    i heard horror stories about maaco paint quality this is how my car turned out its the middle paint uruthane . origninal color electric current red . no clear coat . had multipe dents scratches multi colored ect before id say they did a great job overall took about a week and a half . i think the price was great at 750 , with a 4 year warranty . mind the acura rims they are just temp and free lol and a small shot of my gfs zx2 .

    it looks pretty good. i noticed the side marker light out in one pic, how much prep did you do to it before taking it in?

    Thanks. I heard of them doing that . Hopefully they corrected it. As for prep work I removed the corner lights window trim and grille and some interior parts just in case of overspray like the door panels . they removed the front tag bracket , roof rails , side skirts and put it all back. I'll post before and one during pic once I get back to my pc

    just surfing other forums here, didnt realize there was a maaco one. i just had my 88 painted at maaco with mini cooper lightening blue metalic in single stage. they painted it the original color, and then had to shoot it again, which was good because I got some extra body work out of it.

    anyway, here are the pics - for the money, its fine for me. and it helped to pull everything off the car - but they did paint over some things, like my door lock pulls. and my exhaust pipe. pretty funny.

    We took our work van in and had it painted. They painted one door handle on one side, but not the door handle on the other side!

    we didn't notice it for a while, long enough we couldn't go back and mention it to them.
