[DML] Re: factory painted car,

aftermarket by the dealer. I bought mine under that pretence.

I personally have a red Delorean. The red is of a lighter red than 
the one pictured in the ebay add. 

If the person who purchases it wishes to strip it he/she can. The 
paint stripping can be done professionally by people who strip paint 
off cars for a living. I was quoted $400-$600 to do it.  They use a 
walnut shell (not sand) spray at 25psi. The wait is about 2 weeks 
for this to be done. After that, the user would have to regrain the 
stainless, as well as repaint the facias (or get them painted). This 
particular red car, has an advantage for stipping, the insides of 
the doors are not painted. I've heard stories about others who have 
stripped their paint off, having a hardtime getting it off the 
insides of the doors.

Personally, If I were to do anything to my car, I would go to 
blackcherry or a high gloss black.

Either way, this particular seller has a feedback rating of 2
