    BOY!!!! You and me are learning that lesson the hard way! From what I see the graphics look pretty cool. What is your issue with the paint job? Is it something we can't see in the photos? Or are the graphics not what you asked for?

    Well lets just say it's a good thing you can't see both sides of the car at the same time.

    I guess it's true you get what you pay for, but for $2,300 I was hoping for a little bit better but it was hard to get the guy to understand what I wanted because he didn't speak english very good.

    Well I would if I could find the guy but he's already pulled up stakes and moved on. But the way the whole thing went down in the first place I should have known it was to good to be true.

    Now I understand! See with mine (looks great in photos and from 20 ft away). Now to add insult to injury I can't get the car back from being touched up (over a month now) Sigh! Again I think we both learned the hard way.

    Except for gas welding, you don't really see what you are welding, only where you are welding. It is more practice and muscle memory than vision.
