    and just so you know, rich, adhesion promoter is only used on raw plastic pieces with no factory E-coat. with light scuffs and adhesion promotor they don't need to prime. They can go straight to tinted sealer, color and then clear. So...…. not only does it look terrible but they ripped you off... and they charged you 1 hour of body time when the bumper was already R&I'd as well as overhauled....

  • JmBStudio68
    JmBStudio689 muaj më parë

    Painting is all in the prep. the entire car must be wiped with a cleaner, then sanded with the appropriate grit, then wiped again to remove sanding residue. Tack rag, paint, clear. Let cure, drive the next day. Macco is just like Earl Shieb back in the day...he would paint any car for 99.00. How did he do this? No prep and paints certain colors on certain days, also it is a single stage paint with no clear coat. Adhesion promoter is nonsense unless you are painting plastic or chrome. People that want cheap paint jobs deserve the crap they get. Quality costs. JmB

    Battleship Gray? Back in the late 70s I had my Mustang painted by Earl Schrib “ I’ll paint any car for 99.95” When I looked at the color chart it was supposed to be a shade of blue. After car was painted it looked the color of a Battleship. I was the joke of all my friends, it really was an ugly color. Looks much much better on your Tesla. This is not a dis on you, maybe a self dis.

    This was just so painful to watch. From the poor paint job, the over paying for said paint job, to the fact that you could have had it done by a reputable shop for that price, to only have the paint peel anyway, to you accepting this and not getting a full refund. It hurts my head. This is probably why I watch Samcrac and not this channel. One and done. I'm out.

    honestly most body shops would have done it for the same amount if not less and done better. I worked at one and that is terrible for what you paid, sorry you went through that. Of course the paint needs to stick to the bumper after its painted and they screw people over by the up charges. The 179 is to get you through the door. Otherwise its one beautiful tesla.

    about 20 years ago i had my entire car painted Electric Blue Pearl from Maaco, the total cost was about $1000. It came out perfect and I got a lot of compliments about the color. It's sad because I think Maaco is independently owned so there are good owners out there but not very many. The Maaco i went to actually turned into a non Maaco paint shop and charge quite a bit more for their services thesedays.
