well, its continually got worse, even though you cant tell in my sig. im at the point where i dont even wanna wash it anymore, let alone wax, cuz i know it will look like crap. i also had some kid riding on my hood and he slid off, leaving some nice light scratches on the driver side of the hood and fender.....sigh...stupid kids...

anyways the good news...

my dad said he is refinancing the house, and he will have some extra money. he said i am going to get a paint job i was quoted $1500 by a local shop, and that includes all the prep work. im thinking if i do all the basic prep work and disassembly, i should be able to get it a lot cheaper. hey all you minnesotas, got any recommended shops? sorry no maaco.

they painted my g/f'* Sunfire... she had the same problems you have...

Really...that'* the best paint job I've ever seen come out of a Macco shop. Most have mass orange peel and even runs.

Glad that worked out, most don't

check out www.mncgp.com Andrew. GP_PIMP has had his car repainted this amazing metallic red that kinda glows orange. Prep work is the reason my maaco paint jobs don't last usually.

that looks horrible dude.. your sig makes your car so pretty. My car looks like ****.. from pretty much all angles. If my clear coat wasn't comming off, then the car would look half decent.
