    Why spend 250 when he's gonna repaint the whole car regardless. That 250 is just gonna get reprinted over in a sense when he repaints the car. I say leave it muti colored lol. And talk to Mario because he knows that dude Jacob and he was gonna do my whole car for 700 and that was in a professional booth.

    Well the rattle can paint is actually dupont oem paint, and Lionel is right this is just temporary cause I still gotta get side skirts and I'm doing the boser hood extension so once I do all that then I will repaint the whole car cause it's fading in spots plus with new skirts and hood it's going to need it
