I need a good touchup guy. recomendations?
how is park place bodywerks?
I can do touch-ups. If you need an actual repaint, the only place I recommend in the Dallas area is Mister Collision.
www.mistercollision.com Absolutely first rate work.
scott, so here's the deal. my rear door was hit agains a pole and a small chunk of paint came off on the edge of the door.
excuse the shitty pics
I'd like to get this fixed asap. i consider my car to be in pretty good condition (im sure you agree) so id like the repair to look as good as possible. unfortunatelly price is somewhat of an issue. if a complete repaint is $500 more than a touch up and will only look a little better, ill go with a touch up.
How well do you think a touch up will work? I've been in contact with tom from superiortouchup (http://www.superiortouchup.com)
he can come out tomorrow and do touchup for around $50. or he can repaint the area for around $250.
I know touching up is not your specialty, but if you think you can do as good a job as this guy claims(mixing paint to colormatch) i'd rather have you do it.
what is your recommendation for this situation?
I'd really advise against getting an onsite repaint. Go with the touch up option. If you need it ASAP, go with the other guy, it would be next week at the earliest that I'd have time. I do have access for a couple more weeks to a huge touch-up kit.
its grinding at me, so i want to do it as soon as i can. ill let him take care of it tom. if its absolutely horrible ill get a repaint.
do touchups come out ok if you know what youre doing?
since its right on the edge like that yes! you can hide it pretty good if your careful. i do a lot of door edges like thatand 95% of the time.. it turns out well unless you stick your face to it. the other 5%, it was a hard color to match.. but red is easy.
go to your local dealership or find a paint supply store and get yourself touchup in a bottle (tube with a pen at the end and brush). attempt it yourself very carefully and see if you like it.
You cant wait a few days for quality work? Thats a shitty way of doing things man.
huh? if you read above you will see that i have a person who specializes in this coming today.
i am not doing this myself. i know ill fuck up and make it look 10x worse. id rather pay the $50 and have a professional do it
so the guy came out and did it, and i am completely unsatisfied. i think it looks horrible.
the color matches pretty well but the texture is bothering me. will sanding it a bit with a very fine sandpaper make it more uniform?
