Comments regarding Body Work and Painting -Jean Caron

Paint and bodywork is to me what others see the most from your car and there is nothing worse than a well restored car, beautiful interior, nice new wiring harness, beautiful suspension parts all well done but waves on the body due to poor sanding and prep work. I use Cahill, St Pierre-Jolys, Manitoba, and have done so for over 40 years, and would not use anyone else.We have a good rapport, there is no doubt someone else can do as good a paint job as Maurice Cahill but his bodywork is absolutely faultless. The welding of patches and panel fitting can be done by the owner up to a point but the final stuff, in my opinion is worth spending a little more and have a reputable shop doing it. These days one can expect to spend around $13,000 to $19,000 for a paint job which includes some bodywork and the painting inside of all the panels, and the outside of the car. One should decide early on what they want, a single stage paint or a base and clear coat, then polish.

A small example, when someone works on their own parts, often you see someone using tape from Home Depot, it is okay for house paint and rollers but for bodywork you MUST use masking tape used by a bodyshop, it is a very small detail but when doing deatiled work it will show. Hope this helps a little.
