hi guys.
i am planning to get bodykits and get it painted somewhere.
Just for the hell of it, i called up local MAACO and asked for quote.
for DSM, they say its going to be about 450 ish.

The guy i talked to was pretty cool dude. He was talking about MAACO having bad reputation is not true, blah blah.. you know.

So are they really that bad? how much did you guys pay to get your bodykit painted?

Thx. :wavey:

I don't have a body kit, but yes, the reputation they have is true - they are crap. I'd stay away. Only use Maaco if you want to repaint a crappy car so you can sell it quickly.
:iamwiths:

Never ever ever ever get anything painted at Maaco, unless it's a lease and you're returning it....or the comment I quoted.

Maaco :shooting:

my god.
what a hate. lol.
thank you for your advice guys. i will stay away from them.

So how much does it usually cost to get a decent paint job? 4 piece bodykit.
Only one place i know in my area is "Hi-tech" and i heared they are pretty expensive.

i am in Orange county, SoCal.
anyone know a good place down here?

No doubt. Noslen has it right. Paint is one area you don't wanna short change. Quality is everything, and quality costs money. 450 for a paint job strikes me as insane. If my memory suits me correct I think it takes approximately 4 or 5 quarts to shoot our whole cars (my car is the the works of a complete makeover and should be done next week). 4 to 5 quarts of good paint is expensive in itself, not to mention the labor involved with wet sanding the car. DONT DO IT. It's like ritual suicide with a spoon man. You will hate yourself after seeing it. ::steps down off soapbox:: :p
