Donovan I'm sorry to hear about the school booth, that really sucks. Good to hear that you might have other options though.

My brother in law out there in Cochrane is back in the auto supply business and I was going to say if you didn't have another option perhaps I could talk with him and see if he could hook you up.

Cars looking great man!

Thanks for the replies and options you all have proposed guys. It sucks, but it is what it is at this point. It’s not totally off the table as a viable option right now, but with the current outlook it’s not real promising or likely that the kids will return to school before the car is ready to shoot.

I stopped in at the other customers that I mentioned I was in fairly tight with yesterday afternoon, and had a short sit down discussion with them regarding my little dilemma. Long and short of it is, they’re absolutely willing to let me spray my own car in their booth on a weekend, but I’m just not real sure about the dollar figure they want for using their booth.

I’ll be bringing and supplying all my own tools and materials including paint and masking supplies, doing all the work myself, they’ll be responsible for absolutely nothing but providing the booth. The $$$ they threw at me is $500 for two days. $250 a day JUST to use their booth, during non-production hours, and more than likely the majority of the first day would be just to get it masked up and ready to go.

I dunno, but it sounds a bit steep to me no? I mean I won’t even be using any of their heat or electricity really the first day. And NONE of their paint or supplies. I like to hear your guys’ thoughts on this.

I still have the 2 other options to pursue, so I’d be interested to know how much they’ll want for the same thing. Who knows, maybe it’ll be around the same, but as of right now I have nothing else to compare that $500 figure to.

What do y’all think??

Dave, I would imagine they’re going to be the ones responsible for allowing me access in the mornings and closing up in the evenings. Which isn’t ideal either as I don’t like having to rely on others to do the things I want, but I get it. It’s their shop and they’re not just gonna hand over the keys so I can do as I please.

When the number was thrown at me, he didn’t even hesitate, it’s like he already had it in his head. I’m thinking I may not have been the first one to approach him with the proposition.

I'd spend $500 to have a proper booth. I bet you can negotiate the first day to $150.

Let me know what day and I can probably come down and give you a hand.
Thanks Duke, I may just take you up on that offer. I’ve done a two-tone in a booth before, and it’s a ton of work, very time consuming. The Fox Mustang I shot was 12 hours in the booth, from wheeling it in and starting masking first thing in the morning, to cleaning the gun after the last coat of clear that night.

This one is gonna take even longer, as there will be a sealer coat to spray, and a third color and additional masking for the pinstripes I could definitely use a dependable and reliable helper to assist with everything that day.

I’ll see about negotiating the first day down to something a little more reasonable, but he strikes me as the kinda guy that’s pretty firm once he’s made up his mind.

Here’s that Fox Rustang I did a complete and two-tone on, sorry about the pictures of pictures.

Seems high to me. It's not like you have a lot of options, so I would check elsewhere first and keep this as a backup at least. Does he realize how much you have already done and that you're supplying everything?

No, it wouldn’t be that much. It shouldn’t take me any more than the 2 days, so $500 according to them. But I’m fully in agreement, it sounds like a lot of money for what it is.
$500 kept in my pocket is a helluva lot better than in theirs.

Agreed. And he should, I feel I made it perfectly clear when I spoke to him yesterday.
