    Hi Bill,
    Quick question about painting in general.
    My truck is 12 years old and the Toyota silver is faded. Color matched paint from cans no longer looks like the same shade.
    How difficult is it for shops to mix a paint that looks similar to the existing paint? Is it something all body shops have the ability to do?

    You can't really match faded paint. The best thing to do is match as close as possible and buff the faded area to make it match better

    What if you just wrapped your truck? Similar cost to a good paint job

    Thanks Nick! Lets take yours! We need to chat bits & bytes.

    Was going to mention the same. https://illusionswraps.com/why-wrap/ is family members shop and high recommended. Look at reviews.

    If you are local; lets do a detailing day... I need to clean out my pinstripes from the branches that Nick isn't afraid of!

    I think that's a great idea. I'm about 15 mins from downtown.

    I'm 59 and have lived in Front Royal since 1985, so maybe that qualifies me as an "old timer":rolleyes:. My wife has lived in Front Royal almost all of her life.

    Can you give more name info and where off of 522?

    Bill, My father n law was Dutch Zinnecker. Over the hill past the zoological, past Rappahannock winery, off little long mountain! The one store I'll go visit downtown is that little place called "stokes" I think. still has that family store feel and I like their stuff!
    You might have met his wife Mary at griffin tavern.

    Probably have met Mary at Griffin tavern. We go there every once in a while. Stokes is a great store too. Never knew anyone from 522 past the winery though.

    Stokes is a unique experience. They are prob hurting from Rural King and could use all the business that they can get.

    Went for a ride in the mountains today from Woodstock up rt. 758 to Woodstock tower, then down Mine Mountain road into Fort Valley. Met a nice guy from Alexandria in a built Jeep up there. He had the FSR rtt that I've been considering getting for a while now. He was just out driving around too.
