car's coming along. Just my $.02. Have them do the doors and paint the lower door panels seperate, and then assemble the pcs after they are individually painted. If the doors under the skirt pannels are left "raw" they will rust. Like I said just my $.02

The suspense is killing me ;)
If you don't mind my asking, how much? My father has an 87 325ic and both he and I would like to restore it....

Can't wait to see it.

Well...since i'm not even close to being done I would have to guess in the $12,000 to $15,000 range. As soon as the car is finished it is going to be apraised. Well i'm going to the bodyshop now to see if she it painted yet so I might have pics up tomorrow.

When you said to "restore" your car I thought you were redoing the whole car (total repaint of the car, engine work, wheels, interior work)! LOL! Well the installation of the body kit and paint (with minor body work and painting engine bay) will cost me anywhere between $2000 to $3000. I would have to say more towards the $3000 range since i'm installing the body kit.

Well to answer your question of just doing a respray I would have to say any where between $1000 to $2000. I'm going to tell you from past experiance that if you spend a little more now, you WON'T regret it later. I had my car resprayed last year by another bodyshop in St. Catharines and it cost $1000. Well lets just say it was lacking in quality after a little while. So bring it down to Unique and talk to Frank (tell him that Dave and Randy sent ya!). Good luck!

L8R,
Dave
