he was looking for a price on a good paint job, not a maaco job. maaco will wash the car, scuff it, tape it off without any dis-assembly and shoot a cheap,low grade automotive paint product on it. there will be minor door dings, over spray here and there, and you will get a couple years out of the paint job. if you are happy with it , fine. they will put the car thru in 1 to 2 days. when i do a complete here at my shop, it will take 2 1/2 to 3 weeks. everything comes off the vehicle, glass, moldings, trim, bed, tail gate grille, bumpers, headlamps, inner door trims, door glass ect. all dents and dings are identified and repaired. entire vehicle is sanded/stripped as necessary. corrosion resistant primer is applied. next, surfacer is applied and car is block sanded. any imperfections at this point are corrected. next a second coat of surfacer is applied along with a guide coat, vehicle is then blocked sanded again looking for any more imperfections and corrected as necessary. at this point either another primer coat is applied, or a sealer if necessary. then the vehicle is wet sanded with another guide coat and checked again. if all good, vehicle is then washed again, masked, prepped and moved into the booth. in the booth, final prep is done, wax and grease remover is applied, tack ragged then base color is applied. generally 2-3 coats of base. next 2 -3 coats of clear is applied. and the vehicle is then baked in the booth. after the baking process, the vehicle is left overnight in the booth for cool down. next day, unmasked, then to assembly. all moldings are cleaned and new adhesive applied, all glass reinstalled, doors re-assembled and when finished, vehicle goes for final detail interior and exterior. we will have anywhere from 110 to 130 hours labor easy in a complete. the paint carries a lifetime warranty. i use basf diamont.

some of the sealers i keep on hand here at the shop are rm ep 589, rm dp 31 2k sealer and rm ds 30 2k sealer. ds 30 is a good adhesion promoter over virgin plastics, and is a good topcoat to minimize sanding scratches. this occurrs when a car has been repaired at another shop, and it is pushed thru and too many corners are cut. or if it is something a weekend warrior attempted and needs to get straightened out. also our dp 25,26 27 2k powerfill primers can also be mixed as a wet-on wet (wow) sealers. ep 359 is a low voc epoxy wow sealer
ep 589 is a chromated epoxy wow sealer, i have used this as a base primer on a farmall m that was sandblasted as the initial coat of material. ep689 is a chromate free wow sealer
ep 789 is a black chromated primer that can also be a wow sealer. actual selection is based on individual prjects, and what material was previously applied. we are currently trying to correct previous attempts at a paint job on a 1936 buick for a customer. the gentleman is in his late "70s and has been working on the car. it has dulux enamel, nitrocellulose lacquer (duco), acrylic enamel (possibly centari), lacquer primer, and who knows what else. he is on a limited budget and we are fixing the areas that he messed with. we will end up base/clearing most of the car to get it in the ball park.
