Default Where can I buy parts in PSM?

Does anyone know if there are online sites that sell paint matched subaru parts? i've found a bunch of unpainted parts and a lot of dealers that don't even let you browse a catalog...

I don't know if you are interested in painting yourself but Grimmspeed sells PSM paint.

yes I would be...but I need to know that the paint matches. I can get PSM mixed in a rattle can at my local NAPA. the match is good but you can still tell the difference.

Anyone have any experience with Grimmspeed PSM?

the vast majority of parts do not come painted.

Don't go to napa....go to a real body shop....I had a pint of PSM mixed up at Wesco for $60, matched perfectly....paint code 01g.

Thanks for the bit of advise. did you have to use a clear top coat? or did you just primer and spray?

I disagree as well - if you paint an entire panel its close, but if you paint and area of a panel its obvious. Also different clears cane affect how it looks in sunlight.

I like GRimmspeed, but its not perfect. When the body shop painted my STI hoodscoop it was perfect.

thats a very open ended question and not nearly enough information to give you a guesstimate.

i don't really know what all goes into painting a car. I would just get what ever color parts and spray the outside another color. I just don't know how much it would be and thought that some one who has done this would have a better idea.

almost all of the cost comes from body work.

again...it really depends on how much needs to be done on YOUR car. Basic single stage re-sprays can be as little as $1500.

Full blown single-stage show quality paint work can be $10k+.

what kind of parts are you looking for....???

for used parts that work, yea- check your local pull-a-part or whatever. In terms of NEW parts, thats a loooong shot.
