1-Day = Maaco type shop. There's one in Antioch if that's what you're after, Jake.

Define crappy. Ours is on a 20+ year old jeep with rippled panels and rock dents and chips. It still shines when we wash it but our expectation was simple: one color, our color of choice, door jambs, tailgate jamb, no peeling or flaking for at least 2-4 years.

We got all that for $650. I'm happy. It's not a $4000 paint job I have to worry about with every trail branch that scrapes along our sides or every rock that kicks up onto the grill.

Honestly, crappy paint jobs are caused by crappy prep, paint, or people. Make sure you do good prep, use good paint, and you are dealing with good people and you'll be ok.

They tend to do a lot of overspray, windows, everything, it's horrible, I know a lot of people who have gotten stuff done there and it comes out crappy and has orange peel and what not.
Needless to say I don't mind bad paint job because it will get messed up sooner or later, I just don't want my windows messed up. Or anything like that

Prep, prep, prep. The more you do up front, the better the result. Orange peel can be remedied for some extra bucks or some sweat equity on your part. Overspray comes off too. The more ya pay, the more you get. I wouldn't be putting a high dollar paint job on something I KNOW is going to get messed up.

Yeah yeah, I just want it to look good before it gets messed up, it will get wheeled when I'm squared away, with my back issues, I mean I won't be wheeling it that hard... Daily driver for now, can't afford for it to be down

I see a lot of bungee cords in his future. How much did you say you weigh, Jake?
