Hey guys!

I've been confined to a bed for a few weeks for back surgery, and I just noticed that somebody decided to scratch all 4 doors on my FX :cry: . Does anybody in the Houston area know of a reputable shop I or my brother can check out to get the 4 doors repainted or do I have to take it in to the dealership?

Thanks in advance!

Doh! Not the best thing to see when you finally get out... hope you're doing better than your FX...

BTW, for the scratches you may not need a repaint... there are some detailers out there that can do magic with some scratches... I'd look into that first... you'd be looking at about $300-500 for the detailing job, but you're probably looking at $300-500 per panel if you're going the repaint route... so X4 for the repaint...

Most competent detailers that have done these big jobs before will have an album of before and after photos that you can look at before you decide what you want to do...

Thanks, physically I'm feeling better; but I'm just wanting to get back to my normal daily activities!

No, the scratches were not the best thing to see! Had it not been because I needed to lean on the door, I wouldn't have noticed. The scratches aren't deep, but it still bothers me. I was upset, especially after having my FX for about a week and right out of the collision shop.

I truly appreciate your advice, I'll have my brother look into some detailers around the Houston area.

Thanks!

Someone kinda close to me showed me his work on a REALLY bad keyed car... the result wasn't 100% but was pretty darn near close... from the pictures, I couldn't tell the difference, but he told me if you looked really carefully at certain angles in 2 spots you could see where the paint was touched up...

He's on the ORG and is also a member of a detailing forum... I'll send him a PM and see if he knows anyone in the Houston area...
