    That is the same question i was wondering........My bird is currently getting repainted as well and when i went to go by there and visit it they had the whole car torn down (Ex: tail lights, head lights, body panels, trim, etc etc..) my paint job set my insurance company back $6,500!

    Probably mostly labor if they took all the panels off.

    Very nice. I love the color. Next mod for my TA is a paint job.

    I like the Goat too! Mine is Spice Red. What have you done to the third gen? Looks like some huge tires on the back

    I work for a dealer that has a body shop trust me $6500 is insane for paint but the body shop milks as much money out of the insurance company as they can and then only does half the shit they are charging them for! the pictures dont show every step of the process alot of stuff was removed. and a mood body man finish sands with the panels on so that he knows the filler he puts on the fender will match the body line on the door and so on the cars was primed 3 times and finish sanded smooth so there are no high or low spots in the paint.

    Please don't repaint you baby. Maple Red Metallic IS the rarest factory color, at least for 2002.

    i know, thats one reason why i'll probably just buy a black ws6 later. but i need a paint refresher. the idiot before me did a HORRIBLE job of taking care of it. theres so much that needs updated. but thats the nature of owning an older car. i wouldn't have it another way

    Thanks i dont have any idea how much HP it's putting out, it's never been tuned. You might want to take a second look at the pictures the left front is off the ground! last night was the local 1/8 mile tracks street night, made 10 passes pulled the left front at least 6" every pass and managed to get the right off a few times. the pic i have was taken late the guy who took it said he wasnt expecting it to leave that hard so he wasnt ready to snap the pic so he got it on the way down but you can definatly see light under the left front!

    MRM is a gorgeous color, black is boring IMO and black T/A's are a dime a dozen.

    To the OP, I love it! the car looks beautiful, and congrats on pulling the wheel! That's a great shot right there.

    The wife's Goat looks great too. I envy you, sounds like you got a pretty cool wife there....drives a Goat AND sold her bike to pay for your paint. That's a keeper right there!!
