    The first 3 pics are of a car here at work. Just added 3 new pictures the owner sent me showing that he'd repainted the car. Apparently, the original pictures were where he had been scraping the old paint off and preparing for a repaint, but it had rained before he was able to finish and it rusted

    hah, yeah right.
    they drive home with a newly pimped-out car. but once they leave that car parked outside at night is what makes them unlucky.

    i /rarely/ ever hear of those gimps at wcc talking about what kind of security system they throw in the cars.

    I saw one on Ebay several months back. Went for a lot more than anyone here would have guessed!

    And exactly how did that person "paint" the car? I'm guessing with really crappy paint and no preparation? I've used some really crappy paint before ($1 spray cans from Wal-Mart) that held up much better than that paint job (and still looks OK) but I did some prep work.

    you know for as much crap as wcc gets about the rice crap they do... i think that they are smart enough to not show everything off... ok now we are installing the viper model 6300 alarm... mounting it directly under the steeringwheel with the power lead off the starter we will then install the backup alarm mounted on the passanger fender under the air box. i mean not to mention they really dont normally do that stupid crap they put huge wheels and VERY expensive paint jobs on very nice cars. Im trying to figure out how they thought this would help buisness. all the people with money are like dude they do ghay crap and all the people without money go and price work and are like no way in hell when they see the price tag.

    sometimes at the end of the show, they'll mention a ballpark figure on how much was spent. usually ranging from mid $10,000's to lower $30,000's.
