If you're just doing this to resell it go for that deal under 500, but I've never seen a $500 paint job that lasts. For roughly 2 years it should hold up fine.

If it'* strictly for resale value, do it. If somebody looks at the car and something glaring stands out at them, they may be more inclined to nitpick and look for more problems, and try dicketing the price lower. If there'* less to complain about, then there'* less to dicker over and you have an easier time selling.

Make sure to look at some of their other work before committing. Make sure they're worth the money...

I'm surprised they won't touch it. It'* not like it'* UNIBODY rust that will cause a safety concern. I've gone to several shops to get quotes to fix rust before, and they just state they can't guarantee it won't return. They've never REFUSED work.

Anything is better than what you have now.

that is what I am going for. I know for almost half price of all the other shops, I am not expecting a miracle. I just need it good enough to sell
