Maaco Price?

What does Maaco charge for their basic paint job for a Wrangler, i.e. without door jams? I'm in the San Francisco area.

I looked at them last year here in Texas and there cheapest was $800. I looked at some they were just finishing with the same paint job and it sucked. Im doing the Roll on paint job this month and can make it look better than macco for $100 total

Viencent, try checking out some other Maacos if you have others nearby. I've heard it varies a lot from place to place.

I've seen a Maaco job and it's not worth the cost. I did my own using the dupli color system. 2 quarts of primer, 6 quarts of color, 1 quart of metallic flake and 2 quarts of clear, lots of tarps, a gravity gun from harbor freight and my 30 gallon air compressor, I have a really good paint job that I proudly say I did.

If you have a big enough air compressor its great, my compressor (and lighting conditions) were underpowered so I have quite a few shadows when you get up close to it. Overall I'm happy with the results, just buy a extra quart or two of color. You can always return what you don't use but it's a pain to stop and get more when you need it.

Every maaco paint job I have ever seen is terrible. for what they charge you can go buy all the materials and tools you need and have all the more knowledge and experience in the end.

Maacos are individually owned franchises. Sorry for the shotty service elsewhere. And you get what you pay for. If you are looking for a quality paintjob you can buy it, if you are looking for charming a cheap that is also available. Also, remember that 95% of the finished product comes for preperation work before the paint application. If you dont fix bumps and cracks it will look like shiite. But if you are ever in Maryland let me know I will hook a brotha up.

BTW we dont all use the same paint and materials. I can attest to using mostly 3M products and PPG paint.

I like my sugar with coffee and cream.

i wouldn't let maaco paint a radio flyer wagon. they're paint jobs are hideous, probably because they buy cheap *** paint that they buy in bulk that comes in 55 gallon drums(and do **** like mixing blue and yellow to make green). lol from what i've seen of their work they can't even tape off a vehicle much less paint one

I just got a quote for around $700 for the basic paint job from my local Maaco. The paint itself was around $200 bucks, the rest was all prep work, such as sanding the hood, cowl, and windshield. I've decided not to do it.

My mazda has a Maaco paint job, Only ran $600 its holding up great after 3 years . The painter was good, and the prep was done properly

The white spots in the body line of the bumper is wax residue, and one spot was rubbed off my where the license plate used to sit
