Got a nice deal today

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

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.

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.
