I've seen some of Kozal's work. Damn, he's good.

Kozal does some serious work, I think all you'll need is some kitty hair to patch some holes

Like many others have said, use a DA to sand off what paint is showing lifting, bubbling, peeling etc. I wouldn't think the entire body would need to be stripped to bare plastic. Look up some DIY DA sanding techniques to give you an idea of techniques as far as getting a nice prepped and smooth surface when sanding the old paint off.

You cant work in small areas of the body too much or you will end up with low spots. Sometimes body guys call these "azzholes". The paint needs to be "feathered", or smoothly stepped from sanding through the coats of paint to remove blemishes. Look it up on youtube for videos. I usually started with 320 sandpaper with an interface pad on a DA to remove and feather out blemishes. Just keep the DA moving in every direction, don't focus on small areas unless you feel like doing some block sanding.

@03f15012- Moore's said that a rough estimate would be $3000-4000 to strip it and repaint it. Just a normal paint job with them (he said) was around $1800-$2000 for prep and paint.

I nearly crapped my pants!

Holy crap! I knew it was a bit more expensive, but not that much! Dont think he ever charged us that much... I'm guessing you wanted a paint job; not another car payment!

I think I had a total of $700 in my paint job and that included the primer, 2 gallons of paint, reducer, and clear coat + activator, and all the sanding disks, but I had to do a lot more sanding than you should.

It's time consuming but worth it in the end, just make sure you practice first to reduce orange peel, wet sanding and buffing sucks ***
