as the paint is tired from the showroom rub down it got way tomany times.. that killed the paint..

not many are dumping 10k on a paint job on a 1500.oo -10k car..
and there are tons of these in the hobby. no matter if YOU don't do them
Well I guess I will say it again not the type of work I DO , no matter how many guys are out there in the hobby. I try to stay away from these CHEAP type of paint jobs for the simple reason that most of these guys are looking for perfection even though they claim they don't want to spend a ton of money, believe me when I tell you. See it all the time, these guys will go all over the car nit picking everything they can and then bad mouth the poor guy that tried to give them what THEY PAID FOR in the first place.I will glady pass on those.......
