that will give you show quality depth and shine..a good supplier can direct youI am gonna paint it myself. Whatre some links to some nice primer, black pain, and clear coat?
