I took my brand new truck to Maaco (first mistake) to get an estimate to have lower part of doors painted and 4 (off the truck)wheel well trims. Not
only was the estimator rude, as the phone rang, he raced inside without
excusing himself, but came back with an estimate of $1,000.00.
As this was somewhat of a shock to me, I said, "wow, how is it you can paint a whole car for $299?" His reply "well, we have to use a very expensive paint". What he should have said "there"s one born every minute".
As a left the shop a couldn't help to notice the number dirty cars there
were parked in there lot with recent paint jobs, and poor ones at that.
