Price, quality and lead time. It's all a balancing act. You can get two, but usually not all three. You have to do a lot of looking and researching. I have painted my 67 twice, both times by friends at work and they were done in their garages at home. Most recent one in 2000 cost me $1800. Not a lot of body work...most of that was done back in 1981 during the first paint job. I had all the trim removed except the windshield. It included the door jams, underside of hood and trunk. I had to do most of the cut and buff, but I was very pleased in the end.
