first of all:

 

happy new year, TC fellas!

 

never even thought of getting a TC painted...but...just in case....( I get a yellow TC) I want it black...

I assume, that the molded pieces on doors and fenders do come off but will never look as good when reinstalled...cant think of anything else that might be tough to paint...

 

 ( does anyone have a pic of a door without it? )  because if it looks "ok", I might as well take them off and leave em off....

 

Any suggestions of a good body shop in the LA area? that does the job for a decent price and acceptable quality?

Decent price will be the problem. My son had his 1963 Plymouth Belvedere repainted by a quality shop, that removed ALL items that covered any painted part of the body.

My son paid somewhere around $8,700 and that was about 15 years ago. The good thing is that the car still looks as good as the day it was painted.

Since you want a yellow car painted black, EVERYTHING WILL HAVE TO COME OFF including , WELL......."EVERYTHING!"

I'm afraid it will cost you several times what you are considering paying for the whole car in the first place.

Just remember that any chip in the paint is probably going to show the yellow paint. Move any body part around and you are likely to see a yellow line next to the part. I think you should just wait for the right car to come around. That is part of the reason that I say color and location have a great deal to do with the value of a TC, along with original paint and leather in good condition bringing a premium. A repaint with color change will cost you a lot more than just transporting the correct car from another rust free state. Oh, and black on black with a black top in SoCal is a recipe for heat stroke when you first get in the car, I know first hand how hot that combo gets out here in the inland empire, much worse than when I was in Louisiana with my car.
