Thank you for you info – I’m a bit puzzled then because there’s an unmistakable “clear coat” that’s peeling off just about everywhere, exposing the red undercoat. And I have serious corrosion around the front of the rear quarterpanels, and similar corrosion by the front wheels, and acorn-dents on my hood. Perhaps it was repainted before my mother-in-law bought it used 20 years ago?
MAACO said it would be about $3500 for the body work and two-part paint job. A shop in Norwalk said it would be about $6500 (but they appear to be a “better” body shop). Looking for a “goldilocks” of better work at a better price. If I’m unrealistic please advise. I’m hoping that someone in the club might have a good reference, and I’d be willing to drive just about anywhere to get it done right and save $$.
Thank you again!
