Bored today so I thought I would throw this out. I've heard several roadster owners mention possibly doing this, but no one has actually followed through yet. Any chance someone is actually going to do this?

I would, but I'm too deep in the Brick Coupe to switch over now.

This is very true. I was actually trying to find someone to paint it for me this winter. I had prce quotes from between 10-13K :headshake: That's just not in the cards for me right now.

I may contact Zpresence & see if Rob would be willing to do it for me next winter. Have to put some $'s away for this. It WILL be a reality - just not sure of the timeing of it.

hey... super sexy colors don't come cheap!

I knew Buff had checked into it, but had heard he'd waved off due to cost. Maybe if someone gets their hands on a wrecked ZR...

Worth a try..

Tell the shop You have a Civic or any Ricer machine and you wanna change color.. You'll probably see a price cut of at least $6000 off that price. I've tried
I went from $1400 to install and paint my body kit "mentioned the Z" to $380 installed and painted "blind quote, but I did mention the color code". After you get the quote show up in your Z and tell them ..oops..

brilliant idea, but every body shop i have went to has asked me what kind of car etc to get a feel for the size of parts needed to be painted and installed. i would rather have them happy im paying them a lot of money to do it right than aggravated that i just ripped them off by not telling them the kind of vehicle i had to begin with. sure its not right, but that is life

Well, for sure they'll spit in your paint if you do this... I'm just saying try it so you would know if you'r paying for the paint or your paying for having a Z.. then you would establish a bench mark for the price, from that point you can shop right without feeling ripped off for having a nice car.
