Default Paint job? What would you do?

If you never checked the thread, my car got pretty beat up.

Total for damages came to around $4,000. However, they are going to repaint both passenger side doors, the bumper, the trunk, and the quarter panel in order to keep the side matching. My question to you is in the poll.

Keep in mind if we repaint the whole car, we pay for the rest of the paint job.

it depends acutally, your car is pretty recent..... I don't think it would be a bad idea to just re-paint the bad spots, now..... If you had a 95 below I'd say get the whole thing repainted to match perfectly.

If I was the painter on the car i would say paint the whole car so i can make more $$$

But you but NO MEANS need the whole car painted it will match they're painting the front door to Bleand the color fo it will match, unless the painter is totaly inept you will never notice the differance.

the ONLY thing i would suggest if you were willing to pay a little extra is to have the roof and other quarter painted, Because there are no edges to stop the paint at and a clear blend is HARD to make invisible on a black car and the UV will make the clear blend fade over time making it look shitty, clear all the way across for the little extra peice of mind
