Well considering most people go for the cheap paint jobs, they get what they pay for. Either get their premium paint, whatever they call it, or go to a better shop or dealership. I had paint work done on a 96 mystic cobra (google it) and the dealership was cheaper than maaco. IDK about maaco but I talked the dealership down on labor too. My brother has had work done at maaco, it comes out good but he never keeps cars long so I cant speak for the longevity. I had one of there cheap jobs on a grand prix and it lasted 2 years parked outside. Which really isnt bad considering the price.
Edit: Secondary thought, a cavalier I owned had a cheap paint job, not sure if it was maaco and when I waxed it it pretty much ruined the paint. There were swirls where I made little circles to wax it. But Ive seen my friend do a better paint job in his garage than that cavalier had. So idk who did it.
ask to look at a car they painted.. i talked to a guy once.. it was expensive once they throw in the labour costs n other hidden fee's, it wasn't worth it. i'd say don't use macco unless theyre givin you an amazing deal u cant get anywhere else.
well you have to consider the price too. So to get a cheap professional multi coat job, you might be as cheap as 2k if you know someone.
I got a maaco job done on an old car, 1984 porsche 944. Cost me 300 bucks, lasted for 4 years, the whole time i had the car, till i sold it. And it looked decent, after a wash and shine it looked good. I can post pics of it if you want to see what black looks like, or look in my photos ive got 1 pic in there of it
Depends on what u wanna do with the car maaco doesn't do bad jobs at some of their locations I just somehow found one that sucked I had mine painted less than a yr ago and the body work they did is already cracking I should take it back but I don't want the headache of getting another rental car for a week
get what you pay for, I'd go and find out and shop around. I plan to get my truck repainted once I get some money and maaco is one of the places I am checking into. I do not plan to go too cheap but not a ton, not worried about a great job. Yea I want a good paint job but its not like a new car or anything.
macco paint jobs suck they do a poor job sanding and preparing for paint so when they do paint when everything is done you have tiny grainy looking spots hard to see from far but up close it looks garbage my friend got his old civic painted black from gold they didnt even paint the door jams...
I was wondering how I would convert the back lights on the cobalt. In my case I did install an LED light but they hyperflash. I tried a Load Resistor but occasionally the back turn lights would not blink. I have not replaced the main break lights in the back just the turn signal lights.
Coming from a two-year placement in Germany in the Army, I looked closely at the Chevrolet Cobalts Americans owned, and the native European Opel Astra which I personally owned. Close comparison between the Astra "G" (98-04) and the Cobalt show striking similarities in body. All lines and designs...
Hi guys, I have an 06 and older stereo and it sucks, no aux, usb, and the buttons dont have paint on them anymore, im thinking of putting in a double DIN pioneer to match my factory sound system, anyone know if you need a bezel for the radio or is it just a perfect fit? thanks,
