i agree. i dont know what the prices are around your area but i cant see you getting much of a quality job for $500. i dont know of any bodyshop around here that will paint a whole car for under $2000. if you are forced to go with one of the 2 then use the guy that will put omni on the car. just by what the other guy told you tells me he knows nothing and is out to decieve you. as a customer you should not have to tell the painter how many coats of clear to put on. he is the professional and should know how to do his job properly. most manufacturers recommend 2-3 coats. i really dont think 150-200 will cover the materials on a basecoat/clearcoat job. it will be enough for the guy using the polyurethane because its generally cheaper and doesn't use a clearcoat. your car was originally painted with basecoat/clearcoat.
