Right, Right and did I mention that you where Right...Prep is the major part on any paint job...With out good prep, there is no reason to paint a vehicle...I won't...I used to send vehicles back to the prep line when I worked flat rate and even when I worked straight time. People do get excited and the laymen will call poor prep work a bad paint job...and in a way I guess their shouldn't have been painted.

Now that I'm in a position to work on the vehicles I want to work on and when I want to work on them...I insist I do all my own prep work...That way I know that it's done to the standards I want...It used to take me months to train a good prep person and a good prepper is way under rated and deserves to get paid in the same range as a good painter...they go hand in hand.
