i own a 70 nova,350.auto,need painting,and door panels.
69 camro,350,auto.thats 95 percent finish.
you don't see alot of nova's in north al.
so i sold my 68 chevelle ( theres alot them
around here all years) i wanted to be different.
now the problem is trying to find somebody
to paint the nova.
I'd throw out another factor to consider; time. The best painters are the busiest and charge the most for their limited time. If I walked into a shop with no cars in various stages of prep and didn't have to wait ten to fifteen minutes to get his attention; I'd want a lot of references.
