Default New paint on the '98 S70 T5, what beauty.

We are the original owners of this 215K mile car, the paint has been fading for a while now so the wife took it to few shops and finally found a place that would do not insurance work.

The wheels are repainted as well, I was hoping they'd be powder coated, we'll see how they hold up.

All in all I think they did a good job, need to take it back for a small spots that will need buffing and the power antenna doesn't work now.

You're saying that you got insurance to cover it?

Nope, had to pay out of pocket, $2,400. I'm hoping we get a better price on my 2 other cars i want to get painted by going back there.

Most of the shops my wife went to only wanted insurance jobs.

Looks nice. How long did they have the car? Original color I assume?

Looks really good, nice to see someone giving a P80 some cosmetic attention.

What shop? I have 4 body shops in my complex and none of them want to do anything but insurance work (not that I blame them).
