I recently imported a 73 Tii from California, great mechanical and body condition - needs paint. Here's what I'm lookin to do

Interior out, windows out
Paint removed
Sandblast, repair as necessary
Paint plus trim installation

Current quote is $8K for a top notch job. Can someone recommend a shop they've used for a quality paint job?

Here's a pic of my car from the day I picked it up from Buffalo...the Inka O2 belongs to a 2002faq board member who took delivery of the car for me

If you want top quality, European Auto Body is the place to go. *th-up* *th-up* *th-up*
Unfortunately, their prices also reflect their image...$$$...be prepared to spend some good coin.
IMO, it was worth it at the end of the day. They do things right.

See Emilio (416-679-8722)
They are located on Steeles just west of Hwy 27 on the south side.

They did my E12 7 years ago. This image was taken at last years Pilgrimage held in Sheffield Ont. This years Pilgrimage will be held on August 20th.

What kind of paint are you going to paint it with?

I have a shop that does fantastic work, and if i bring you in with me, they'll give you a good price too. They're far from free, but IMO about as good of a deal on a great paintjob as you can get.

shoot me a PM if need be
