Repainting recommendations
« on: October 23, 2021, 02:43:10 PM »
Thinking about repainting my 01 Xterra.  Does anyone have a recommendation for an LA/OC area shop?  Nothing fancy, just restore the original factory color.

If you wheel your Xterra and are a DIY type person, Do it yourself. I knew nothing about painting cars but had a compressor so thought why not. Did a little research and bought the necessary supplies. Any decent auto paint supplier can match your color. I painted My IH Scout in a little over a day. It was a great experience. Not going to say it was show quality in the end but it looked a lot better than before. Kept the rust out and covered the old pin striping. If you need your X to look like show quality then ignore this post.

Another route, if suffer from trail stripes, is to use Monstaliner or similar.  I did the lower half of mine and it was an easy roll-on job.  They have great colors too.
Be careful when you follow the masses..... sometimes the "M" is silent.
