    My sister, of all people, had her car painted by them. Did the same color as original. It was actually good work. She did the $149.00 package deal.

    They didn't do a lot of sanding or prep work. The cars back then would have little chrome name plates like "Impala" etc and they would just paint right over them if you didn't take them off. But the cars looked good right after they got done, so if you were selling the car you were good. Otherwise they did get a lot of cars with fading paint as time went by..

    $99.95 in 1986 works out to about $240 in 2021. Where's the profit in that?

    $240 won’t buy a gallon of paint.
