The man said "Dont take this the wrong way" and you did. Good or bad a forum is for "discussion", sometimes we may not like what we read. If you want to throw a fit, delete your pics, etc because you didn't get the answer you wanted and leave then CYA......in a day or 2.

I have personally been to MMT's shop. He has a high dollar paint booth and expensive equipment. All of the bodies I have seen at his shop are not $250 paint jobs. Even at $1200 your getting a deal from him. All of this equipment has to be paid for somehow. I would be willing to bet money Deckers equipment cost even MORE than what MMT has. If you want a cheap paint job + body your probly gonna have to do it yourself with your own but keep in mind the materials are probly going to cost you more than a few hundred dollars. Last Body I bought was $600 then you'll have to buy the materials on top of that......


Good luck with your paint job and don't PM me with your personal greivances against others.

For whoever is keeping score on fees: Just got my ds body painted, $550 by a local body shop who has worked on golf cart bodies before. Metallic single color (DuPont), existing body I supplied had scratches, couple small holes, he said they are a P.I.T.A. to do. Flawless job he did. Now I need my new 80" top painted to match...

OK, call me dumb but I don't understand the quote above. Is there something I should know about Plum Quick Motors, especially before I buy one? Thanks

Oops!
Let's be clear, there is nothing that I know of wrong, or even suspect about Plum Quick motors

This post has nothing to do with the quality of their product.

Scuba, I'm a gasser guy, but I have never heard anthing bad about PQ motors.

Thanks essness

Was going to order one this morning. I've only had my cart for a couple of months and saw the results of the PQ motor on AS's cart. He seems to have some issues about half throttle before taking off and a new member has some no throttle to full throttle issues and also has a PQ motor. Want to purchase a PQ but wrong thread to post questions on so I guess Iíll start a new one.

Thanks again

No, nothing wrong with PQ motors. Most people A$$ume because EMP was a site sponsor that PQ motors must suck.

Is that a form of double entendre?

Yes while he did say " Don`t Take this the wrong way" He sure lambasted him hard in doing so. Makes it hard NOT to take it the wrong way. NOW "don`t take this the wrong way!!" But I read Mike promoting his business (and other dealers) quite a bit. Not directly , but indirectly. No doubt he has a lot of money tied up in his equipment, and does fantastic work. Thats his job. But a lot of us here don`t have bottomless pockets for which to spend on our toys. AR was just asking for a cheaper place to get HIS Cart body painted. As he thought $1000 was a bit much for a "paint job" Ok "custom" paint job, which in his mind was just a solid color. NOT graphics. And for which he never got an answer. All he got was put down by just about everyone who posted a reply. And I see more and more of this happening since I joined. Yes I know I haven`t been here that long, but I have seen a difference since I joined. This forum gives out great info, and a lot of heckling between members, myself included, which is in fun, but come on, the reply from MMT was a bit harsh and self promoting. I`ve done body repair for over 20 years. I know what is involved and how much equipment costs. But I really don`t think thats what this forum is about. Its about us "do it yourselfers" that don`t have all the knowledge about these carts and a lot of money, that rely on all of you that have been in the game awhile and more or less do this for a living. MMT included. Hes given some fantastic info in here, But to tell a guy he gets "ticked" when he hears them saying something costs too much. That is a "DEALER" talking.
I`ve said my 2 cents worth...oh heck maybe a dollars worth. So you all can pick on me now over my statements.

Hey CartTrader,
I gotta tell ya, I'm not in the business. I simply take exception to someone asking for opinions and then getting mad when they don’t like what’s said. I stated earlier in this thread that his original post sounded as though he was looking for the body and custom paint. That's what he said! Later he explains that he has the body and simply looking for someone to do color and clear. So, like I said, for a body and custom paint $1000.00 is a great price.

I also think if you are going to ask the question in this type of forum, you need to be prepared to get all types of answers. Some you just won’t like.

Agree or disagree with Mikes reply, AR goes on to slam the entire community?

I personally like it here because I get opinions that I like and some I don’t like. With-in that feedback, I can make better decisions on how to proceed.

The same way I appreciate your feedback in this post which has caused me to re-think my approach with AR? I have, and I stand by my original response. The beauty of it is we don’t all have to agree, we simply need to know and understand that we are all different and will think differently……that’s why we ask for opinions.

Sincerely appreciate your thoughts.

BTW, I see a bunch of people answered the question and even spoke to the diff. between paint and OEM color body.
