How to tell if paint is good?

I just recently ordered my new front kaminara bumper and I wanted to get my entire car painted. What should I look for and ask to make sure that the paint is good?

i would go to a paint shop that you know has gotten good reviews and comments and maybe ask if they have sample pics of their work; plus you live in vegas, so the paint jobs there are prolly bad ass; i wouldn't worry. grin grin

Yeah the only thing is that there is so many shops to choose from. Today im going to like 4 or 5 different ones and wanted to know what questions to ask. Like someone at work told me to make sure they put on the siminize* sp? sealer at the end? Im not even sure what that is lol

Find out what brand of paint they use. The three best are PPG, DuPont, and Sherwin-Williams. Don't take it to a shop that uses anything other than one of those three.

Usually(but not all the time) when they cost 2000-3000, they will do great job. in which they take every thing apart and paint them seperatly...
They will do stock quality or better...
