Selecting the Right Shop for Paint

Posted on April 20, 2014 at 6:27pm 3 Comments

Hello All,

I'm beginning the process of finding the right shop to paint my 64 fleetwood.  

I had the car at a restoration shop for about a year getting all the mechanical work done, but they gave a very vague estimate for paint. They quoted me around 20k to paint including removing all the trim, bumpers, door handles, and media blasting the body.  I understand that anything can come up during the process but do shops normally provide a detailed quote and as issues arise its…

Professional Restoration Shop Work Questions/Thoughts/Pricing

Posted on June 4, 2013 at 9:55pm 12 Comments

I know taking it to a professional shop would cost some…

David, I see you are in PA area and there are several CLC Regions in the area and around the north east.  This is another reason to join and become an active member of the CLC and your local region(s) if not already a member.

Our Eastern NC and Carolina region members are constantly networking (usually via email) when we need to find someone that knows how to work on our old Cadillac.  For example a couple weeks ago someone needed resources to rebuild his hold Hydramatic and sent an email out to the Carolina region and I saw no less than 6 solid responses on reputable transmission mechanics in the Carolina area that work on these older transmissions.
