Getting her re-repainted

The 300D is getting re-repainted Colorado Beige next Wed. The body shop agreed that the orange peel/some runs were unacceptable, and agreed to resand the whole car and do a thorough repaint (or face the wrath of a re-re-repaint) So now there must be at least 3 or 4 layers of paint on there. With the thorough Por-15 job I just did, rust should be at bay.

After this really saltly/slushy winter, no rust has cropped up. Hope this second repaint will continue to keep my rust repairs...repaired.

I'll post pics when its done.

Will you wet sand and partially prep the car yourself? Repainting their own work to cover sags and orange peel, those guys might get lazy on sanding and prep work.
