In Reply to: Maaco job, or rust? posted by Manny on April 26, 2000 at 16:54:59:
I recently had my Toyota pickup done at the local Maacco shop here in Colorado. The body was basically straight, I did some minor bodywork - surface rust, a few dings, and I also stripped the truck of all trim, bumpers, etc. in the hope that the paint crew would spend more time cleaning and spraying if they didn't have to deal too much with masking. For $360, they did an OK job - I wish I had spent more time on the prep work - some of the areas that needed more sanding really stood out, but by and large the spray job was good and was quite an improvment over the previous faded black. I don't think *I* would take my '02 to Maacco, but for the price you can get a decent job. The key seems to be the prep work.
