Re: [T3] Paint


The one thing that really irks me is when a seller will repaint the car
prior to the sale, thus using that action as justification for a higher
selling cost.  100% of the time that I've witnessed such an action, the
paint job is cheap in every sense of the word (over-spray (esp. on seals),
orange peel, bubbling, fade, uneven coloration, "new" color outside but
stock color on inside, etc.) and in just a couple months the car begins to
look like crap.  It makes for a more laboring job for the new owner as
well (upkeep, repaint).
