paranoid over what?!! wish you choose a different color? the bodywork bad? looks good from this side except for, hard to say this, the ebay headlights. Sorry dude i know you like them but i like EVERYTHING else you've done so don't get too mad at me.. Glad you stayed silver too. I think it really shows the body lines especially on the fenders. What paint code did you use? OEM style? Congrats ion your fresh new car. I wouldn't be able to stay home. Just would want to drive it around and look at myself pass by store front windows (which i'm sure you've already done ).

Nah not mad bro, You entitled to your opinion... I gotta ask the guy the paint code... I like the color. He didnt really clean the interior, I guess becuase I am not accustomed to it being so dusty inside... I just need a day with it, To get her back to her clean self

Oh and I drove around for a few too lol (how you know that... lmao)...

Cause that's what we all do when we do a new mod!!.. Some people won't admit it. But i will.. Sheeeit i even do it after i detail my car sometimes .

I know what you mean about leaving the inside dirty. when i got my windows tinted they left soap spots all over the inside and and after they painted my roof it was dusty as hell in there too. I cleaned it myself but was kinda disappointed they didn't do it for me. Kinda 1/2 assed i thought.

what ever i got my work off of trade so i came up on the deal. Congrats and carefull of that soft paint for the next 2 weeks. Bird doo doo is a ***** effer on it.

That is affirmative! Seeing that really pisses me off!!! What shops will do to save some time, if it was an over look... fine. I'm a victim of a complete botched job. I recommend checking your car periodically cause if that was not an over look, the whole damn car is gonna will follow sorry, just an upset customer. Not just around the trunk bar will pill as said, thats just where it starts and may run...

good luck, you may be just fine... My shops owners are VERY nice and VERY hard to be mad at them. They've painted my car 3 times already and I keep getting the same results... I dont call it bad prep work anymore, I call it people who dont know how to paint!
