paint job with those price....maybe only 1 or 2 layer of paint or they will use a cheap paint on your car. The paint might crack or fade quicker. what does the warranty really cover?..paint fade? paint crack?

please don't go cheap on your paint job. if your going to paint your car do it RIGHT. if you go cheap you will regreat it later.

if you do decide to go cheap ask them how manly layer of paint and clear coat will they put on the car and how will they prep the car and what brand of paint they will use on the car and so on.... then decide to paint or not

for the price you pay to get it painted at maaco or earl scheib its pretty damn good. If your car is your daily driver, and don't really care to much on the paint, I say go for it. I'll be going to maaco or eal scheib to get my car painted. I could give a rat's ass about my paint. It's going to get ****ed up anyways. Oh yeah try to prep the car yourself. It'll turn out better and it'll be cheaper.

i agree with drummin.... prep it yourself first then let them paint it. i went to maaco with the $300+ paint but after the etimate it totaled a little above 1k. maybe my car had alot of dents. so they will charge u up the a$$ for repairs.

actually, if you do the prep work yourself, they're not guaranteed to give you a warranty because their excuse is that they didn't do the prep work themselves and can't be held liable for its quality.

Damn, I wasn't aware of this. Has that happen to you?

no, but that's what a few paintshops said when i called around here in SoCal. i asked each of them how much i would save if i primed and sanded the car myself, and they told me that they wouldn't be able to offer me a warranty if i did that. bummer...
