Re: Maaco paint?
As the reciepant of a MAACO paint job I can safely say that you should save your money if you want the paint to last. Like said on page 2, there is little if no sanding, a layer of paint, and no clear coat (that I could tell). It does look wonderful for the first few months and I took the picture that is my avatar shortly after getting the truck painted. Now, a year and a half later, there are deep scratches, lots of scuffs from when I simply used a very mildly abrasive sponge to clean, and plenty of chips on the front bumper from normal driving. I wish I had left it stock black!
Granted, you did say it was for a prerunner, and as such MAACO would be a cheap alternative, however if I were in california like you are I would just see 4evermodding and take advantage of that offer!
1997 B2300, Expo buckets and center console, a bit of blue paint, and the dual ignition mod. Just over 80k Miles.
