Last issue we showed you the prep work involved in a full color change at Maaco of Anaheim. Besides the typical collision repair that Maaco's known for, they are also a full-service auto body shop, so we gave them a call when we had a few extra requests for our Nissan Frontier project. It may surprise you to see a custom truck being painted by the collision experts at Maaco, but no one paints more cars and trucks in America than Maaco and with a nationwide warranty, it's no wonder why. Check out the finale and see what can be accomplished in about a week's time. If this doesn't inspire you to revamp your ride, we don't know what will.

From the Driver Seat
We didn't go too crazy with custom requests, but the addition of painted interior plastics really helps take the interior up a level. On the outside, the bright metallic blue is much more interesting than plain white, and the color-matched bumper and emblem-less tailgate are subtle changes that add up to make a good impression. It would take a careful inspection to discover that the Frontier didn't roll off the assembly line with a blue paintjob.
