recently put my car in the shop to get its 1st full paint job. Nobody within a 5 mile radius would touch it but if they did it'd be a minimum 10K. lol Had to go out of town about 20 miles to a custom type shop that said 5-6k and they can do the stickers.

The car is a 86, 71k miles (engine stat below), no real rust/rot to speak of out side surface rust due to a over buffing. I've owned the car 19 yrs and aiming to do a tribute to all ss yrs with having 83-84 style orange trunk & doors stickers made up and 87-88 laydown spoiler painted to match window trim. It will stay black paint spies hecker fp2002 is what was told. Here's the look I'm aiming for flat black hood and some semblance of OEM style rims maybe in the 17" flavor. I love this look.

IDK,will be doing wheel posts later.

Unfortunately no, your best bet is to use IMGUR to host your photos

this site is good for the reason you don't have to sign up or give any info. if you decide to use remove your plates. the downside keep the link or you will never find the pics again.

Sounds like a neat look, look forward to seeing when it's done, but progress pics are always cool too. 5-6k for a complete paint job by a reputable place that does good work sounds very reasonable from what I've heard on prices in the last several years.

here's who is doing the paint. anyone living in the RI/CT area they are in groton ct. i'm not done with them yet cuz they are putting m car back together as of last 2 days. he will not apply any stickers till 3 mo post paint. orig quote was 5-6k looks like gonna be about 7k. which is fine. was estimated 2-3 weeks... i went thru this with my other ss this time of yr in 01' and it took longer that they estimated. so no big deal to me. i went to every autobody shop in town an they all said NO but if we were to do it it'd be about 10k and 1 said i like to do higher end stuff but i'll do yours for 1ok to spray it but i won't pull anything off. <--- that guy recomended where i'm at.

i gotta admit always hated black on a car not for looks but cuz its the worst color to maintain lookin good. for me keepin it lookin fresh is gonna be tough. i envy the white ss guys. lol.

"painted steelies and dog dish, poverty cap look is what I want to do with mine..17x8"

you're right up my ally if you ain't trollin. that pic is from us wheels. from what i gather those things may have 10 studs holes for 2 diff applications. NO GOOD IF YOU WANT TO GO BARE BONES! https://www.uswheel.com/wheel/12211/us%2Dwheel%2Dsmoothie%2Dseries%2D510%2Dextended%2Dsizing/?finishID=3880

i wanna go 17" front & back. front 6" or 7" & back 8-9". i despise the look of fronts tucked in with rears all hangin out. i prefer the look you see on pickups with the fronts wider than the rears. lol i wanna try & keep front spacing the same on all 4 wheels. found this custom rim site heres the page i saved and i have yet to contact tham due to finances tied up in the paint job and a block to rear bumper exhaust to be done as soon as it comes out. but here's here;s the site i;m lookin at. don't know anything bout em. http://thewheelsmith.net/wheel-catalog/oem-wheels

as far as dog dish caps im mixed on that in a way yeah i wanna do em on another i don't... maybe just on the front??? bust what one's? lol depends upon your taste. i seen some cool NOS 65-68 biscayne caps on ebay they have a certain tame look that may fit a ss.
