Road safety is often about trade offs. A concrete barrier offers significant protection for pedestrians and cyclists, but adds a new collision hazard for motorists. How do we decide if it’s beneficial overall? #RoadSafety #VisionZero
Now if you could all chip in a dollar each, we should be able to get this repaired...
Surely it won’t cost that much to fix the train? Maybe a paint touch-up job…
To varnish, or not to varnish?That is the question. (answers very welcome)
Do it, doesn’t cost you much and will likely save you having to touch up a paint job or two at a later date
Seems easy. If motorists lose control, do something stupid, or drive distracted it’s clearly better they kill someone than damage their car!!! Hello. Those things cost real money, and sometimes the repair shop does an inferior touch up job on the paint!!
this is shit people would do in my dads day. How pathetic that we’re 20 and people still can’t grow up Hope the repairs can be under $200 for a touch up paint job. (no one come after me i really don’t know how much they cost)
If @ikamalhaasan bought that the touch up job on the paint wouldn't cost much.
I should point out that there's a reason the car cost less than $20k. The hood's paint job needs a touch-up
It does cost if it’s not paint or a design that’s currently standard. It’s does cost more if it’s a total new paint job as opposed to a touch up.And there’s no point. It’s pissing away cash for nothing.
To a painter when you say touch up paint job we will roll our eyes and look for the exit, we’re not interested in saving you money we just want to do a good job and be paid for it, the best advice I can give is ask the painter for an hourly rate and give him/her the exact paint from the same tins you used when you last painted if you don’t have these then it’s a full paint job
Not knowing the circumstances of the particular “classic” cars, I can only give you a general answer. Older, classic cars are nearly always repainted. When repainting a car, there are an enormous number of variables, mostly revolving around cost and quality. A high-quality paint job, especially for a show car can easily exceed $10,000 and involves many hours of prep work and lots of expensive material. The difference becomes obvious when you view a cheap paint job next to a quality paint job. On a quality job, there is no waviness or variations in the body shape or lines. The color is completely even and consistent across the entire body and the surface is as smooth and shiny as glass, with no fine scratches, orange peel, chips, discolorations or dust specks. This level of quality in the basic paint often requires a perfectly prepped, dust-free environment to spray in, and everything is taken into consideration. From paint compatibility to static electricity, and even gun angle, distance and coverage speed. Once the color coat is applied, checked, re-prepped and any corrections made, the clear coat is applied. On show cars, in order to achieve depth, sometimes multiple clear coats are added. This is something the factory does not do, so a show car can easily look much better than a factory-painted new car. In some custom paint jobs, tints can be added to the coats of clear. When applied over a light or reflective color, like pearl white or silver, this can give it a deep “candy” effect, which is quite stunning. After the final clear coat has cured, the entire car is gone over to look for any surface imperfections, which will need to be buffed and touched up. Quality paint products from makers like PPG or 3M can be used with machine buffers to polish paint to a mirror shine. When a final wax coat is applied, you should see no imperfections whatsoever. For those looking for a good result on a factory car finish, this starts with a very thorough detergent wash, rinse with deionized water, and a good polishing, with a fine cutting compound, to polish out any scratches and factory orange peel. This is always done with a quality rotary buffer using light pressure. The final wax is also machine applied and buffed. A second wax coat can be added if desired. Once finished, the car should never require cutting again, only washing and re-waxing.
If you have a minor scratch( a scratch line ) you can use a Touch-up paint. If the scratches & dents are a bit bigger then prefer to go for a complete panel paint job. Prices may vary from a car market to a authorized workshop Brand of paint preferred to be used Du Pont. Below is the estimate price according to the place you go Car Market Price- Rs. 800- Rs 1000 per panel. (no authenticity of paint, they may use the cheapest paint which may become yellowish in few months) Small Workshop Price - Rs 1200 per panel. Standard workshops like Bosh/Mobil Workshops Price - Rs 1500 - Rs 1800 per panel ( You may get a warranty of 1 year) Authorized Workshop Price - Rs. 3000 - Rs 4000 If you have a metallic or a pearl paint add Rs 500 - Rs 800 additional to the above price.
