    Looks good! Looked fine to me before too though. I don't people expect landscaper/lawn service trucks to look perfect. Mine has a few bumps and bruises for sure. I'd hate to have it all fixed and have to start worrying about scratching and/or denting it again, lol.

    I mainly do property preservation work on foreclosures for the bank, and that work it does not matter what you look like going to work but this year I have picked up about 20 good residential accts in real high end neighborhoods and looking professional is what allot of these folks look for so I thought why not if you look better and could help get more work.

    Wow...that looks great...nice price also...2 year warranty doesn't sound like a lot though...would it be possible, in your case, to have paid more for a longer warranty?

    I've been considering getting a new coat on my truck, but I have a lot of other stuff that needs done first...

    Two year warranty on a $750.00 paint job sounds pretty good to me!!

    Paint looks great... Now you should de-yellow those driving lights!!

    The paint job was $350 and a extra $200 for the door jams and the rest was body work so if the paint does not hold up after 2 years I could have the whole thing sprayed again for $350 because I would not need body work or the door jams also the other car I have had them do was a little over a year ago and still looks like they did it yesterday. As for the lights I put these little lights on it last night they look like HID lights at night and they were only $20 bucks at walmart and look really cool at night.

    750 for an overall paint job with a 2 year warranty an get a nice job , That shop has trucks to paint for years with those prices , it has to be acryalic enamel , I like enamel better anyways ,, base/clear coat is expensive to spray an for the money its really not worth it!!
