doesn't look too bad. Maaco went bankrupt in Canada for doing lousy body and paint work, but yours looks decent in the pics

it looks good, but the paint is cloudly, i woulda stuck with stock paint, no matter what the color, they need clear coat, i would go back before it cures, and have them do it, TRUST ME, I DO PAINT, that thing needs a good buff and clear, lol
other than that, it looks good, like the color, and yes, u do need rims, im not a fan of the hub caps

The stock paint on the car was the light blue and it looked awwful, when i tell you awful, holy shit. So i decided Maaco, the guy at maaco is a complete dickhead and wanted to do the paintjob for 500$. I told him c ya later and then he said 315. Good deal for me. Then somebody opened the door on my car and ran off so the Driver door has a nice looking scrape of white on it. I went back to maaco to get a touch up bottle for my color paint, like a 4 or 5 ounce bottle and he wanted 20 bucks. I'll do that later, but besides that it looks nice. I really want to get rid of the hubcaps lol. Anyone know a cheap place to buy nice wheels? and are 15"? I just bought a spoiler off ebay which looks nice and im gonna put on when it gets here, im taking the car to get a nice wrap around stripe on the back just like the Super bee Chargers and the Dart swingers. Stripe is white by the way.

Got a nice intake in it, whole new Front Suspension and back suspension, the car rides drives like a dream, all new gauges and panels, i want to sell this car and get a 2nd gen Intrepid but its gonna be hard to let go of her. =/ well thats all lol. The car only has 87k on it, and this 3.3 Pushrod is gonna last a long long time. Best Chrysler motor by far.

With that kind of milage, your better off than with a gen 2 .

Go to the junk yard and get a set of LHS rims and leather interior!

Eagle vision TSI chrome wheels would look good too!

Check on kijiji or craigs list for the wheels.

That trep has a lot of life left in her ,with the suspention done and now paint,treat her right and you'll be
"stuck with it" for another 150,000 miles!

i would like some nice wheels for my car myself, go to discounttire.com i believe it is, they are pretty good, and type in stock tires for an 1987 chevy camaro IROC-Z V8, with the 16" wheels, they come up with these sick tires for like 80 bucks each, its falken i believe, they are the bang for the buck. rims go cheap too, about 120 each wheel for a good set, but anywhere from 89-500 bucks a wheel, its all your style desires. ill be sticking intrepid ES wheels on my vision ESI

hey not bad but could use a clear and buff but not from maco they do ok paint work it can get very costly for paint they are able to save on cost because they tape things instead of pulling handels and such weather strip and such but it's ok and alot better then faded flaking paint so good luck

Usually the maaco paint job will look good right after you get it. The problem is for 315 dollars and a whole car, they basically cut as much corners as they could. For example, I bet they did not remove the side moulding on your car. Also, I bet they did not remove the rubber window weather guard around the door. They are supposed to remove and paint underneath as well so there's no sudden paint edge at where the foreign surface meets the paint. If they didn't do this, then when the weather get warmer and the rubber starts to expand, it will basically push the paint off the door. That's exactly what happens to my car when I had them paint my car door. So basically you get what you paid for, which in this case is: 1. single stage enamel paint (not base/clear), 2. a car wash before the paint, 3. a light sand of the original finish to allow the new paint to stick, 4. a quick spray of probably 2 coats of paint.

Definitely worth a shot. Did they give you a warranty of any kind?

They will probably say that you backed into something though.
