I was actually at Goldenwest right down the street a couple weeks ago (had to, as that's where the paint is warrantied by the dealership). They're a bunch of clowns.
golden west isnt bad but they dont specialize in paint, they are a collision shop, they also use sherwin williams withc freaking blows.
we will take care of you man!

I wish we could The dealership warrantied the paint protection plan through Goldenwest and when the paint started oxidizing we didn't have a choice the Sherwin Williams paint just went bad (fading) so we had them redo it under their warranty. They even went so far as to call SW in to see what went wrong.

we use Dupont paints
nason series for single stage and Cromax pro waterborne for base/clear.
we also offer a lifetime warranty on spot repairs when all the trim is removed

Oliver, I just talked with my mom - how much to paint both passenger's side door handles on an '01 Sequoia with metallic paint.

EDIT: actually just the front pass door handle, the rear is fine

in our 16 years living up here we've never actually had an incident on 17 aside from 5 broken windshields (mine twice, my dads twice, and the Sequoia once). If we do though, I know how to call
