To think I almost got my Dakota done there. Absolutely appalling. Sorry, had to share this.

Well, he/she/it deserved that if they were dumb enough to drive it off their lot looking like that.

You'd better have it straight before you go there. They basically just mask (somewhat) and spray and besides you can't polish a turd.

No joke, do a little searching and you'll read loads of reports like that! I even heard they paint over bird sh*t.

hell prep the car your self to your liking then have them paint it.... they paint decent but prep work is 90% of the paint job....show cars spend tons of time on prep to get it right..... only a couple hours in the booth.... pay them to clear it no matter what level you purchase as long as you preped the current paint and scuffed it all it should stick.. the extra clear will give you room to play and be able to buff out any imperfections to a degree.

generally speaking Macco can paint, but thats it, most will do the prep work but wont do any repairs, you see how the paint was like glass? yea other than the poor bodywork the paint job was decent,
good for a race car
