There's a few people that have gotten a paint job from them on this forum and from what I've read on their feedback it's a hit or miss situation

Well most of the feedback is that after a while it starts to chip or fade. It's more like a short term paint job

Well they have different price ranges right. So I'm guessing then most expensive is the best one

They have different qualities for different prices, obviously the best and longest lasting is most expensive unfortunately.

They probably just spray right over, probably no sanding or anything.

Get the body prepared to your liking, strp off as much of the trim as possible and buy an acceptable quality paint. Go make a deal with them or even another shop to just apply the paint. The prep is the key thing as with any paint job.
