Good quality paint and body work is not cheap by any means anymore. It usually comes down to three choices..
1. Do your own
2. Have the work done at a “regular” collision shop
3. Spend a little more and have it done right at a custom shop
It all comes down to a matter of where one’s priorities are I guess and how deep the pocket book is…..me, I pretty much been doing my own mechanical & electrical work so saved a lot there. Just not a body or paint guy and too old to start now…LOL.This van is pretty much my last “build” so wanted to get it right. it’s pretty much a lost art and getting harder to find a shop that does it right. Still have the interior to do yet but it’s getting there.

BVRPLZR saying the color is "Sick" means it as a compliment, not Sick as in gross.

I love the color, as well! Looks great! Where did you find the color?

The color is a stock 2020 Cadillac color Deep Garnet. First saw it on a 66 Chevy pick-up truck at a show early summer of last year. When I first saw it the truck was parked in the shade and it looked black but after the sun came out I walked by it again and the deep purple pearl really “popped”. The only thing I asked the painter to do was make it a bit darker assuming he would just add a bit of black to the base color coat but he explained it would be better to lay down a base coat of black first which he did and it came out perfect……one coat of the black, three of the color coats and 4 coats of clear…..
