    I had my car painted by my brother when he was in tech school for autoboy repair. It isn't perfect but it is good enough and it only cost me parts and material. You could check that out maybe.

    A shitty paint job can actually look decent with a good buffing in the end. Or at least that has been my experience. I really need to paint my car is looks like total shit...

    The one day in glendora gets a big :thumbsup: from me, best looking cheap jobs around. Earl schieb is sooooo much worse, and from what i have seen macco is just as bad. If you want to cruise out there for an estimate let me know, they give/ my friends better prices because we have all had our cars done there.

    I'm looking at around $3500 for my next paint job... before negotiation, a "buddy" discount, and a possible sponsorship deal of course. :)
