Yes, but I am not sure how quickly they can get you in. They are very good with fiberglass and all that stuff. They helped me last winter with my truck and it looks great considering the rockers and kick panels were rotted out. I'll try and get a hold of them so you can get a time line down.

I dont want to brag< but i am very handy with the paint! Just ask Riley, I painted one of my shop trucks last year and it looked awesome!

I just did it in one of my warehouses, took me a day! well worth the investment,

I have tried myself, and even bought a compressor and spray gun, but always ends up looking like crap!! Not smooth and usually fish eyes? I sand and prep and wipe with varsol and follow the mixing instructions....but still crap!!! :( .....I would do it myself if someone was there to guide me? and if i had a place to do it?

Use pure paint thinner to wipe it down, have good ventilation and don't smoke while you do it!!! Varsol leaves a film which would probably be your source of fish eyes.

Never use varsol near primer , use the paint thinner as the car should allready be clean from the many times you have allready sanded it down , the so called TAC rag works good as well. As for the paint you should use the 2 part paint . It is the paint then the clear coat after , this way it is alot easier to clean up any clear coat runs with a razor blade , did my limosine in white and that coulor is almost as hard to paint as red .
