            What car are these gonna be on? Keeping the 318iS or the early model? If it is on the 318iS, i say powder coat white, and then splatter with colorful Gooooo

                They'll be on the 318is. I'm getting a little bored with them now.

                Speaking of which, anyone have a connect for a full exterior respray? I have a budget of 2k and I want new paint in late winter, like January or February.

                  Lol. You would be better off doing it yourself for that budget...it's like asking who would do an engine out rebuild for under $500.

                    I was planning on doing all the prep work, disassembly, assembly, and final buff out on my own. I don't think 2k for literally just a same color respray is out of question.

                          If I knew where my paint gun is I'd Send it to you. The paint part is the easiest part if it's not a metallic. Good paint jobs come from good prep.

                              I've used a couple harbor freight guns, one to do an odd job at a buddies place, and one has a primer gun at work. Personally I'd just use them as a primer gun, and even at that it sprayed like ass. If you do decide to get one get a 1.2-1.3 tip, the 1.8 is way too big for base clear. Also prepare to lay paint down heavy, if you go light on a harbor freight gun it will come out seedy as hell.

                              I'm pretty sure that someone one that has never painted wouldn't really notice and the samples I used possibly arnt the norm.

                              Fuck now I want to paint a car.
