Hey cen cal brothas, recommend any places to go have some handles and my new tow mirrors painted at? Probably going to have the top valance and maybe my grille done too. Recommendations and your prices would be great. Thanks a lot

Ya we have a local shop but they want to see it first. I might just have my local shop do my esky handles and maybe my bumper cap and check out the place. I never heard of san luis customs before.

I usally charge 400.00 to do front valance, rear bumper cover, all handles, tow mirrors, and tailgate handle. Thats including sanding plastics smooth, primer, wet sand , then base and clear them.

I have done a couple truck in san luis area. Im near Fresno though...

They will charge around 700$ just for the dash.

Here's some of the stuff i have smoothed and painted. It was a pain in the ass.

Thats definitely not pricey..if my paint guy falls down and ends up not doing my stuff, you think you could get my handles flairs and front bumper cap and maybe mirrors done? I'll be down in SLO for school this fall and I know you do good work

That sounds pretty reasonable to me. I need to have my grill shell, valance, mirrors and rear bumper done. Think you can shoot me a pm with a quote?

:think: that's pricey
Thats a really good price :imo. shops around here want 225 for a bumper cap, 225 for mirrors not taken apart, 75 for tailgate handle and bezel. I smoothed and painted all the plastics on the exterior and have done a few pieces in the interior, its a lot of work to get the plastics smoothed out.
