Maaco??? your kidding me right? thats the last place youd want to go to........... I worked at Miracales and this place was a step higher than Maaco ....... this place cuts corners and their painting sucks....... sorry for the outburst but you dont need to go waisting your money there itll only peel in a matter of months after the warrantie is done for ( maybe before)

Color change is going to be expensive since they will have to paint under the hood, door jambs, trunk area, also.

If you were to paint the car the same color, it will a piece of cake for them. I ask for my 94 Integra (4-door) and a few shop quoted me around $1200 to get my whole car repainted (exterior) and all the dings and dent filled. This is with PPG paint also (quality paint). Of course though, I was painting it the same color.

i would only go to shops that are recommended by other ppl with good reputation. ..

Will the shop remove bumpers, tail lights when painting....The most important part of a paint job is the prep!

caliber collision center in san diego or la/orange county area. or fountain valley bodyworks for those in the orange county area did a really nice job on a friends rx-7, they took apart the whole car and painted the pieces individually and put them back on the car.

i heard you can get one at maaco for 800


Hey guys I did some research and I found out why Macco,and those other places do your panit for so cheap.....They don't even sand your car down there spray right over the original paint,or as far as sanding goes they might take a SCOTCH BRIGHT pad and knock the dirt off and then spray it........Please don't do it just save 2000 and get it don't the right way.

quality paint job that looks really nice(probably nicer) like OEM will cost you 2g to 5g depends on which color.

you get what you paid for. you can just go get some dupli-color paints and paint it your self. but remember car is not a drawing sheet. you better be damn good at it. :D
