Ghetto No More!

We took our car in this weekend to get an estimate on a paint job. They advertised paint jobs starting at $259, so we figured that for about $500, we should be able to get one that would last a few years. Yeah, right!

The first thing the guy said when he saw our car was, "Oh my Lord!!"
You know this can't be a good thing!
He told us that it looked like whoever owned the car before us had it painted, and they did a really bad job! Not only was the paint cracking and peeling, but it was bubbling too. He then told us that they wouldn't be able to do it for under $1000. I knew our car looked bad, but I had no idea how bad it was.

We took the car in this morning to get it's extreme makeover. They said it would take a week to do it. I'll post before and after pictures when we get it back!
