Looks good. I'm thinking of getting my sprayed a different color. Luckily my dealership has a bodyshop but they still want an arm and a leg. My paint's actually in really good shape 'cept for some trail pin striping. Maybe some buffing and some wax until I actually decide if I want it khaki colored or not. Btw, whaddya pay?

Lifted, locked, and leaking!

I had Macco spray an old car of mine a while ago. I did the body work and they sprayed it, actually did a real nice job on the paint. Had typical overspray in areas, but no dust or runs.

for the urathane paint ( which I would recommend ) it was $490 . that was a single stage with a built in clear . it wouldn't make a difference with white paint , but with a darker color I would get a seperate clear . then I had 2 huge dent in the hood pulled out and some small fender dings straightened . total was $750 . I coulda done it myself ( had a friend who would spray for me ) but the paint itself was over $500 ! Flames came in today so I'll snap off a few more pics when I'm done with that .

That looks good... I like the blue and white together. I like that you didn't go to big with the flames.

I had mine with the same paint job at Maaco last year and it came out great. The only thing I would say to do is remove anything that can come off with a bolt or screw. The tape everything and you get a much better job if they don't have to tape. I had a whole new hood put on and all the rust around my windshield fixed along with some dents pulled here and there and it came out to $950.

Get the urathane paint for sure. This one and the clear coat paint are the only two Maaco offers that can be buffed. The rest are only able to be hand waxed. Mine is a darker color and it still came out good.

Clearcoat is always better but if you are going to take care of it yet wheel it why spend the extra money. The urathane comes with a 4 year warranty.

Huge mud holes are like hot chicks with an STD. You want to hit them hard and fast but you’re afraid of the consequences

Why did they paint the vent and the windshield sprayers?

didn't you see the topic ?? It does say Maaco ! Acctually , I tried to remove EVERYTHING that wasn't goint to get painted and told them that when I dropped it of , but some things didn't want to come off . I took a look at how nasty the plastic was on the sprayers and said 'PAINT EM !' . As for the vent .... mine came white .
