Icon14 car goes for paint! questions!

hey guys ive had my lude for about couple months now when i bought it only had 100k on the motor itself n the car ran flawless everything was serviced from honda since 98 the owner of the car finally sold it to me so i got hooked up :) 4000g's for its reciepts and everything from when he had it :) only problem was the paint it was oxidized like crazy lol it was red but looks lil pink now in the sun n since i live in az the heat is harsh. i just had couple questions before i take my car into paint. the guy i know threw my dealership paints our cars in and out sometimes and even fixes some of our trucks that been wrecked that we sell like for 6gs. like our F250 diesel (03) truck looks flawless changed fenders hood and everything in front doesnt even look like it was hit at all and paint and everything looks real clean so i got some confidence in this dude. just wanted to ask u guys maybe some questions i should ask him about before i do my car. so far hes showed me some cars hes painted and they look real good even some wreaked ones like this scion he had that was nailed in the front. looks New! so i know he does some good work. as far as prep. he told me hes gonna strip basically everything on the outside lights. wing. grill- fogs. and told me since ima want it factory look its kinda like a special paint for the lude hes gonna go by the code and told me hes gonna sand it down base coat sand again another coat. sand again. another coat. sand clear.. wet sand. clear again.. ........... u get the idea. hes only charging me 1200.00 sounds good for the price but then again like ppl say "u get what u paid for" so idk what else should i ask him to do or w/e get some pointers. get some confidence in this guy and all. owns his own shop gots everything paint house and all. n from so far his jobs look real nice. :) so i need some help lol what else should i ask him or tell him to do also? first time painting any of my cars so ima newbie to it what u guys think?

ill see if i post some old pics and new ones if i get it done :)

Looks like that guy is pretty good from what you're telling us.

$1200 is a good price for prep work and respray...ask him if he bakes the car too...he should, he has his own paint shop.

I just can't believe you payed $4,000,000 for a prelude, especially considering the paint was messed up. One mans trash is another mans treasure I suppose.

um considering the value of preludes these days i think 4k is a very good offer, i got my prelude for 6k. if he got his car in good condition it was well worth the price, he should have no problems. so with the paint job and everything he payed 5200, which is still a bargain. so idk what you think ludes go for..but there not cheap unless there junked from people who give up on there cars

looks very nice, are you happy? One of the reasons you cant wash or wax(and no their not going over board with no waxing for a month) is because the paint is still pourous(sp?) and will soak up the soap and or wax like a sponge, it needs time to cure. Time. And it doesn't need any type of wax coating on it, as this will hinder the process.
