The thought of having my vinyl tape stripes removed and a nice clear coat of white paint applied has entered my mind when ever I see a custom paint job at a local car show. It does look nice on other cars !! Has anyone done this ?? The cost estimate I received from a local custom painter was $2,000.00 that included a clear coat finish. Would you paint all the stripes ?

My 08 recieved the final clear coat this afternoon. I heard rumors of around $2K also, mine will be considerably cheaper as I have done a majority of the work myself, and basically just borrowed a body shops paint booth. I just did the top stripes, didn't want to mess with the "GT500" logo on the rockers.
