I love the white ,can't wait to see the new decals installed .As for the rockers ,I feel that is nasty ,but to each his own .
I can't believe they sprayed the paint with the headlight grills still in place but masked  . This shop is scaring me ,as any compitant shop would have painted the front end while they were removed

I was thinking the same





Although if were my T/A ,I would do something differant ,like the new YO bird with the flat black  look. But I would change the gold areas to red or blue for a white car,unless your running gold snowflakes,then I would keep the gold .I think it would look radical !

From the pictures, you can def tell some areas are not perfect, however, 3500 does not buy a perfect paint/body job. At least in my area. If you said 7500-10k, then I would expect better. Overall, it is not bad considering what you paid.
