I have never known anyone that had a good experience with a Maaco paint job. This is a first.

I spy something red with my eye... Is that a 60 something firebird/camaro convertable in your garage? Can't see the details of the back to well to be sure, but anyways that paint looks real nice on your Jeep, if only Lewiston was closer to northern Utah, but oh well probably do a rustoleum special on mine for now until I get my own equipment to do auto paint.

i got my truck painted at Maaco two years ago. hasn't been too bad for going with the $400 "just make it all one color" option.

there are things bodywork-wise i would have done differently but the goal then was to get it on the road and not have it look like a hoopty.

that's a very nice looking truck........BUT.....I will stick to rattlecan as Mesquite trees and cactus and rocks are not very friendly to REAL off road trucks paint.

I don't want to rain on anybodies parade, but most paint jobs look good at first, especially in a picture.
How much service you get out of a paint job depends on the prep work and the materials used, how presentable it looks at a distance depends on the painter. Painters at a MAACO may paint 5 or more cars a day, unless they're total clutzes they get to be pretty fair painters quick, or they're on the street. The problem is when they really get good, they usually move on to a better paying job somewhere else, so most MAACOs are always breaking in new painters.

What quality work MAACO, or any quick paint shop puts out depends on the people and the management. They're usually in a big rush, up against deadlines on everything. Some can do much better jobs than they're allowed to do, so how good a job you get from them depends on the people and how busy the shop is at the time.

I've put Maaco jobs on two vehicles. We have one good one here in town and one sorry one. The good one did such a good job that I won second place in a car show with it. It is a shame that people generally write Maaco off as just an Earl Sheib clone. Maaco, around here anyway, can actually do good bodywork and everything.

Looks stunning Im doing mine the same color. I heard maaco does a great job as long as you prep it right and there is no body work to be done.

Just out of curiosity where did you get the rear bumper or was it already on there when you got it because I need new bumpers and I really like that rear bumper on there.
