Feeler. Group paint repair/chips/scratches/bumps/humps etc

Thanks Jesse for the reference. I spoke with Chuck today and found out the following:

Chuck does paint work only. Paint chips, paint scratches, paint parts. No dings.
He says he's getting a high number of calls asking for his services.
I proposed a group session at a TBD location to do several cars in one pass.
He liked the idea.
As for cost, the estimate below is subject to change once he sees the extent of the work to do (paint chips and scratches only):
$85 whole car
or if a lot of work
$125 whole car.
For painting parts, he needs more info on the part.


For bump/ding/hump repair, he gave me the name of Jose.
Jose has to see your car before telling you cost but here is an estimate:
$75 per panel and he is willing to do a discount on that if we get a group of cars. He's also willing to come to a location to do the work as a group session.

So, Let's try to get a list going and then we can decide on when/where to have these pesky dings/humps/scratches/chips removed from our 3s.

Paint work (paint parts, chips, scratches)

Ding/bump work

I'm sure he can add a scratch to your car for a small fee.

NP. I can't stand my bump.
driver side passenger door. I see it every time I get in my car.
I even parked AS FAR as I could at work and someone still followed me
to ding my door.

Then i have this paint chip on my hood.
got in on 66. I SAW the little rock on its way to my car,
cars were to the left and right... I just watched in horror the impact.

Finally, I found a 3 inch scratch on my passenger side skirt.
No clue how I got it.

I want all 3 items GONE.

Guys, please post before/after pics. I have a few tiny paint chips here and there (normal wear and tear), but I think I'm the only one who would ever notice them. I'll probably wait at least another year, or until I have a more significant chip, before addressing them. OTOH, if Chuck is really good, I may take car of them sooner rather than later.

I have to assume he will provide what he needs to fix the chips.

But YOU... you have chunks to repair.

You might want to call him to let him know the extent of your spoiler damage.

I don't care about the front bumper anymore because i was going to put the stock one back on anyways. I have deep scratches and a few chips by my back fender from someone bumping me while my car was parked last week. I'm more worried about those.

roger roger.

I think I'll wait a couple of days and see who else joins.
Next will be the tough task to set up a time/place convenient to all.

I'm meeting the ding guy today in the afternoon near Laurel/Columbia.
We'll talk about when to do the group session and pricing discount.
If you cannot make it for the group session, I'm sure he will still
charge you as part of the group.
