good job for getting a good job. most kids pay 100 to get their reps painted. at least you're doing quality paint. 300 is decent

Yeah I probably could have got him down a little more but he's also wet sanding my hood. It was repainted a year and a half ago and it's got some orange peel so he said he'd wetsand and buff it too. I was happy with the price. A chain body shop wanted $400 to just paint and not install. I figured I'd support support a local business instead and save some money.
