Heh everybody!!!!

BigStubby's back. Can any of you Mid Westerner's (Illinois) give me a suggestion for a shop to get my 84 painted?

I can't drive it that way this spring....I'm sure you all understand.

It's good to be back.

Hi BigStubby...

OK, my first question is, big stubby what? Nevermind... :L

My Vette is at a shop called TriPower Automotive in Libertyville IL. I was referred to them by a friend. They do both body and engine work and they do a lot of Vettes.

The other place I was considering for my paint job was Vetteran Automotive in Crystal Lake. He has done my tranny & rear end and they do body / paint too.

These may be too far away for you, but I think they're both good shops.

What color are you going for? I'm at that decision point right now, and it's driving me crazy!

Well, good luck with your paint job!

Welcome home :beer :Twist

I don't know how far you are from Columbia Missouri, but just north of there is a guy named "Steve" that has a Corvette Shop ;) Sometimes he wears this "Corvette Hawaiian Shirt" (I still got to get one of them) :D

Steve is also a CACC Supporting Vendor Check this out The Hawaiian Shirt Guy

Good call Bud!

I wasn't even thinking! If I lived closer to Steve I'd definitely have had him do the Blue Beast... but I can't be away from her for that long :L!!

I've been to Vetteran Automotive on several occasions. They do VERY nice work. They just put up a new website as well: Vetteran Automotive

Go hit MAACO, they are having a special $299. I payed $899 for this paint job and it turned out great, this will be my third summer with it and still looks great. It was painted in Spokane WA.
