Default A complete strip and repaint - is it worth it?

Hi all

I wondered if anyone has any experience with the a complete strip and repaint (exterior) of an RV8?

Assuming the work is done by a specialised aircraft paint shop, would you expect the quality to be the same or pretty close to a paint job on a new built let's say done by that some paint shop?

Any 'lessons learned' that are worth sharing?

I have some experience with wrapping in vinyl, and it's a bad experience so not keen to go that route.

I donít know about other shops, but anything less than perfect is not acceptable out of our shop, first time paint or strip and paint, quality of paint is the same. Have a look at our links below for some of our work.
