Trapin, where did you get your done? I'd do it in a heartbeat but man they charge $6K to strip the car then ANOTHER $3K to e-coat.
I had mine done at a company called Carponents in Belleville Michigan. Same place Stielow had The Mule done. They were good people but unfortunately are no longer in business. However, there is another company here in Michigan that is doing it now.


International Paint Stripping
15300 Oakwood Drive
Romulus, MI 48174

They can strip and e-coat body shells within the measurements of 13.6 feet in length and 48 inches in height. Cost: $2500 That's for stripping the car AND e-coating it.

The price has really gone up. When I had mine done it was $1800. That was about 3 years ago. It does have it's draw backs though...they are a little rough with your parts when they handle them. They creased my decklid in 4 places and parts of my drip rails were bent and had to be repaired. Stielow told me that they dented the quarter panel on The Mule real bad and wouldn't take responsibilty for it (this was Carponents). Haven't heard anything bad about IPS though.

Hope it helps.
