>>My 86 5KCSTQ has galvanized panels. This car is pearl white with grey
leather. I have a little dent in the leading edge of the hood, and quite a
few dings, because I drive a lot of rough dirt roads. I would like to get it
repainted but feel skeptical about the durability of a new paint job. Does
anybody have any tips on how I can be sure to get this done right. The body
shop here says that they mix the paint themselves, but I don`t like that. I
know I can buy original paint. What about the galvanization? Thanks,Martin.<<

A cousin (well, second cousin) has a Maaco shop. I was over there so he could
look at a little scuffing on my passenger side door. Just for the heck of it,
I asked him about painting the entire car. He said for European paint (which
is required) the cost would be 3K minimum. I don't know if that was THE price
or the price for a relative. Hey you never know, sometimes even relatives see
you coming. HTH
