Default Auto body/paint in SW Houston/Stafford?

I'm looking for recommendations for places that'll do inexpensive but good quality paint, preferably in southwest Houston or Stafford/Sugar Land area.

I pretty much need my whole car painted, but as it's already a 10 years old, I'm not looking for show car quality ("very good" would be adequate ), but then again... I haven't heard very positive things about Maaco.

What do you think? Any good/bad experiences in this area?

As long as you do the prep work yourself (sanding, bondoing, etc.) then Maaco or Earl Scheib will lay down some decent paint. Where those shops get you is in the prep work, that's where the real cost lies.

With that said, International Paint & Body in Pearland does really good work.

sugar creek paint and body across from dulles H.S., although might be on the pricey side but does good work.
