    It looks great in pics, personally I think it's a little crazy to not at least pull simple stuff like heads/tails/handles/plate bezel etc , some of that stuff would be quicker to pull then to mask 100%. Regardless if you're happy with the job that's what counts. Do you mind me asking what you paid?

    I can't help but comment because I paint and prep for living since I was 16 and when I see half ass work like this it makes me angry.

    It's the amount of dry spray and peeling in jamb areas and around edges that makes me cringe. Even at whatever price you paid for that respray, I think it takes minimal time, effort and cost to remove handles, window trim and lights etc.. But like you said, to each their own.

    From the final photo it does look good. I just hope it lasts and you didn't waste whatever dollar amount you set out to spend on it. Good luck to you sir!

    Makes sense, to me it's a foreign concept - I've never been a painter nor really know how to paint. It ended up costing me $1500 and honestly does look very good, I think the test now will just time.
