71 SS/RS CAMARO'S GOT SOME PAINT
#1
Finally got the Camaro painted..I'll be masking out the stripes & laying them down wed or thurs. It's been a while since I bought gallons of paint..Ready for this..shop cost 1 gallon base of 2011 corvette yellow $580.00 ! we applied this over a bright white base $381.00 for a gallon of that..Just the base $961.00 ! no clear, hardener or reducer..Guys, if your planning on painting a car better buckle your self in.. Material costs are going up !

I couldn't believe it ! But a good friend of mine is a sales rep for one of the larger paint distributors & I ordered direct from him so that includes a little better deal. Retail to a normal through the door customer the shop would add 25% to that..Of course all top name products..you just can't skimp on paint..I bet all told total material on this car from stripping to finish including sandpaper tape filler 2k primer $2000.00 .Now you know why it's so expense to have a shop do a show car paint job. Nut's is right !shrug

Thanks KK ... it is what is..read my reply to SM..Better start saving now.. although you can save some coin on the primers & clearshttp://www.southernpolyurethanes.com/ I love their products & everything on my stang is them & rust bullet. My friends shop is ppg & RM But base colors are a different story & that's where they zap you ! I see a z in your icon..I have a post somewhere on here with a pic of mine.
