My car is getting painted

Well my car is in the shop getting a brand new paint job and body kit. The owner of the shop said it's gonna take about a month ( i know the longer they take the better it's gonna turn out . It's already the third day and I can't take it. Has anyone been through this. I mean my car is going in with factory paint(car is a 93) so there is plenty of dents and scraches and it bone stock. It's gonna come out looking nothing like stock with a fresh paint job(metalic dark grey).

Who has gone though this terrible waiting time knowing there car is gonna come out amazing?

I had my car in the shop the whole summer and it is ruf. My car was a 93 with all the dents and scratches too and the second I got it back those 3 months of waiting had been forgotten. Which body shop is it in?

why does it take so long? i installed body kits before and got the car painted in less than 2 weeks.
are they just overwhelmed with clients?

kd

it's at Unique Auto Body in Mississauga. They do really good work. I've seen some mint paint jobs come out of that place. The owner Dan is an older guy and laid back so they take their time,
