Hi guys,

I am planning to paint my old junk for daily use, and I am looking for a spray painting shop ( if wih oven, would be a bonus .. lol ) that could do a change in color for less than RM1.8k ( outside only ) in KL / PJ area.:biggrin:

Do you have any recommendation? Please share, thanks !

Unless its rusting, don't bother to paint lah. Since its daily driving and its junk.
Paint already also bound to get scratches.

There are lots of shops out there who'll do you for RM800 or so. But don't expect the paint to be good. Small stones will easily chip it off on your hood, it'll start to fade or become patchy after 6 months, polishing or waxing will make it dull and faded (bad/poor clear coat) etc.

If you want presentable probably easier to consider wraps. But I don't think wraps are any cheaper than painting.

Or maybe can try Aikka plastic dip. They got a spray paint shop using rubberized paint similar to plasti dip. Maybe they might meet your budget?

Izso - kinda agree you get what you pay for, but there are some who do a proper job and not charging ridiculous price. Unfortunately, they are a bit too far from where I am and I was just hoping I could find one in KL / PJ area.

Anyway, thanks man !

Bro Danzeterna - who is Fadzik? Can share details? lol

If you are thinking for change in color, it is advisable that you paint the engine bay as well. This is to avoid trouble when you are asked to pop up your hood during road block and having to explain to the officers about the two tone difference.

Scratch has no damage to the paint or car, its just cosmetically ugly.

A wound is the scratch is so deep its rusting.

What I'm saying is, if you're so fat and ugly, don't bother putting make up lah. It won't help. Doing cosmetic surgery also won't help cause you'll still be fat.

Very subjective la. Detailers or people who like the car to look nice all the time would find it worth to maintain and make it look as good as possible...

Is like a fat chick looking at herself in the mirror and say "fat ma fat lo nvm, already married and old no need to look good"

Still to look good or not to look good is your own choice lo. Some more on performance, some just try to look fast and some is just basically want the car to look good and not much on performance.

Anyway, can PM Fazidk who is in Cheras. Since still within KL area. PJ I only have one contact.
