I did a bare metal, windows out respray on my 85' 300TD a few years ago. I did all the stripping of the 4-5 old paint jobs down to bare metal, cut out a few small spots of rust and welded in new metal. Then did any body work needed and primed it. Then dropped it off at my buddy's where he blocked it out one last time, checked my body work and give it a beautiful paint job of Cypress Green Metallic. If I were to pay to have all the work done between the two of us, the price would have been close to $15k, so your quote of $7k is a deal if he does it right.
