Well, brought my car into a body shop to have my Roush Midwing painted and installed, the guy charged $150 for painting, and $25 for installation, so total of $175. While I was there I pointed out a couple of scratches and asked if he could fix them, he said sure, it's an easy thing. Also, I asked about debadging the car and removing the dealer sticker, again, he said yeah, it's an easy thing to do.
So, I'm going to have the two scratches on my car fixed, and the back debadged for free[clap]

sweet. debadging is free anyways. Just takes like half an hour.

Awesome! Always nice when guys throw in stuff like that and don't charge an arm and leg. There's just way too many people out there that will nickel and dime you to death.

See I told you just to ask about having them mount it!

Oh I know, I was very surprised when it was only $25, and the guy seemed to know what he was doing too. I was a little nervous about having him do it, but he's got a pretty big shop, and seemed to know all the steps and how to do it, so I'm very happy that I did ask about it.
Can't wait until Saturday when I'm going to go pick it up.

I think it's great that he's helping you out not only with a reasonable price on the work you brought to him, but also doing the scratch touch up and debadging while he's got your car there. Hope it turns out well for you!

Yeah, he's a really nice guy, he used to fix my dad's old car a lot with scratches and whatnot, and my dad always liked him because he was so nice, and he would do the little things without nickel and diming you like Hotniks said.

Awesome! Glad to hear there's still decent people out there willing to help someone out.

Give this man all the word of mouth advertising you can spread around town!

Thats actually pretty good man. Good for you.

Make sure to slip the guy doing the work a 20. This way you can come back for something later if needed and he won't think your an ass who just wants to use him.

^^^ Yeah, that's what I was thinking of doing, I was thinking I'd give him an even $200 for the whole thing ($25 extra.)
@Chrissy: I definitely will be recommending him, I just need the name of his shop lol. As I said my family was using him before he had his own big shop, so we called him personally when we needed the spoiler painted and installed, not his shop. So I'm not sure on the name of the place.
