OK, umm once again we are working on the assumption of A PAINT JOB ONLY!!! and NOT bodywork. Understand??? You don't get to go back and fudge the numbers after the fact.I agree with your numbers Stan, I paid more than that ($12K) because once the old paint is off you will find the hole in the rockers, the bondo hidden in the nose and tail, etc.
I put the blame on... jranmann
He is the one that posted the pic of the motor bay from Carl's site..
That had nothing to do with the car that is on ebay.
Wow, the investigative power of the E9 board is amazing. We should be in charge ofGot these photos from a friend that inquired. ...
Gentlemen I present to you the mysterious ENGINE BAY ....
I told you guys...never doubt me.Chicane, may I now join you in the chorus of laughter?
that engine bay looks like mine! i.e. a driver worth no more than between $15-$20k.
It's real simple, the gentleman was making a point based on a car that need NO BODYWORK, a solid CS. If a CS is solid and needs no bodywork I can put more into the car itself and less on paint. If the car is a heap it is vice versa. Why am I going to pay a mint for a rusty shell only to dump thousands more for paint AND bodywork?Chic,
I don't need you telling me "Understand? Understand?" over and over. Just when I was starting to feel a little sympathy to you your arrogance and condescension has reaffirmed to me why you should just go and take your attitude somewhere else.
Yeah if the rattle can cost $3K. :roll:
$3K would get you a nice respray. I don't know anyone paying $12K for a paint job unless they own a Ferrari Lusso.
Here's a question..
How much would you sell your car for?
Stan I think your car is a fine example of a rust free/clean/3.5..coupe
