I took my 1966 MGB to Maaco a couple of weeks ago to have it repainted. I just needed to protect the metal from rusting, as the original body guy did a crappy job. Maaco did an excellent job on Mrs. L.A.'s Tacoma. I opted for the guaranteed-for-five-years paint job, and they sanded it down to the bare metal. I was hoping to pick it up today.
Maaco just called. They said ‘We were moving cars around, and there was an accident.’ They damaged my right-front fender, and will have to repair it and repaint it. They also asked where to get the chrome moulding, as that is not repairable. I sent them a link to Moss Motors. They said I might be able to pick it up late next week.
As it happens, Mrs. L.A. injured her foot Wednesday night and cannot drive. I guess I don’t have to pick up the MGB, leave the Prius at Maaco, and then catch an hour-long bus ride to pick the Prius up.
