Has anyone gotten their car painted out at McConnell's paint & body ? I have heard some pretty horrific stories about how this place isn't any good. Just wondering how accurate those reports are.

It's a cheap price for a paint job that's for sure.

There isn't a chance in Hades that I'd take a vehicle there! If you want great reliable paint work, Volunteer Collision in Mount Carmel is excellent. Have had a couple of jobs done there and the results have been perfect both times.

Do not have your car painted there. I made that mistake and within a few months paint was chipping off. He would not back his warranty and would not fix the paint job. Check his record with BBB. I would not let him help my little child paint a toy car let alone my car.

I am ashamed to admit I took my car there to be painted. It will be my last one too.

i had an older benz painted there and he did a decent job. There was a lot of overspray and I saw some toothless man shaking a can of spray paint. I was nervous at first, but all in all it was good enough to sell to some sucker.

What has kept him in business all these years, what he has had success with, is most likely doing one-time jobs for cheapskates. You can't blame that on him. In terms of a successful, money-making American small-business entrepreneur, I think he has an *excellent* business model because there will never be a shortage of cheapskates walking in the door.

The paint job my car experienced was tranquil. I loved it!! I feel new and different that my car had a face lift. My advice to the readers DON'T BELIEVE what people write most of the time the problem is TIME obviously you have too much. get a life or a new hobby.

if some dont like the quality the they can write about it. i dont see how its evidence of too much time to write few lines about it.

maybe everyones experience wasnt the same as yours. maybe you wouldnt know a good paint job if it bit you on the ass.

get a hobby? for writing about their experiences>

just doesnt seem to apply here.

I loved my paint job. This paint job has been with me for 5 years now and still no problems. You have to let it cure in a garage for about a week after the paint job or have it baked on and clear coated. No problems here!

I have had several painted there, the only problem i ever has was overspray on a window, my truck was painted there in 1997 and it stil looks great (except for some gravel chips).

the paint jobs are good if you want to sell your car right after you get it done.

Use some sense! You get what you pay for. TIP: After you have your car painted there, don't drive off to fast or else your paint will STREAK
