MAACO and other cheap paint jobs

Like Mike LaRosa said, prep is the key. They did my sisters car, and the paint peeled off the left quarter and the hood rusted through under the paint. This all showed up within six months of the paint job. There was no rust on the hood prior, only on the top of the car where the original paint peeled off. A friend of mine had his car painted by them also, and did all of the prep work himself. He also supplied the paint. Four years later the car still looks good. It all depends on how much money and time you are willing to spend.

The paint on our 1990 200QA has long ago given up the ghost and is
faded, to say the least. I have had the car compounded a few times, and
that works for a month or so. But even with good wax, there is no
keeping the car shiny.

Sooooo - what is the consensus on "quickie" paint jobs? Is it possible
to get something decent? The car has 200k miles, and we would like to
keep it for 3 or 4 more years.....
