Can anyone recomend a decent paint shop to get my trunk painted in the southern New Jersey area?? I've heard MAACO isn't the best quality I wanted to see if anybody knew any better places, Thanks!

Maaco isn't the best quality if you do the $200 job which they just wash the car down and put paint on top of whats already there. But if you're willing to not cheap out they'll strip (if needed), primer(if needed to be stripped), paint, and clear coat it with some pretty good results. But just remember even if you don't cheap out with them results will still vary.

well i know they go through that whole process.. but a buddy of mine who's in the Auto Body field said MAACO doesn't use the very good paint usually so I just don't know if MAACO is the best choice

So then bring your own paint and save yourself some money. Typically paint jobs cost less if you bring your own paint and unless the shop is made up of total dicks who want to sell you over priced paint instead of making money off the labor (which is where the money is in any work) they should use your stuff.
