OOOH She's so purdy Al! I give everyone who has a black car props! They must be so hard to keep clean! At least with Cyber green any bugs that get smushed on it match! :ha:

Curly

Glad you made it over to this side. :p . I dunno on the paint price. It'll be first part of 2k6 before my girl gets her new facial, botox and stuff:eek:

By the way Justin, that pearl sounds like a good idea. I've never seen a black car with a pearl undercoat. Have you? Give me the scoop.

Thanks for the props guys. I thought yins seen buttercups pics. She's not a sheltered child. really she isn't.

Al-the paint color you want is Black Magic Pearl. It's the black for the 20th anniversary GTI and the 04-05 Jetta GLI 1.8T. It's sharp. Very metallicy and very sweet at night. :)

Another pearl I like is Honda's Flamenco Black Pearl. It's got a red pearl in the basecoat, so it looks almost red at night. That paint code is NH-592P.

Nighthawk Black Pearl by Honda is sweet as well. It has a blue pearl in it, so it looks blue at night.

Just some ideas for you to consider. A good paintjob will probably be around $2000 if no bodywork needs to be done.

2K....Yikes!!!! I guess I better break out a few hundred cans of Krylon Gloss Black...JUST KIDDING:D That black magic pearl sounds like the route I'll go with. Now is that 2K paint job for VW body shop work or other jobbers?

Oh yeah, I boweth to thee oh great moderator. Congrats mang! Did you don this mask during the org's transformation? Again, congrats.

I'm not really a TDIrookie by any means now, so I figured it would be appropriate. 2k-2500 will get you a good paint job from a reputable place (no Maaco or Earl Schaab). I paid $2900 to get my ITR resprayed Mary Kay white (don't laugh, it had pink metal flakes in it), and it included the jambs. This, after Maaco messed up the first time, so there was some extra prep involved.

Thanks for the kind words, always a pleasure conversing with you. :)

i was thinking today, al: where's blossom? there's got to be someone that loves blossom like we love buttercup and bubbles. maybe a nice red nb? hehehe. ;)
What's up gurrrl,
Ya know, that would be too cool. And yes, red would be the color. :p Buttercup worked out great for me. Buttercup is a flower after all. PPG buttercup looks better in the flower vase of a guy, that an actual flower. Not that theres nothing wrong with flowers. Ya know how us guys are:)

I don't know if I told ya. I gave 73Standard a MoJo JoJo for their green nb. Don't know if they're gonna name it that. He just wanted one for the bug. We'll see what becomes of it.

Hey by the way, are you ok from Rita passing through this past weekend?

man, rita who? ;) in austin, we didn't get a drop of rain, not a speck! we got some nice gusty breezes on saturday, but if it wasnt for the news, we wouldn't have known anything was up. so, my friend's and i used the nice day to paint clean, polish and wax our cars. it was a LOT of work, but worth it. :) i even got a sunburn! and we were supposed to get a hurricane!

Yeah, it's a schmoove pic mang! Almost calendar worthy IMHO. Notice the reflected building w/setting sun in the bumper. That turned out pretty cool too. Bugs just have all the right curves to do cool pics like that. Man its great to be a beetle owner!!

By the By, did you fair ok after Katrina? Wishing you well buddy.
