Frequently asked questions
1. What is your turn around time?
It does vary, but typically 2 weeks from when I receive the body, it applies if I am ordering it or if it is being sent to me. At times, I offer a “rush” service for 1 or 2 bodies for customers in a hurry. This service will depend on workload at the time, so just email if needed. I will update workload from time to time on this site, there are a few large races we attend, which will add a little time to turnaround, about 2 or 3 times a year.
2. Can you get the bodies there?
Yes, I am a JConcepts dealer, and I can order most mainstream bodies online…or you can order it and have the shipment dropshipped straight to me.
3. How much do you charge.
Price depends on the size of the body and the difficulty of the paint scheme. The best way to get a price quick is to email me a picture or description including the body you want painted. Obviously, shortcourse bodies are large and eat up way more materials than a buggy body. But to give an “average” 1/10th shells are $45, 1/8 scale $50, and shortcourse $60. That is just an average price, these prices can go up or down depending on the paint scheme. I can add painted headlights and grillwork for additional cost. Some schemes have a ton of pinstripes that add to cost. Etc.
4. Does that price include the body?
5. Do you give a discount if I order more than one?
Typically no. Explanation: Each body takes as much material and time no matter how many I do at a time, I keep my prices very fair, and it is not economical for me to go any lower.
6. Can you sponsor me?
Believe me, I would love to if I was wealthy, lol. I do this for a job, so it is extremely hard to add any drivers to the KG sponsor list.
7. Can I send you my body to have painted?
Yes! But please include contact info and a little note or picture of what you want painted. Some days 5 or 6 packages arrive here, and to expedite the process, this information is very important to include in the package.
8. Do you work on the barter system at all?
Yes! We race, at times I will trade out paint for items we can use in our race program.
9. Do you take credit cards?
Yes, but only thru paypal right now.
