You see the reason that it looks so good is that the photos were taken the day after. :-)
When you get a $20.00 paint job (regardless of how much is paid) the quality is.... err... speaks for itself.
I would have been tempted (if I was trying to save money) to do it myself. or... sell it and buy something with a better finish or... pay Car Star or someone to do the job right (though as mentioned that would cost money).
Good luck in Getting Maaco to part with any of your cash (they know their reputation can't get worse) . Let us know if there's any luck on that front.

Ahm Earl Scheibe and Ah'll paint ANY car for only $39.95.... of course it will cost you extra if you want it masked off. And we can paint over that bondo stuff until we redo it. Did you say you wanted the surface "clean" ???? No problem.... That'll be $625.57, and California tax, and of course you wanted the extended warrantee which we extend from the no warrantee...... Would you be interested in having the overspray removed from the winders so's ya kan git 'er home?

I had a paint job done at earl sheib some years back and it was suppose to have been their best plan. The paint started fading after 3 years! Go figure.

I had a Sheib job done in the late 80s. I got the car back and it had flakes of steel wool imbedded in the trunk paint. The first rain it was speckled with rust.

MAACO taught me how to paint a car. After doing the bodywork myself, removing chrome and primering a 77 Monarch, I caled MAACO about their advertised $200.00 special. They told me that was only good for painting the same color. And door jambs were an extra $10.00. And trunk and hood inside were an extra $100.00. On top of $400.00 for the basic paint job over primer. I went to Sears and bought a compressor, gun, and extra airhose for $300.00 and did it in my 2 car garage myself. It didn't come out bad at all. Hell, it isn't rocket science! LOL

The body work is the hard part... now, hand me a roller... I'll make it really nice for ya :-) I bet the clean up and prep to cover everything took longer than the job itself :-)

I love the idea of posting a site about your griences, and allowing the orginal offender to buy it from you.
Just a few suggestions, coming from this causal surfer:
First, I saw your story, but didn't see all the actions you took to correct the issue. Yelling a lot doesn't work. Do you have copies of complaint letters that you can post on you site and their replies?
Second, not being a lawyer, I understand to protect yourself from liable, you need to state only the facts. Don't tone up or down the conversation, just state what was said and took place.
Third, I strongly believe you need to mark the word Macco as a trademark,and declaire who the actual owner is. Because even thought you believe you have a valid complaint, you can be forced to remove the name. Trademark holders can legally shut down a person if the tm is used in such a fashion it losses it's identify/value due to overuse, or failure to identify it as their tm? Remember not a lawyer, just working on what I've seen done to other site owners.
Fourth, get a link back to Macco's site, it could help them notice your site if people click from your site to theirs. Create links to their warranty programs, and refund policies to help your point out.
Fifth, create a mail to link on your site to Macco's main company email address, so vistors can quickly fire off an email that they were surfing and found your site interesting to them.
Six, don't sell the site, cause you migtht incure tax libilbities on it, sale taxe, income tax, etc..... Offer it free with a refund of all your out of pocket expenses.
Seven, see a lawyer, your site, althought entertaining, might not be necessary. A small claimes court decision could correct this issue, faster than a site, and ignore my first 6 suggestions. :-P
later(remember not a lawyer),
