The first car I had painted at a cheap shop was done at Earl Scheib's in Boise, ID, back around 1985. A little 63 Rambler American, green with a white top. I was stationed at Mtn. Home AFB, about an hour south. I took EVERYTHING I could off the car, even bumpers, and drove it up there. Had a screwdriver so I could remove the tail lights when I arrived. I had done all the prep, and didn't sand good enough in some places, so some scratches shown through. I got a call from the shop reporting this, and they asked if they could keep it a few more days as they thought a second coat of paint would hide the scratches. I asked how much, and they said nothing! They were impressed that I had done so much to make their job easy, and I was obviously proud of the car. Sure, I can wait a few more days...

Used them and a couple of others , ( One Day and Same Day) Allways prepped and removed everything. Did the "Jammin " myself. Never an issue.
