The clearcoat layer on the roof, hood, and trunk of my car has gone cloudy and it needs a respray. To determine where I want to get this done, I used BASF's body shop locator (http://refinish.basf.us/where-to-buy/) and found a body shop roughly 20 miles from where I live. I stopped by this shop several months ago and they quoted me a reasonable price. They also use urethane based glasurit paint for their jobs.
My concern is whether I should be worried dropping my old w124 into a body shop that does not specialize in mercedes repairs(such as body shops that work directly with mercedes dealers/services). Our 124s have these additional chrome trims and plastic panels/claddings that are not often found in most modern cars and I'm worried about the potential damage during the disassembly/reassembly phase of the job, rather than the actual painting itself. There's also the sunroof assembly, which is also a huge job to dis/reassemble on its own. Am I just being paranoid? I've never had to use a body shop before so I really don't know what to expect.
Any opinions/feedbacks/personal experiences would be appreciated!
PS. Are the trunk '500E' badges re-usable?
