Who's good? Who's cheap? Who's both?! :shock:

My EA S Sedan is fairly straight, well very straight. Just a few scuffs on the bumpers, and the only noticable bit on the body is the "gravel rash" on the rear drivers guard.

Any idea what I'd be up for, original metallic champagne/mauve with clear?

Anyone got a respray in ACT?

Home of summernats, and no one on a Ford site can tell of their experiences with paint shops here?!

Abel's smash repairs in silva ave in QBN (ask for Shaun,) Peter at Autoart in Mitchell are both excellent and extremely well priced BUT their timetables are a little slow, depends on workload though. There is another place, can't think of the name, opposite toyworld in Barrier st Fyshwick, they do awesome work but they are also getting a good name so I'd imagine that the prices will reflect that.
The first 2 generally do full back to baremetal - with minimal bodywork or rust issues, for about 6-7grand. A good way to go if u want to change colour and get the best warranty for a paint job.
Hope that helps, I find spray shops are a little like the weather, sometimes good sometimes not so good but given the dry spell a lot of them don't have wet weather accidents to fix under insurance so are looking for work.

Cheers for the tips fella's. I've been to the one opposite Toyworld (my 2nd home sometimes!) The dude has a nice orange mustang. I was just after some chassis repair on another car at the time.

This would be the last step in my project, but I like to plan ahead..

I wonder if I could just get the rear drivers guard resprayed.. it's separated from the boot, C pillar, and rear door as far as painting it goes..

Will sus it out, or you's can suggest if there's a cruise on someday soon. (Help me get the ball rolling in the cruise thread!)
