Policies vary widely

In my town, most of the students are working on their own cars. If you know an instructor, then maybe they could arrange something. But more often than not you are going to have to "stand in line."

I know several people...

who took their cars to Ferris in Michigan to get the paint done. You have to uderstand that these guys are LEARNING to do body nd paint, so you run the risk of a TOTTALY screwed paint job, but for straghtforwqard repaint, the risk is generally orth it.
The big cost of a repaint is the labor, and they usually on;y charge for materials.
I'd go the a big college with a recoginized
Autobody Programme, but that's me...
