burnt paint can it be saved?

I just had a custom paint job done on my 06 GT and needless to say the paint quality didn't quite come out like I wanted... it's a black over red 2-tone and the black is not glossy at all. The guy said his favorite part is doing the final detail work. I also just learned how to spot burnt paint (the holo-graphic look) and it's all over. They're suppost to be trying to fix it but I have some doubts. So my question is can it be fixed without repainting/clearing it again? thanks for any feedback.

Make sure it's exactly how you want it or don't take it.

IT ALL DEPENEDS ON HOW MUCH PAINT IS ON THE CAR AND HOW DEEP IT IS BURNT. If it is not to deep you can repolish it and make it right. I have saved a few, but there is no way to tell you just have to try and see what comes out.

3 coats is about normal. Most clears call for 2 to 3 coats. From the pic it's hard to tell. As long as there is enough clear left it should buff out. Like I said before you will not know until you do it.

So do you do that type of paint work? I have a custom paint job and a rock chip in the hood that needs to be fixed, where ya located?

They've done studies you know.... 60% of the time, it works every time

Most custom shop do something sim. Sometimes more than 3 + 3, seen and done jobs that called for three layer of 3-4 coats each. All comes down to the graphics being layed out.

What I stated was most clear coats recommend 2 -3 coats. As for the custom world all bets are off and some crazy sh!t happens to some of those cars. A simple two- tone job usually doesn't need multi layers though.
