Around here MAACO is the cheapy alternative @ about $500. You definitely get what you pay for. Back in the early 70s Earl Schieb was $39.95 and actually did a decent job.

Someone did a hit 'n run, while my Honda was parked, sideswiping the door and slightly into the quarter panel. MAACO did a perfect color match and "blend" into the quarter. How the heck do they blend? $600 for the job done about 2 years ago. I plan to go back to them with truck fenders, grill, bed panels to see if they can guarantee perfect matches before I have the rest of the truck towed over to finish the cab.

I'm not sure you could get it sanded for $500.00 around here. We have a "Facto Back" here (like Earl Schieb) and if you don't mask it off it gets painted and it's about a $1000.00.

Haha! Back in the '60's a friend of my dad's got his pickup painted by Earl Shieb, and he wound up with tires that matched blue they shot on the truck. grin

Update.
We dropped the Honda CRV off at the paint shop today. I took a few minutes to inspect some of the vehicles they have recently painted. I think the results are pretty good considering the low price. I did find a few areas where masking was not done properly, but overall I thought the quality of the work was satisfactory for the price. Please see the pictures below. I will update this thread again when I pick up my Honda CRV on Saturday. I hope my CRV looks as good as the silver SUV in the picture. Stay tuned!

I had a friend in High School that had a MAACO paint job on his Nova, he did a Beau and Luke slide across the hood and took all the paint with him. grin I suppose if you did the masking yourself it would be better, at least the finished product would be to your satisfaction. Just wondering though, what quality of paint are you getting for $500.00 including labor?

With the amount of paint they go thru, they most likely get a really good price. I wonder if you have a limited choice of colors?

Since I removed the roof rack and the spare tire from the rear door hatch, and since I sanded off the really bad areas of clearcoat on the hood and driver side they gave me a discount. The price is now $430. I told them to put on extra clearcoat. The new price is still under $480.

A survey would show that we all have different standards as far as paint and bodywork goes.

My wife did not like looking at the peeling clearcoat. My wife and I walked around the lot and looked at the cars that were already painted and she thought they looked good. The goal here is to satisfy my wife with a decent looking and good running car that isn’t an eyesore to her. I will probably get my moneys worth and nothing more. If she is happy, then I will be very very happy.
