I got my truck painted for $1000. I did most of the prep work myself, sanded is all down, removed all the trim etc. I had a pretty bad cumple at the end of one of my back fenders, he fixed that, primed most of it (I primed the areas I repaired). The truck was in not too bad of contition, it just had the early 90's peeling paint problem. It's a '90 F-150 Reg Cab long box. I had it painted with '97 Ford Midnight Blue, and clearcoated. He actually did a really good job, and I was pretty impressed. I found him in the Bargain Finder and he seemed like a good honest guy. I should have some pictures somewhere if you would like to see the results.

Just my 2 cents Hope it helps

Jason

Was there any dust trapped in the paint, runs, or orange peel? (just wondering if he has a good downdraft booth).
