I need the bodywork done too of course. The only rust is at the bottoms of both doors and the front quarter on 1 side is rusty.

If you were near Austin I would love the project.. But I think we are a bit to far apart for that...

It certainly will be a nice ride when its done though.. :)

Thanks for the reply,
I cant wait to get it painted. If I can't find someone else, I may give you a buzz. Im trying to think of a good reason to come down to the Lone Star state. I got some family in Atlanta, but that isn't too near austin :angry: It is pretty long too. I didnt know how long until I parked it in the garage at my job. Now a days they make the parking spots really small.

I wonder if its the longest coupe ever produced? It's a 73 Lincoln Continetal Coupe

I think there is a guy in Louisville that could paint your car, I think his name is Doe or John I'll look for his number. Shit I need to get my car painted no body work just needs to be sprayed, I also know of a couple of guys in the DC area that paint but I dont think it will be show quality maybe nice driver quality.... hit me on my home [email protected]

you dont wanna get interior done in va beach, i tried a few spots and the cheapest quote i got was $1300 just to do 2 swivel seats.....i was gonna put swivels in my car but decided not too, but $1300 is way too much just for two seats, i just bought me a sewing machine and did it myself ;)

I dont wanna go all out and get swivel seats. Im soon gonna get this 85 Cutlass and I just want to get the interior redone and just want something simple...very simple in black vinyl. Im talking about the dash, doors, the two front seats, back seats, trunk..pretty much everything. I wish I did know how to sew because I would do it all myself. For someone who does know how to sew is it difficult. How much am I looking at if I take it to a shop and get it down?

85 Regal... so you paid 1300 for the body work and for him to spray it ? you paid for the paint yourself.
