Can I give my car a paint job myself?
If you want to do it yourself, you'll need a well-ventilated area where dust and dirt won't fly onto the wet car and ruin the new paint job while it's drying. ... You'll also need a spray gun, primer, and glossy car paint. For a professional-looking job, you'll need specialized tools and a lot of time and patience.
Does MAACO use good paint?
Most Maaco's can give you a quality paint job, but you'll have to pay for it just like any other paint and body shop. Well, all things considered, no they don't do a good job.
Should I sand my car before taking it to MAACO?
Part of what you're paying Maaco for is the general sanding of the old paint on the car. So you do any repairs to the peeling paint, stone chips and dings and Maaco will sand and scuff the rest of the car. Make sure they use hardener in the paint and pay extra for the primer/sealer coat.
Is it worth painting your own car?
Just make sure that it will be a valuable investment. If the car isn't in good condition otherwise, repainting it may turn out to be more expensive than the car is worth on resale. Some insurance policies cover the cost of bodywork if the vehicle was damaged in an accident.
Can I paint over old paint without priming?
You can use a primer to thoroughly cover the old color, then apply 1 or 2 coats of the new paint. Paint & primer in one paints are a newer option, which could be ideal for your situation and even shorten the project.

Why does MAACO paint cars for so cheap?
The primary reason why Maaco paint cars so cheap is because the price that you are given does not take into account the cost of preparation. Instead, the price that you are given is solely based on them spraying paint on your vehicle with no work being done to prepare the car.
Do you have to Paint Your Fender to match MAACO?
The originals were NOT painted…That’s the color of the plastic…If you paint your fender, it will NEVER match…You will have to paint the entire car to make it look right… Don’t expect a good color match from Maaco.
Can a paint store make up a gallon of paint?
Paint stores have a color matching device so that if you bring in a sample, they can make up a gallon of any color for you. Ask Maaco if they can do this. Color fade due to sunlight could eventually make a mismatch. They should be able to clear coat it too.
How much does it cost to paint an SUV?
Hiring a pro to paint your SUV could cost up into the thousands, but a reasonable price would be from $600-$900. Collision repair and additional prep are common price variables when painting SUVs because they are taken offroad more than sedans when performing repaint, so this will make the price fluctuate.
