Andy what did you get painted there? I've seen a bunch of cars done by them and they did my GT wing and matched it perfectly.

My rear bumper, 2 door skins, front fender. Its not the painting part I dont like, but the alignment of the doors and bumper was out noticably, on my car and my brothers. When they took off some the rubber on the outside they chipped the paint near the area, down to primer. But when I gave them the car it looked like about 30% of the body was damaged, when i got it back 98/100%, so My overall rating is that they are good, but not great. I also understand that Chris has a shop to Run and its a busy one at that. So he has to get the cars in and out as fast as possible, and also doing the best jobs that they can. But I wasn't 100% satisfied, just my opinion.

Also I think Chris and his crew at Proline are stand up guys, good vibe in the shop, good customer relations and good work, paint was well matched and good quality. I didn't notice the difference right away as I was happy to see my ride back in shape. But its only off by an 1/8 so Its not totally noticable. Im not upset at their work, they did a good job. Maybe my vision or my cars BENT?
