It's called depreciation... No matter how nice a car is it depreciates right off the lot, so it will never be worth MSRP as a used car unless it's ultra rare and it's 30+ years old. Also custom paint and non-factory extras nearly never factor in with an informed buyer. What you do to a car to personalize it is your prerogative and in 99.98% of used car sales it will not affect the value of the vehicle no matter how much $$$ is in it. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but mods are always the where the previous owner loses money, big time.
Even though I agree, I don't think this appropriate. I believe once you drive a vehicle off the lot, it depreciates 20% which would make it in my mind worth 36k at the very most. But that is what I value it at.
I love the paint combo, but you might have been duped if you paid 9k.
KBB says 35K:

IF you can supply the VIN, price would be more accurate.
With the paint you might get a few more thousand.
Is it a LS3 or L99?
