    UPDATED 10-1214

    Hey guys,
    I have talked to a few guys around here that have been interested in having some fiberglass and what not painted to match their truck or SUV. I thought I would make a thread for it so more people knew that there was a good place to get their glass or panels painted without paying crazy amounts.
    I will do the prices on a job by job basis, but they won't vary to much. If you have something that you want painted let me know. It would be something that I would do after hours at my hydrographics shop. Usual turn around times would be about 4-6 days. If you have big gouges and scratches in the fiberglass, I can take them out with some body work but that will add to the cost and time it takes to complete.
    All of my materials are formulated to last for many years with excellent UV protection. All parts will be sanded and buffed for a smooth as glass finish.
    For pricing shoot me a PM. I will try and look for some pictures of a few things that have been painted.

    Entire trucks are hard to paint in my place. The room gets quite tight with a whole vehicle in there with all my water transfer equipment. And the time it takes away from all my other stuff that is going on is to much.

    $100 minimum. I know you say you will do the prep work but honestly I would end up doing some too so that I know my paint will stick. You are looking more in the $125 range for paint, clear, and final buffing.

    As much as what I payed for them. They'll fix some scratches on them and do a clear coat as well.

    Sounds about right. Fenders are anywhere between $300-400.

    Actually yes. Most of my paint is a solvent based PPG and a PCL clear. Some of the custom colors I usually get in a water base. All factory colors are PPG though.
