ya like our 12 dollar paintjob isnt anything close to professional its just something he wanted done so i went over helped him he bought the paint we taped it up and did it really fast. the car is still all dented up and all its just that its flat black now.. it does look much nicer now tho. and ya nice. thats what i plan on doin later this year. im moving to cali to go to UTI for auto body repair and paint and hopefully they will let me work on my own car and then ill fix it all and then ill paint it how i want and be happy with it.
