Anybody try in Richmond?

So i was getting quotes to paint the rear/front bumper of my car the same color as the rest of my car. Possibly the side skirts as well. The guy he quoted me 275 or something under 300... which is pretty good to me. The quality Im not so sure. Has anyone here ever tried this guy out?

Theres a reason why its so cheap. To get high quality you have to pay decent money. At quality shops your looking $400-$500 per bumper and about $ 200 for the side skirts. That being said I do not have personal experience with that place but I have had the pleasure of fixing poor work done by some shops and it's not worth it to have your car done twice

Haha, I knew someone that worked at Macao and lets just say he told me they don't even sand the car lol. So, I have no clue how long the paint is even going to stick on the car. Also, no taking off parts either. Straight out masking off the sections and painting. Guarantee paint peel!!! Good if you want to make a quick sale on a car.

Anyone done any rust repair with them? Might be worth the quick-fix... rather than me spending a week welding and stuff on my own.

Edit: Couple pages of google searches just show random forums with the same question.. usually answered with a new-user promoting it.
Except for vancouvercivicclub.. one member says "okay job"

Si it will be a quick fix alright will look for a few months then it will come back... the rust that is!

I have delt with these guy's as a supplier for parts and I wouldn't take my car there as I have seen the work they do!! You get what you pay for, i'd rather do it myself and spray it with rattle cans and wetsand it smooth lol
