New member here. I've had my 88 SS for almost a year now and i'm hoping to paint it before the new year. Does anyone know of a reasonable option that will do good work. Got 2 quotes but haven't pulled the trigger.

I can't help with recommendations but I do have experience with my paint. A good paint job is in 90% in the prep, the more you can do the better the results will be. In my case, I did all the body work, all the guide coat block sanding, many applications of high build primer, primer sealer, removed the glass, trim, moldings, door handles, locks, lights and gapped the bumpers. The prep took about 3 months before I was satisfied with arrow straight panels. I had it towed to the shop since the interior was gutted. Fortunately I had no rust. All the shop had to do was wipe it down and apply the Sikkens basecoat, clear coat. My paint job was sort of "free" as I traded my services theirs, also known as a barter. Welcome to the forum, there are many excellent body/painters in the forum, they should chime in shortly.

Welcome to the site, I am new to Florida and in Brooksville, been on this site for years. I don't even know a painter of good repute in my area. Good luck in your search!!
