some guy that works for a paint shop told me to get the 600 dollar paint job which I believe includes 1 layer of clear coat..but he told me to give him an extra $150 on the side and he will throw in 3 more coats of clear with 3 year warranty. I will fix all the dents/dings on the car before I take the car to them. Do you guys think the paint job will come out decent and last for a while ?? I will be paying $875 total

I deff hit up 87coupe his work its awsome....
Earlsheiwb paint right here 850 jabs,trunk, etc...they look good just they dont stage paint unless u pay crazy amount and for that might aswell look for a real legit looking paint job but I went their beacuse well in a bit its gonna be my nephews so no need for the super fancy job...but consider 87coupe his paint wrk is awsome he quoted me very little over from what I paid and I mean very little consider him before anything......ok well here is what I got some orange peel that wont be able to wet sand because clear and paint are pre mixed but consider that I havent yet tryied to buff the car bro but it looks good...