One month out, the store is usually completely built and painted. The interior is ready for setup. The managers usually have a punch list of final touch ups that the builders must complete (minor things usually) before they can sign off and the company can take full possession. Different companies will have different timelines for this. The month before a store opens, the interior shelves and displays are getting assembled usually by a crew of seasoned employees called (un-creatively) “new store openers”. These are department leaders who are picked to travel the region and finalize the store before opening. Also during this time, the managers are finishing up the hiring for a store. A new Walmart could see an opening population of 800 while a new Kohls will see it around 300. This population will drop drastically after the new store opening is complete. During this time, all the new hires are being trained. Cashiers will be trained on mock equipment or at another store. Unloaders and stockers will learn the merchandise as dozens (hundreds for Walmart) of truckloads of non-perishable merchandise are processed into the dock then onto the floor. Final touches are put on the registers and some other IT equipment. As the final two weeks approach, frozen food is stocked. Then in the few days before the store is opened, the fresh food is stocked with the shortest shelf life food stocked just before pre-opening. In reality, the new store opening lasts a full month. The store is usually opened a week before grand opening with a caveat to customers, “we aren't officially opened yet” alerting them that not all merchandise will be stocked and to expect a lot of employee traffic. This also allows floor crew and cashiers to practice “live” before the official grand opening. After grand opening, the training and refining continues for a month (as mentioned). Because of this, some new store openers may remain. The stores will run with very heavy payroll to allow for untrained employees to learn the ropes and gain heuristics that come from doing the job live, with customers. As the store transitions beyond the first month, payroll is cut back to standard operating labor costs.
The big cost of painting your aircraft with a beach scene (as shown in the question) is not the initial paint job; it's everything else... Colors on aircraft fade quickly... The aircraft fly at high altitudes and get bombarded with UV light that makes colors look faded. However, plain white paint doesn't "look faded." So the parts of an aircraft with colored paint need to be repainted more frequently. In this case, the whole plane would need to be repainted frequently. Paint chips.... The skin of the aircraft expands and contracts during a flight. This causes the paint to crack and chip off. It doesn't show much with white paint because the aircraft is white. However, it shows a lot when the aircraft is painted a non-white color. This means getting more touch ups to fix the obvious chips. You get less money when you sell... Like someone buying a house knowing they'll have to renovate, buyers pay less for painted aircraft because they know they'll have to re-paint the whole thing (because most airlines fly planes that are mostly white). The Highest Cost of All: Opportunity Cost.... There's a reason they don't close a factory to paint it; lots of potential revenue is lost. With an airline, the planes are the factory, and the planes are only making money when they're in the air. Every time you stop flying a plane to paint (or re-paint) it the airline is losing far more money than the cost of the paint job; they're losing the money they would have made by selling tickets if the plane was still flying.
