    Hello!:

    I just purchased a 1957 Cessna 172 and I need to know a good, cheap painter.

    Recommendations?

    Thank You!

    Well, I could see spending maybe $8k for a paint job. Is that a pipe dream?

    That’s because they figure you’ll pay extra to cover up the one you’ve got. :)

    My 1979 factory paint job looked a whole lot better after getting some quotes on a repaint. ;)
