RE: 4000sq paint
Maaco is awesome, particularly the way they include bugs into the final
finish. The four hours of labor will probably be used up masking, unless you
would rather they sand, or maybe you'd rather they fill some dings...
Four hours is about 10% of what you would probably need for a complete
respray. Their painting abilities are pretty good, minimal sags, good
coverage, good gloss, do your own prep, then drive it down with your own
