You make valid points. Just make sure you get a good body shop. Bet Guard is tough to match.Yeah --- I've seen those as well. Two concerns for me would likely keep me from going that route though:
1. Guard Metallic is a pretty rare color -- yet to see a pre painted one on eBay that color.
2. Between the miles on the car before it was taken off -- the removal process, storing it, packaging it for shipment, shipping it, unwrapping it.........way too many opportunities for some kind of imperfection to be on it that would require to me to repaint it anyway.
If one were close to me, and I could inspect it before purchase, I still might consider going that route.
