300zx paint job

Can anyone recommend a good body shop to paint an 88 300zx in the Atlanta area?

Re: 300zx paint job

how is that possible... the body styles are so similar... the only difference is the hood scoop. Did the 87+ even come with scoops?

Re: 300zx paint job

I have to agree with Shoji. Let's see now........maybe his spray gun locks up when trying to paint anything but an 88 turbo. Nah....that's not it. Hmmmm........maybe the compressor shuts off in the same situation. Nah......that's not it either. I know. This guy wants to be known as the world's best painter of 88 turbo Z's and refuses to paint anything else and therefore gets brainlock. Any other ideas from you guys? This could be a good one. Sound off. LOL

Re: 300zx paint job

He was joking. He's just teasing because the OP asked if someone could paint his 88 Z as if the year of the car was important.

Re: 300zx paint job

My 280zx is being painted by Sentry Paint and Body. They have painted many cars for Georgia Z-Club members. I have not see my car for several weeks but I will let you know how it turns out.
