How to Build a Muscle Car - Paint

Since your car is now in a “vulnerable” state, it’s smart to either have it primered, or kept indoors to prevent rusting. At this point, you might want to begin the search for a reputable painter in your area. Contact professional shops for referrals or find out if they provide this service in-house. Get estimates from several different paint and body shops, and keep in mind that it’s not always your best bet to go with the “cheapest deal”. It makes sense to go with a painter who readily provides you with work samples, or puts you in contact with customers who have used him. This is the painter who might be a little more expensive but well worth it in the long run.
