I've been restoring a '57 Chevy and took it to a shop for body work and paint to be completed for around $25,000. I had issues with the paint peeling almost immediately and tried to resolve it with the shop directly but felt like I kept getting the run around. I was just in an auto accident with the vehicle and took it elsewhere for repairs but I've been informed that the vehicle was not prepped or painted right so now the paint is chipping off where they needed to blend the paint. Other areas are starting to peel already that were unrelated to the accident and now including the minor body work I'm looking at as a result of the accident I'm looking at upwards of $11,000 to have the vehicle repainted. I'm concerned because the paint job is only about two years old.
