total respray

i'm going to have my car professionally painted in another colour and was wondering if anyone has had this done and what trim pieces need to be replaced either broken or bent during removal, the bodyshop has done an rrs recentley and said that quite a lot of things broke when removed for painting but didn't say what.

I would not do that... Unless you're planning the professional body shop complete teardown of the range so they can spray door jams, engine bay, behind trim etc etc... 15-20k USD

Otherwise you'll end up with a range that's green in some posts and a different color in others. Potential buys will suspect damage based on the re-paint. Plus if they're just masking it up and painting the overspray is going to be terrible.

My opinion anyway...

I have to agree. Resprays never come out as good as the original paint. If you heart is set on white look for another Rangie in the colour you want.
It can look as good as original, usually better if the right shop is performing the job, its just a massive project that will end up costing more than a 2002 RR anyway. `)

A good shop will have every bit of the car out, doors off, windows out, trim removed, and repaint the whole thing back up from raw metal.

I guess I should have been more specific, but we are indeed on the same page. Unless you are gutting the truck for the repaint there will always be places that the masking shows or the original paint shows.
Exactly! I've even had fender benders and had shops repair and repaint the damage and it's always mind blowing how over spray from work on a bumper can end up all over the rest of the car.
