I'm thinking about getting the GTO painted this winter. I stopped by a guys local shop and he gave me a verbal estimate for stripping the paint to bare metal, repairing all the rust and dents (I said I wanted metal, not bondo), putting a patch panel in the passenger floor board, painting the engine bay, getting a guy he knows to freshen up the engine (may or may not be included in his price), and painting the car for around $8000 to $10000. How should I proceed with this? Should I get a written estimate or at least an agreement in writing desrcibing all the things agreed upon? What are some of the lessons learned by other members here? This is not a frame off resto. Your comments will be appreciated (however you spell that).