Do you regret something you did as a police officer? Yes, but not in a way that most might imagine. I was raised to be scrupulously honest. This has not always served me well in work situations although my conscience has remained clear. I was working deep nights when a storm was approaching, and while checking the National Guard armory a gate that I needed to drive through and secure got pushed by a huge gust of wind. A little piece of metal wire made a scratch in the white part of the vehicle paint barely above the running board on the rear passenger side (full sized SUV). Instead of saying nothing and hoping that no one could pinpoint when it occurred or trying to cover it with touch up paint, I followed the department policy to the letter and listed it on my end of shift vehicular report. I mistakenly assumed that I might have nothing happen or might get charged the nominal cost for a bottle of touch up paint from the dealership which at that time cost less than 5 USD. Nope. I had a sad excuse for a supervisor who was known for being petty, racist and a bully. He wrote me up for discipline as if I had caused major damage doing something reckless like speeding on ice or off-road for fun. Unfortunately, those higher up the chain of command did not stand up against the obviously petty bullying, and I got a full day off without pay. It was enough money to pay for my gasoline for the month or to pay a utility bill, so it hurt. We were not bn unionized, but that incident definitely showed me the value of having a union to stand up for individual workers who are otherwise fairly powerless in at will employment. Some more senior officers from a nearby agency told me that I should have called one of them to bring me some white typing correction fluid to fill in the scratch if it was in the white paint or a black permanent marker if it was in the black paint instead of giving a known @$$hole a chance to mess me over for no good reason. They said I should have gone to the dealer and bought the touch up paint once they opened right after my shift ended because that's all those jerks who messed me over ultimately used on the vehicle anyway. It was a hard lesson in “the real world.” If this “discipline” taught me anything, it was that “fairness” is often a convenient illusion or talking point and that bullies and cowards often prevail over those who try to do the right thing. Shortly after my tiny scratch cost me more money than if I had paid to have the entire door painted at a repair shop, two white male officers caused ,major, damage to vehicles. Neither were treated as they should have been if policy was equally applied to everyone. One was near retirement and had horrible eyesight and bad habits. He hit a citizen’s vehicle in the rear. He had run a stop sign that he had been seen to run regularly while making a right hand turn only a few blocks from HQ. He was driving the same SUV that I had given a two inch, light scratch near the running board. He was ordered to have multiple unpaid days off, and he told them to piss off instead. The department had to pay out for that accident with the citizen and repair the department vehicle, and it cost the officer ,nothing, because he ,refused to accept the consequences,. They didn't dock his pay or write him up for insubordination, ,which should have happened per policy. A second young officer who was already a screw up (but connected to others with influence) disregarded direct orders during a big ice storm. Everyone was directed to ,not, patrol and to go from HQ to various protected positions spread out where we could wait safely in heated buildings with our cars close and relatively protected in case of emergency calls only. Even routine call responses were suspended due to the extreme weather hazard, but this young idiot decided that he was ,bored, and wanted to drive around the empty streets in ,subzero, weather on solid ice. He barely made it two blocks from where he was supposed to be before he hit a high curb so hard that it took the patrol car out of service with major damage. Others were placed at risk even to go to the accident location in such harsh conditions. The supervisor who had to respond to work the collision on that occasion was the same jerk who wrote me up for a scratch in the paint, so his hypocrisy was obvious when all of the idiocy was smoothed away despite thousands of dollars of damage being done. Once again, someone who exercised bad judgment placing others at risk (and in this case additionally violated a direct order) didn't get disciplined or lose any money. I was angry and disappointed. I decided after the second incident with nonsense excuses for the disparate treatment that I was ready to leave the agency and go to law school. There had already been other issues with ridiculous behavior from a few male officers, and it gets exhausting after a while being the odd person out carrying extra burdens related to race and/or gender in addition to trying to simply do one's job. I left for law school in 1991. If I was going to put up with $#!