Started Friday night, all day Saturday, finished up early afternoon Sunday. Probably about 16 hours. Guessing about 3 more weekends. The two rear fenders will be needing some extensive body work first. Previous owner repaired rusted fenders by cutting out old metal parts with new welded metal, that needs to be ground down and smoothed out. My son did the rear left side door really fast Sunday morning, their are times it goes well, then times it doesnt.Hank
Looks good when is the projected finish date? Roughly how many hours to do what you have done so far? As you and son have gained experience do you think the rest will go faster?
MR. BIG BUFORD,I have used both Goo-Gone and WD40....both worked well for me, though it's still a lot of work!
Good to know, I will try that was the brake cleaner an oil or non oil type?I used brake cleaner and a shop towel when I removed the dealer logo off my tailgate and it doesn't seem to have damaged my paint at all and that was 4 years ago.
You can see the weld marks where apparently the original fenders rusted out and they cut them out and welded in new metal. My son stated he plans on grinding down those welds and reforming back to original shape.That right bedside looks like it's nothing but bondo, lol.
One local shop here in Colorado stated they could do my truck for $2700. For an S-10. Some guy on the internet told me once $5000 for a full size lifted Ram. I only have $500 invested for the material I bought in December.My hat is off to y'all, that's a sweet looking ride!
Does anybody have a cost estimate from a professional shop? I'd thnk the crew would be ideal since there's a lot of smaller areas that can be handled individually as opposed to some vehicles with no breaks from front to rear.
One more thing, I forgot to mention the shop that quoted me the $2700, also mentioned that included a 7 year guarantee on the wrap job as long as I followed his after wrap instructions. Those included minimize contact in sun washing it weekly, hand wash soap and water, difinetly no pressure washers. Having it ceramic protected after the wrap is finished and no Armour all, (tire shine products) tire products, this splashes back onto the wrap and causes staining.
