i definitely agree with you. ultimately what i'd tell you is if you can do all your prep work yourself, have it redone white by a professional. that would be the most economical solution leading to the best results.

That has to do with the prep. NOT the paint. I have had 4 vehicles painted by MACCO without one issue. But i did all the prep. All they had to do was tape off the window openings and wipe it down

Well, with your capitalization of "MACCO" I feel that you are trying to call me an idiot or we must not be talking about the same place, because the places here are called MAACO...and they do a shit job...They must not even wipe it down because I know for a fact that my buddy that took his sierra there did a great job on prepping his truck, I was with him when he dropped it off...Didnt even make it 4 months. Hail storms or not, no one else's paint started flaking afterwards...My altima was parked next to his truck and it never flaked.

This cab was painted by maaco and he got it back yesterday...Only to find out they didnt even paint the bumper and where they did paint, they failed...Here is a pic of the bumper, you cant really tell other than its not shiny and the other pic is overspray on the driver's door...I didnt have time to look the whole van over, but 2 mistakes in less than 2 minutes of looking at it is pretty terrible.

The bumper was supposed to be painted black, like they did the sides and the back bumper...meth heads.


Here is the nice overspray you can look forward to from a maaco job.


You wouldnt think its that big of a deal, but it sticks out like a sore thumb when walking out to the van....When you pay hundreds of dollars for something, they should at least do it right.
