Don't feel bad albeiro, It's your money you will be parting with.

One of the purpose of all questions is to ensure the service provider knows he is dealing with an informed client. I can assure you that even though he says he does all this to all customers, most likely he will make sure that all work is detailed to his assurances.
As a service provider, one of my pet peeves is an ignorant customer that may not know good work from crap. Comments and accolades from an informed customer mean a lot!!

I am ordering a 06 Vista Bue GT this week and going to white have stripes painted on as soon as it arrives. I live in the Bay Area and may ake it to your guy up in Roseville if all works out with you. I like the quality this guy seems to present and his work looks honorable. Can't wait to see some pics....

Mirror Covers Instead Of Painting Factory

Albireo, Did you look into those Zennon mirror covers? It may be cheaper to have the painter paint them and put them on rather than have to remove the stock ones and paint them. They also may hold the paint better since they are intended to be painted. You also can go back to the original black mirrors by pulling them off if you ever needed to.

Just a thought. That is what I intend to do when I have my stripes painted on. Here is the link to buy them at Mustangs Unlimited. I belive Cal-Mustang has them even a bit cheaper: http://www.mustangsunlimited.com/ite...asp?T1=CA46+01

Zenon mirror covers

Saw your post on the miror covers.Only thing i didnt like was that they are alot larger than the stock ones once theyre slipped over the stock mirror.They look good though and add a nice "flair" to the basic mirror.They did fit nicely (will have pics of the total job tomorrow (scoop,mirror covers and stripes).I got mine from Ebay at $134.99 and $9.99 s&h. Seen them all over the price spectrum though from $135 to $179 plus shipping so shop around,Ebay is lowest --Autoaccesoryforyou (I think).

Stripes & Mirror Covers

Can't wait to see your photos of both of your cars with stripes and the mirror painted. I just got back from the Ford dealership on my custom 06 Vista Blue GT order. I ordered it without the spoiler so I can install the after market CDC ducktail then stripe the car in white. Looking forward to seeing your pics.

albireo,
Dude I would sleep like a baby if I knew that guy was painting my car. I went to his site and his $hit looks B-E-A-utiful.
I would not worry. As long as (and it seems he does) he has the same picture of the outcome as you do.
