The first side came out absolutely perfect, no sign they were there from the factory.
Both doors were repainted. That stinks. I would go back and complain if they never informed you that the doors had been repainted. You can clearly tell that the door is a different color from the quarter panel. [/b]
but the other side is PERFECT... :sigh:I was also going to say that the paint either faded or you pulled the clear off with the adhesive on the door gaurds, maybe try looking on the back of the removed door gaurds for clearcoat chips or residue. But I have deffinately seen faded paint alot worse than that.
It could have been sitting somewhere parked near a house, in a carport, or something so that the paint only faded on one side. It really looks more to me like paint fading very much than it being repainted, though both are possibilities I suppose... and both require bodyshop work. Sorry for your misfortune.The lighting is really really really bad in the pics, so everything is matched, except for under the guards, and it sounds exactly like sunny describes it. My dad bought the car with 9k on it(I was just given it recently) and the original owner probably had it keyed, scratched, etc. The lazyass bodyshop never did it right, and now i get to pay. grr. Any approximate estimates for 2 doors? I was guessing about 200 a door from a reputable shop. My first "mod" goes bad, I hope it gets better than this down the road :swearin:
but the other side is PERFECT... :sigh:
