1993 Black Cobra: 3 Step Correction

I was contacted by my client whom I have corrected his two other cobras a 2014 Shelby GT500 and a 2004 Cobra all three have been black in color. This one being 21 years old had accumulated quite a bit of defects even though it only has 1000 original miles and some change on the ODO. I don't know the whole story on it, but I am guessing he purchased it from a collector. When he purchased it, it only had 900 miles on the ODO and still he has only driven it a few times. I was asked to do a 3 step correction on this one so that he could show it.

Total Time: 34.5 hours split between last Friday through this Monday

Just curious, what does that kind of correction and detail run on average?

Most reputable shops charge 60-70+ an hour, and 34 hours is a pretty normal number for a 3 step. Im sure danny charged less but thatll give u a rough idea of how much it could cost

Thanks guys glad you liked this one, I hope to get some time to do the Mach 1 again. This time I am going to coat it with Opticoat V2 or possibly 22PLE Professional, then Polymer Net Shield as a topper on which ever I choose. Since I have all three; just have to decide on which to use as the coating Opticoat or 22PLE. Of Course it will be two to three weeks post application to apply Polymer Net Shield so whichever coating I end up using will have ample time to cure. I'll be doing a two step on it this time around probably Menzerna FG400 and finishing with Scholl Concepts S40 since it has some light swirls and marring on it.
