Haku said:Very nice - have you had it repainted?
I know what you mean! I dropped off my car yesterday at the dealer yesterday to be fully stripped and repainted in Obsidian Black - it was originally two tone brilliant silver which has grown on me but, it just wasn't quite right. I'll be picking her up next weekend and am looking forward to seeing the end result!Charlie V12 said:Yes. The car was original 199 Blau-swartz metallic. I have full restaured the car, and then I painted the car in 197 Obsidan metallic outside and inside. (I know that its "criminal" and "wrong" to change color from original to another color on a classic car like this, but i dont care cause I am never gonna sell this car anyway. I will keep this car as long as I live)
Almost 6 months!? Wow - that is a long time.Charlie V12 said:I delivered my car in January, and get it back in June last year. I only used proffesional people/companys for the restored and paintwork.
And yes Haku, it was very expensive
Yes, but I did everything fromHaku said:Almost 6 months!? Wow - that is a long time.
Mine's taking about a week - that's a full strip including everything (inside sunroof, inside doors, inside boot etc.) except the engine bay too. These guys are charging about $4000 (US$) all up which I think is quite reasonable, but I don't have anything to compare it to - what did your guys charge you?
