Oh my god, I can't believe I'm ging to say this...... I agree with smakes.
I've seen them so bad to the point that none of the inner body panels match the new paint. If you don't FULLY prep the vehicle yourself before hand (sand, fill, prime) they will charge you out the azz to do it.
Please look further.

My understanding like Joldtown said you have to prep it all.

You have to mask it off and what isn't masked off they paint.

The paint they use is really bad quality so lasting a year you would be lucky.

you get what you pay for. if you are expecting a $200 paint job, then that's what you will get. but for comparison, a "factory" quality paint job would be in the neighborhood of $3-5000. i have about $500 in the paint for my truck, that that's not even counting any labor. just materials. they spray the color on, and then one coat of clear. if you pay for the extra clear, you may get another coat. still not enough to buff out any imperfections.

so if you decide to go there, don't plan for perfection.
