Not really sure what a quick paint job is on a keeper car. Paint is the last step if restoring car in my opinion. Do it once and do it well.

Paint is the last of my worries too but in Qatar we have to go through a yearly inspection for road permit .... now this includes putting up a 40 year old car up against a 2019 range rover.....

hence the quick paint refresh

I've seen in some communities they have a standards code and if you don't meet that you can be forced to clean up or move out, but I've never seen it applied to cars. Tell them Patina is cool https://forums.vintage-mustang.com/v...-mustangs.html
