I need to paint a salvage teg I just got and my 99 Lude, anyone has good experience with a shop in the Twin Cities area.

I got a cousin the got his drag car painted a few years back and they f_%Ken suck. He sent it back a few times but after a while it was like fu#$K it.

So I just dont want any place with no skills. I dont need a Import Showoff paint job but just good enough for the average Joe to say "clean car".

Seriously the most I'm willing to spend is $1500 on each car, they have no major body work needed just a few small dings here and there. So is 1500 going to be enough for a decent paint job or do i need like 3 grand or so.

I have no knowlege in auto painting prices at all because I've never got my car painted, and my cousin supposely got "hooked" up so I can't compare the price.

Any help would be great.

I saw a place on payne that do custom paint and work but they're mostly into hotrod. I just don't like going into a domestic place that hate your honda. There use to be a place on maryland and whitebear that does work on heads and blocks so I ask them if they could steam clean my motor and do a 3 angle valve job but the f%@ker said he wont touch an import period. I know to a lot of shop " buisness is buisness" but why go if they won't even take pride in doing work on something they got no respect for.

Looking through the yellow pages I found plenty but whos to say they do good work thats why I need word of mouth advertisement.

Any more info peeps just holla back.........and oh yeah for peaple who know, is a $1500 paint job good enough.

CK Imports is located on Frost Ave. in Maplewood (on the left side going east). They do a pretty good job, I've seen some of the cars they've painted before. And they're not bad on the price. I wish I still had the phone number but yeah. Just letting ya know:)

Oh yeah I know where that is, but I didn't know it was called that, I'll give them a call, thanks bro.

Hopefully 1000-1500 bucks is enough to make my car look good.

Umm, thats not gonna be enough unless you plan on painting the car yourself. Youre gonna need at least 2-3 grand for a good paint job that wont chip or peel especially here in minnesota. If you want a cheap paint job, then better get macco, their shit is cheap and you get what you pay for. I dont think there are any shops in town that I'd trust to paint my car, I'd let my cousin do it since hes done a few nice cars alread but hes always busy.

Dam 2-3 grand, that's a whole lotta money.

I'm now thinking about selling my car so I don't think I would want to spend that much and then sell the car.

How about how much will it cost for a good enough paintjob so the buyer would be satistfy with it. I mean I don't want to rip anyone off and have the paint start peeling on them after a couple months like what happened to me.

I just want a good enough so I will get a good money back for the car so I could put down on a brand new car.
