There comes a time in every cars life where it decides to shed it’s skin and become a beautiful butterfly. And by that I mean have all the paint peel off. My S40 has reached this metamorphoses, and I desperately want to make it look halfway decent once again.

However, my budget it small, and so too are my options. It seems the best option at this point is to bite the bullet and paint it myself on the cheap. Do it right, of course, using a compressor and paint gun, temporary booth, and whatnot. And the other option is Maaco. Anyone have any experience with either here, and willing to advice me on what to do?

Nice looking S40 for your time.
