Question by : Does anybody know where I can get a good paint job for my car near the Los Angeles area?
I want to change the color of my Honda Prelude from red to grey for a relatively cheap price. It has a few minor dents which need to be fixed and the red paint is fading away. Can anyone recommend a good place?

Does Los Angeles has MAACO? You can search the detail address of it in Los Angeles online(by search engine, such as google,yahoo, bing and so on.).
MAACO is a national low-cost chain that can often paint a car for between $ 250-$ 400.
Middle of the road auto body shops often will quote prices between $ 1,000 and $ 2,000, depending on the amount of work.
Custom body shops can charge $ 4,000 to $ 8,000 if it involves removing many parts, changing the color of the car, detailing the engine, rebuilding mechanical parts, chrome plating, etc.
Tip: Be sure to ask about a shop’s warranty. Bad paint jobs are notorious for lasting less than three years. Warranties can run five years. A place like MAACO might offer a six month warranty against peeling.
There are many possible upgrades. Even at a discount shop such as MAACO, some customers will choose to upgrade the paint to a higher-quality one. Customers may also choose additional layers of paint (more than two) or a layer of clear coat.
When cars are repainted, sometimes they need body repairs beforehand. Small repair jobs (dents, etc.) can run $ 200-$ 500.
An advice for protecting your new paint car from scratch.
It’s better to prepare special quality car cover for protection. It will keep your car against rain, dust, scratches from pets, tree branches and slight collision, bird droppings and so on.
