So 4 figures for an excellent paint job?
Maaco often runs this special of $250, which sounded a bit cheap for paint. Can't even get a timing belt replaced for that price [ok no comparison there...]
For this car, all we would really want is something basic. there is no metal damage.
As the 2001 stratus'* are not worth much to begin with, we will not be paying $1,000'* for a paint job. I amy take my chances and do the in-need areas myself. It could not look worse than what it does.
Thanks for the replies
