Congrats Jonesy. I liked the original patina but can't wait to see it at HH.

I forgot to mention - you MUST ABSOLUTELY be crystal clear...with tape indicating...what you DONT want painted.

They did a great job on the rear cross member too

I don't care because I have to replace it - have one in the garage. But for future reference you must be clear.

It's pretty much standard practice to have a set of "paint tires" to throw on the vehicle when it goes to the paint shop.

Yeah X2...don't want to nah say on your feel good but there is a reason MAACO doesn't have a good rep...most of the all bad from the 80's.

If it falls off in 5 years, you are still doing well. A 20 year job might be 4x what you paid.

No reason why Maaco can't do a decent job if you pay them enough. Its the $249 special that is really not worth doing. Besides, "it's a Rover."

The quality of the work is not in the application of the paint, it's in the prep.

Its significantly in the quality of the paint as well.

MAACO and old earl scheib have been known to use farm paint "impliment paint" enamels similar to what the military uses.

Intended to keep rust at bay, not stay shiny. They'd oxidize in a matter of months.

Modern single stage paints are pretty dang great though. and epoxy primers? forgetaboutit. You can paint that stuff over oil and it'll stick.

Thing with maaco and old (now defunct) earl scheib like anything a lot of the quality comes from the management.

Funny thing, someone bought the earl scheib name and brought it back. Crazy right?

X2...yeah those names are pretty old school, Macco and Scheib. I remember the Broadcast TV commercials from way back, when we only had 12 or so channels and didn't "pay" for TV...

Took her over to MD to Dean @ Independent LR to get the rear cross member sorted.

So I decided to go the "scenic" route vs the beltway - and went across the Potomac River on the Jubal E Early cable ferry

Good eyes.
And his wife worked this Triumph shirt on their wedding announcement! RIP. Kevin succumbed to cancer last month. He will be missed.

Dean will take good care of her!

Did you take the drive down River road from the ferry? I love that route.
