Default New Paint Job

I'm considering getting my Black '95 SSE repainted at MAACO. Anyone'* got a paint job from them. They can do the whole car for about $700. Also, I'd like to get a new grille, front hedlights, rear leanses, side marker lense and emblems. Does anyone know (besides the dealer) where I can these? Thanks.

Macco is one of the worst. Go to an independent, not a chain.

Maaco made my girlfriends sunfire look phenominal, save for a little over spray though...

I had a 98 black Grand Prix SE painted WHITE after a serious "keying" incident. Even had them do the inside of the doors, under the hood, trunk, etc. Except for a few areas you could never tell the car was originally black. It was very affordable (the ONLY reason to go with a chain: "economy of scale")

Maaco uses cheap product. They give their employee'* barley enough products to do a whole car. I had a friend that worked for them here local and he told me the ugly cheap story'* about his employer. If your just getting it painted and it doesnt need a bunch of body work, just take it to either a private painter or try a New car Dealer, They might surprise you with the price. STAY AWAY FROM MAACO....
