line-x is a 2 part mix right, see in AZ the heat effects the 1 step process it gets to be like tar , at least 12 years ago the stuff just melts when it gets 115 degrees out

in MI , I guess summers are not that hot just a lil hot and lot of humidity

I have only been in upper Michigan , Ste saint Marie and then went to Canada for a bit
and that was in Sept. just in time for the blueberries

I called and asked what paint and so forth.
he said it will be a single stage enamel? what ever that means.
It will be lightly sanded with 320 grit and then taped , sprayed and clear top coat protectant used, do not wash or wax for 30 days

any other shop materials will be added plus tax but he said no more than 2 bills no matter what.

So if any one can tell me what singlestage enamel paint is ? does that have to be dried or what he did say something about a hardener.

I agree with Brad, sounds like the manager's special. I'd at least try for the presidential special.

DO NOT get it done in single stage. Ford stopped using single stage paint back in the early 90s.(along with most other car manufactures) KIA still uses the crap though. You want a Base coat / clear coat, If you want it to match or even last and not get chalky. I cant believe a body shop out by you even offers that especially how you are right in the direct sun belt

All i'm saying is I had mine painted for $200 under the table and it turned out nice for me. Same "concept" on the paint job. You can see it on my 2004 Ranger. I had that topper for about 9 months and washed and waxed the hell out of it down here in Florida and it looked great. I can't tell you anything about long term though

Livelifechill, I looked at your shell looks fine, I will either have the shop do it or I might even try it myself since the shell was so cheap anyway, I have a hvlp gun and a big compressor and a garage so just might give it a try. plus the wife has seen it already so the hidding it part is over. hahaha might be fun
