I agree, 1,000 hours is a lot of time and money...but, as you mentioned, nothing is perfect and I could have put more time into it to get closer to that "perfect".

they are say'n 240+ hours more, cars already in primer.
even if you blow through 80 hours blocking the primer that's 2 weeks of blocking primer on a tiny car. then spray the ss paint I'll be crazy and say 20 hours 4 times the time needed
then another 80 hours to wet sand the color
all three with way over the needed time to block,spray,wet sand.
is still 180 hours
they are quoting it needing 240 to 320 hours.
that's 60 to 140 more than my generous time table.
for a car this size
