The awful moment when....

You find out what the car looked before the ****ty paintjob by the previous owner...

Before... Beautiful...



After... An abomination to preludes...
Full of dents, just not shown in the picture, paint is extremely ****ty. Its chipping and its just awful.




I bought it off the guy for 2800 but what the hell.

Re: The awful moment when....

Is it a possibility that it isn't the same car? Just the same rims... I don't see how they could screw it up that bad.

If it's in good shape for $2800, repaint it!

Pretty much got flamed for driving like a jackass and was told to slow down. And I'll be damned, slowing down fixed it.

Re: The awful moment when....

I'm not going to bother with the car anymore, its a lost cause for me and I can't afford to fix it. I just discovered the trunk flooded with water. I didn't know this would happen due to the fact that it never rains in vegas until today....
