maybe the shop is really backed up. i took mine in for some body work and they had like 5 other cars in there, plus 3 hot rods.

i would have to say around a week, even if the shop is slightly busy...the only reason it should take longer is if that shop is taking on business from dealerships and what not and has a ton of work

and racerhex, i know you've done some custom stuff on your car...but there is no body shop that can sand down your car, primer it, paint it, and have it ready in one day...that leaves no time for the paint to dry...and the last time i checked, you don't wet sand and buff paint that hasn't settled...and trust me, you WILL want a wet sand and buff...makes a HUGE difference
