This may scare some peopole, but when I had both 914s painted, dents removed, fenders flared, etc I had them done in Tijuana. Cost was approx 1/3 of what shops in San Diego were quoting me. I bought Dupont two-stage paint, primer, etc and they did the rest. I took in in on Monday and gave them all week to do it and it turned out great. They also have exact fabric/carpet/etc material matches because of the VW factory in Mexico. As an example, the cost of materials on the 914 race car was $275, cost to get it done was $550, including removing the seals, smoothing the stretched fenders, etc. Worry about things getting stolen, no, I worry more in San Diego.
