Default Chopped's Paint Jobbin' Thread

Just somewhere to show off my awesomeness.....and YES I'm expensive, LOL.

An RL before...





After





Another RL (no before pics)

Driver's door



Trunk lid...



07 TL Type-S before....



















AFTER!!!!
















And StevieRay's wife Debbie wanted a facelift for her Infiniti I40....









I've done much more, but I'm always forgettin' to take pics. I'll add more to this thread as time goes on.

You may always PM me for prices or advice. Just be ready to show me some pretty detailed pics of what damage needs to be fixed if you want the quote to be accurate.

Depends on severity of the damage. Sometimes six hours. New bumpers take me about an hour and a half to scuff down and shoot.

hmmm, you are tempting me sir, but I have one question before I contemplate a decision. Do you hate Orange Peel as much as I do? And let me tell you I hate it very much.

I kinda prefer the factory orange peel over a slick lacquer look, but I know I'm not gonna get that from a new paint job.

Lou, its called a Hotel....

j/k , I'm telling you man, this guy is tempting me to save up my quarters (pennies are not enough I'm sure) and have my car towed to his shop and wait for the good to happen. I'm very very very picky about paint jobs. I know how to prep and I'm good at it, I just dont have a paint booth nor do I have experience shooting. So if he hates orange peel as bad as I do I will be very happy with the results.

Evan - I'll be the first to admit I'm disappointed.












Disappointed there weren't pics of the G1 'vert in this thread!

Nice work bro - you've got the touch for sure.
