Any pics of the full truck after being painted? For 5000 I would have thought they would remove the hinges before painting the hood.

I'm still waiting for Mr Marchand to comment on how to have a nice paint job......drag it through the trees......sink it in the swamps, and still have it looking new!

Very timely post for me as I am quickly approaching paint for the 110 project.

I had a guy in this weekend to look at and give me a in idea so I will share that with you when I hear the number.

One thing he did ask as he does not have a ton of experience with galvy stuff is what primer and or process you all are using for the galvy parts?

Also what are all of your thoughts on process for paint? Do you paint all the parts individually or paint the insides of parts, put it together then shoot the entire outside? Just curious what the consensus is.

Just another opinion on the heap....

I love the look of Series trucks hand painted with paint brushes using a flat-finish paint in a sand, or tan, or any of the NATO colors.

Personally, I use a rustoleum rattle can my truck when I need to patch something. Rustoleum Regal Red matches a pretty close to Masai Red.

My 109 *is* Regal Red. Following the advice of a friend in Pittsburgh that did the same. But at the time it was advised that it was a match for Poppy Red, which I thought was the only red for Series trucks in NA. Not sure if that is true at all or whether it applies to later stuff like Stage Ones. I still have a case of Regal Red...

Oooh boy. Y'all llike this: I finished a frame up restoration on a Series 3 SW at the end of last year. Took the entire body, assembled it in bare metal to check fit of the doors etc., marked where the inner fender panels and floor boards overlapped, took it all apart again and painted almost everything on the bottom side in a textured stone guard material that was tintable. The whole rest of the 88 was painted. Probably the most thourough work I've ever been involved with. The owner of the Rover paid the body shop directly, but I saw time sheets of over 400 hours.
I had more than 350 hours over 3 years in the project for assembly of the complete car.
And now it's unlikely to be rubbed against a tree or buried in a swamp!
Trey Ruewer's 90 was painted by the same shop with the body off the frame for around $5000. Realistically, it was probably closer to 8.5k by the time you include my labor and the multiple little jobs that become necessary going along. I brought it to them without the big driveline parts, interior, cage, lights etc. as it was going from white to black.
And a S3 SW that received new doors and a repaint that reached 8.5k with this body shop.
They were not cheap, but I think they've turned out well and the customer's are happy.

Flopped my 94 on the drvers side last year. LOTS of body work. Pulled off everything not painted red. Cost was $3000 for my soft top. The vehicle looks very good and gets lots of compliments.

crazy prices here. It must be different in certain places. I live in an inexpensive area and believe in the buddy system. If you pay more than $2500, you got screwed in my opinion.

You do know the definition of "buddy" right?

I've seen Trey's rig and the paint job looked great. On a side note, how much did the rhino line job cost for Trey's rig? I know you did alot of prep work to do it right. Welcome back Trevor!

Rhino charged $800 for their application. My time slips from 2006 shows what I think is about 19 hours for stripping the interior, seat belts, roll cage etc., reassembling with stainless, various fit and finish issues along the way.
And the interior came out again for the repaint, and then partially again for the stereo. Glad I made the effort to use good hardware and antiseize!

And glad to be back home!

It hasn't happened yet. Planning to disassemble at Defenders Northwest this fall and repaint panels individually.

I'm planning to use a friend of mine who is a classic car enthusiast for the paint. We've sampled the paint up and I painted a set of steel wheels in the color I'm going for. He is top notch but expensive. I can PM his info if you are interested.
