Looks like now. Painters did good besides the overspray. I would be kinda mad about that. Just curious, what was the cost on that?

i dont remember exactly but if i recall right it was around 2300 using a salvaged rear door.

i am happy overall but the tires and there is also paint on my doorhandle and a couple other things. next time im in town ill go in and talk to him about it. My truck was in for almost 3 weeks, then my brother dropped off his truck and the day after we picked it my stepdad got into a fairly nasty wreck in the 82 chevy and had it dropped off. i think he will take care of me.

Paint on the door handle? Sounds like a good time to go back and get them color matched.

I think steel wool and alittle elbow grease will get that paint off. It not you could always spray black paint over it...

ha thanks!

the handles arent really bugging me. they are all faded anyways so it might be about time for a fresh coat of black.