+ in every job, I would rather be paid decently for it and not sustain any additional permanent damage to my body. There are no decisions that I made with regard to my interactions with the public that I regret. I am a woman of color who started in law enforcement in the 1980s when I was a rarity. I was the first person of color (male or female) at one city to ever be on patrol, and it was a hellish experience a lot of the time for me. I was raised in a family that was keenly aware of the consequences of people being treated poorly because of ridiculous things like their color or gender, so I would never do that to someone else. I believe that people should be allowed to keep their dignity when possible even if they make mistakes and get arrested. I spoke to people even while arresting them to keep them from serious physical harm, and when force was necessary I used my professional training and good judgment based on actual conditions to make decisions (not fear or biases and stereotypes about certain groups). I never caused serious injury even to people who tried to harm me, but I took care of what was needed to keep the public safe (often despite their choices). I believe that a measure of how well I treated people even while known to be an officer with lots of activity including enforcement actions was that I frequently had people thank me for how I treated them. I can still recall the astonishment in the face of a dispatcher who once saw me doing a release from our city's holding cells of someone I had arrested hours earlier for multiple charges. The gentleman paused just before exiting to our lobby which was by dispatch. He thanked me for the way that I treated him, giving him the information he needed to get his moving violations and other legal issues handled as well as treating him “like a human.” He was an openly gay man in a place and time where being treated decently was sadly not his usual experience. He was clearly moved at being treated with basic respect, called “sir” and not roughly handled. He asked if he could give me a hug, and as my gun was still in a lock box, he had been searched by me earlier and he was no physical danger, I gave him the hug and some personal encouragement. I told him that he seemed like a nice person who had made some bad choices but that was no excuse for anyone to treat him poorly. I told him that the best way that he could thank me would be to get his life together and to not use the ugly behavior of some as an excuse to mess up his life with drugs and foolish legal problems. Not only did he fix his legal issues, but he came back to let me know that he had given up all drugs (mainly marijuana) and that he had gotten his life on a better track in general. In addition, he had contacted the city manager and chief of police to let them know about the positive things from our interaction which could have gone a very different direction. I only discovered what he had done when they called me to the city manager’s office where I was met by him, the chief and my now reformed former arrestee. It was one of those days that reminded me of why I became a police officer, to help people. The dispatcher was a white male a couple of years younger than me who hoped to be a police officer. He asked me a lot of questions about my interaction with the guy I had released including what I had done in the field, which charges were filed or not and why, etc. He asked many questions at other times following that incident as well. He was honest about me being a different type of officer from what he had observed to that point, and it appeared to intrigue him that I was quite effective and professional but so different in my approach from the norm at that time. I sometimes wonder what kind of police officer he became and if I had any influence over his path.
NO, do NOT do it. Most people that do an aerosol job (I assume you don’t have professional equipment) don’t take the time to disassemble the bike completely, prepare the surface, or anything else for an OK paint job. Our bicycle paint jobs- if you bring the frame and fork (bike unassembled)- start at $300 which includes stripping to bare metal, follow up with hand sanding, epoxy primer, sand again, base coat (if necessary), color coat, decal application (extra cost), and clear coat (extra cost). It is then cured for up to 2 weeks and polished before ready for delivery. I understand that many people that want to paint their bike discover that the new paint job will cost more than their bike, and to this I say that they should keep it as-is. It’s true, paint is partly to protect stuff from corrosion… to avoid this just get a bottle of clear fingernail polish (or colored if that’s what you want) and touch up the spots.
I agree with all points in the response given by ,Swagat Patasahani,. I would like to answer this straight to the point without diverting to other points such as updating the vehicle papers, etc, which has already been touched up on by Swagat. If you’re repainting, don’t go in for a quick job in which the painter will mask the rest of the bike leaving the parts to be painted exposed and then paint without having to remove the parts. Have all the parts disassembled and then paint them individually, which will yield a showroom-like finish if the painter is skilled. Strip off the old paint and then go for iron oxide + primer + paint + lacquer. Here, the lacquer will yield the matte finish. There are different grades of matte lacquers available ranging from satin to rough matte. Choose right at the beginning. Insist that you want at least 2 coats of paint and 2 to 3 coats of lacquer for good longevity. Regarding the raw materials, I suggest you go in for 2K acrylic paint - Du Pont is a good brand. The raw materials would roughly cost you around Rs 4500 to 5000 for the whole motorcycle - I guess mud guards, chain guard, head casquette, air filter box, left and right toolboxes, tank. You can even paint the chassis and center stand in Desert Storm like the company does, else keep it black along with other small parts. The labor cost in India would be another Rs 3000 odd for the entire motorcycle depending on the skill and reputation of the painter. Which means you’ll have to spend roughly around Rs 9000 for the entire job, including disassembly and fitting. Edit 1 (28-Aug-2018): It’s been over 2 years I answered this A2A :) Just wanted to update the cost of raw materials in point 4 and the labour cost in point 5. Add Rs 500 to 1000 to the cost of raw materials and Rs 1500 to 2000 to the labour cost. As of today, a good paint job would roughly cost you around Rs 11,000. Rest of the points are still valid. Please stop by, read, and follow my space. Content contribution welcome!
