Default Any body people in RS?

I picked up a fuel door and a rear lift gate for the 80 today. Was hoping someone in the club was good with a paint gun to get them painted to match, and do some light sanding of surface rust.

I've got a paint gun I could do it for you. But I'm no bodyman pro. But I have all the tools necessary. Painting is the easy part. Prep is the skill part and what determine a good or bad paint job

I think I have the place for you. They have not worked on my rig but I have seen some of their work.

From what I remember they have shops in Denver, Centennial and down in Frederick.

I painted my car used da roller there and da paint brush.

I paint my toe nails, everything, paint the walls. I'm Silly.

I have seen the Ratt Can Body Shop quality of work. That body parts I got today are in good shape just need to be striped and sanded in a some areas that have surface rust. I think the hardest part after the prep and spray will be to assemble the rear lift gate. Installing glass and emblems.

Remember, Perry and Ricardo are my apprentices, if you want the real jouneyman bring it to me. As long as Home Depot has a close color match in rustoleum were good to go

If you don't find what you need at the Home Depot; Wall Mart also caries a fine selection of rustoleum - just remember to take proof of your age.

On the original topic, a few years ago I picked up a used tail gate from the Bronco. I stripped it down and took it to Sams Automotive on Oxford. They painted it to match. They did good work and I have been pleased with the results.

I painted my snorkel and grill surround and dealt with the mess, time wasted, and money spent. In all I spent around $500 in supplies to do it. In the end, I'll admit, it was very rewarding. When it all peeled off, I paid $100 for a professional to paint it right. True story.

I just want it to look good being on the 80 and as it is my Daily Driver. I could care less about warm fuzzies, at this point. I have a F engine for warm fuzzies.
