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.
