I'm betting they sprayed it without prepping it, didn't fix any dents, and got over spray where it shows like on tires and trim.

The old saying that you get what you pay for couldn't be more accurate than it is here.

One of our ambulance manufacturers sub-contracts their paint work to Maaco. Paint is one of the worst issues with these vehicles. We constantly have bubbling starting within six months on BRAND NEW vehicles. When they remount vehicles, the paint never sticks well and there are ongoing problems. This is one of many reasons we're changing to a new manufacturer.

Personally, you will never find me taking a vehicle to Maaco.

I'm planning on using a roller and Rustoleum on my black 89 this summer. Lots of sanding time will go into it, but in the end it will be cheaper and look a hell of a lot better than Maaco could ever get it.

o.k here is a brief detail of only SOME of the ISSUES..

1- paint and clear coat drips thru out the whole car.
2- ALL my black molding , trim and weather stripping are now white.
3- i have what looks like lines and cracks thru out the whole car in the paint.
4- i have quarter size INDENTS in the paint on the whole car. wtf from where.?
5- i have BLUE lines and paint cracks all over my hood and front bumper. where the hell did the color blue come from.?
6- they did not take off my license plate to paint behind it. did they not have a phillips.?
7- there is white paint and over spray all over all 4 of my tail lights. ver very bad amount.
8- they did not spray paint under the wing on the quarter panles but they sprayed it with primer so when you open the trunk you will see a grey triangle on eacj quarter panel from the tips of the wing... now this is just stupid..
9- they painted the car and must have hit something with my passanger side mirror as its off line and now the old paint is showing where it is crooked. and my mirror is scratched up but they tried to cover it up by repainting it,,
10- :they even painted my whole entire muffler tip white and they cleared it too but they could'nt paint under the wing
11- i also had to ask them for a razor so i could scrape the white over spray off my windshield to drive the car home..
12- there is white paint on my 2 of my tires...
13- there is alot of white paint on my blue fog lights.
14- there is plenty of over spray on my corner lights..

i could keep going but im sure you'* get the point by now..


and when i brought all these issues up to the actual boss of that bracnh he had basically told me as blunt as could be that if i wanted him to fix it i had to pay an extra $200 plus. and then he had the ballz to just walk away from me and lock himself in his office...

all of this and he did'nt even throw in any vasoline or a condom.


and i even payed an extra $99 for a value prep but it honestly dont look like they sanded a damn inch of the car....


oh and i forgot to add that they left my car outside with the alarm unarmed and they even broke my trunk pin for the alarm after i specifically asked them to please make sure the alarm is on if they leave it out side over night...

and my radio was on a rock station when i only listen to rap cd'* and the bass was all the way up as if they were trying to knock the building down with my system for $h!ts and giggles.....

yes i said i would pay them $50-$100 extra if it was good enough
and i even told them i had 3 more cars to bring back if my friends like the work they did..


its the worst paint job i had ever seen done..

even earl shy paint jobs that were done outside in the street looked better than mine
