It really is nice to have a nice looking paint job... it does make a huge difference on an old car to have people admiring it...and think of how much more proud you would be if you had put in the elbow grease to do it yourself... it is a huge job to prep and paint a car.... most people I suspect will only do it once ....

A pro can do it in a week because they have a temperature/humidity controlled spray area and banks of infrared lights to dry each stage fast...

And I do agree that most people will take months doing it themselves if they do it right...

My point is that it is more, and much more in some places to have a pro paint it.. and the quality Does not have to be less just because it is done at home and slowly...

" A Few Bucks Less "... perhaps the paint shops in Australia are more reasonable with their labor charges than some places here in the USA....
