But they do have SOME good paint jobs but those cost as much money as other good places.

I wouldn't get your truck painted at Maaco if I were you. I have heard so many bad things about them. I hear they don't do any prep work either and that is one of the most crucial parts of painting something.

my parents had them repair the bumper on our car and they did a good job. im just it wasnt that "ambassador paint service" though as just getting the bumper done cost more than an entire car in those commercials

but they did a good job and the paint matched perfectly
