no but when the guy painted it he did a shitty job. only 2 thin coats of clear didnt buff it out didnt put the trim in. my rear bumper cracked and tried fixing it with jb weld and then repainted it with out scuffing it. redid the roof and in two spots he mixed up the filler hot and it clumped and lef 2 lines in the roof and then put a skim coat over it.2 hrs later after sanding he painted it. then put it out side in direct sunlight. repainted the jams cause he didnt prep them right. he alse sprayed water on the car before painting and instead if waiting for it to dry he cleared it and it got all spotty......

some of this you would probably not even see. but i did paint for a living at one time and know what to look for........ he was also suppose to do a good job and this is what i got..
