Details Rich, we need details, ...at least I do.
Well quite honestly, at this time of year I really don't have the extra brain cells to think about it much.

But I've seen far too many paint jobs that wound up looking like something out of a comic book that a super hero would drive. I would hate to wind up with something that would make me feel silly to drive in public with. I recently saw an example on the cover of a Corvette rag that actually made my skin crawl just to look at it. The interior was even worse.

When it gets closer to the time, I guess there are some magazines and websites showing custom paint jobs, so I'll just browse until I see something that catches my eye....

Thanks!
I know it's a older post but Roslund's Paint and Body does great work! They are over on Tharpe St. The only bad part is they get backed up.

Yeah, that sounds like the logical way for a service manager to view things. Helps to build the PR thing and get the people comfortable with coming in the door.

I was at a local battery/service place having a battery replaced and overheard one of the service guys telling a lost customer that they charge the same for an oil change whether you bring your oil or use theirs. I'm sure that for the cost of that oil, they permanently lost a customer. Penny wise and dollar foolish....
