Orange peel, Cheap paint, Chips erratically, Shine will be non-exsistent in the tri-state area after a few months. That's just from what i've seen, since i've never let them paint anything of mine.

IMO, you will end up spending more money in the long run because you would eventually ending up getting everything re-prepped once painted again. The chipping will look nasty as sh!t and you might not have money to get it replaced at the point in time.

dood $50 bucks to paint a whole kit? That will surely chip within like the first week. I think that's one spray w/o prep work or shop/supply fees.

Personally, I think any kit + qualitly painted/installed on your car you are looking at ~800-1K+. Unless, you have a hook up somewhere

ah, well you can get a new w-type kit for the coupe, painted by wings west, shipped to your door for around 900 i believe.

email armen at www.newwayautosports.com , he regularly puts up buy it now auctions and he'll honor the same price.

If you're buying it used i'd try to find a reputable local shop, remember you get what you pay for.

You can go to Protege racing? He's on the GB forum.

Great guys and i believe tyhe quoted around the high 800's painted directly from WW. WW is supposed to offer paint match guarantee, but the down side is the turn around is ~1 month.

Mine was painted within a week, and took a week to get shipped to me
