I have a classic 18. Red sides/transom/deck stripe/ very shiny no scratches. It is however faded to pink. What is a fair price to paint sides and stripe. If anyone within 100 miles of Detroit wants the work please let me know.

I have been sanding and buffing and the red is there I am just not good at it and is coming out blotchy so preparing for painting.

Red is the worst, I finally gave up and painted and have never looked back. I would buff and sand and buff and wax etc. every year and within weeks it was a pink mess again. Mine is a 22 and cost about $3k. Prep, two coats primer, two red, two clearcoat. Looks great, i do nothing but wax.
