Video: Romanian painter is cheaper and better than your local MAACO

romanian painter

Getting your car painted is an annoying affair, unless you’re having the entire vehicle redone. There’s GOOD NEWS, however, if you have a classic Dacia that needs some paint work, and you live in Romania. Just hire the guy in the video shown below the break. He uses an airbrush powered by his own air, and he gets the job done perfectly.

Well, as perfectly as we can tell by watching a one minute video. Still, it’s an impressive bit of color matching and paint correction. See for yourself after the jump.

      1. I'm not saying that its a bad video or that there is a problem. I'm just saying I have Top Gear on the brain.

  1. That is pretty hardcore. Looks pretty good all things considered. A lot of a good paint job is in the prep work. Too bad he didn't take the extra ten seconds to mask off the bumper.

  2. At least you get your money's worth. He paints everything including the tires and the license plate.

    1. "Hi, I’m Earl Sheiße. I’ll paint any car, any color for $29.95 (as long as it’s brown)."

  3. But he's not wearing one of those hats like Jeremy Clarkson wore during their Romania trip a couple of years ago. Also, without a water separator, how do you keep fisheyes out of the paint?

  4. Only tangentially-related, but my dear Uncle Ed was an auto adjuster for decades. He could tell you, to within $20, how much it was going to cost to fix damage. I swear he developed x-ray vision, he did it so long.
    Anyway, he was NYC born-and-bred, and knew a few guys who had high-end paint & body shops. Still, what amazed all of them, is how the paint shot by this one shop known as The Koreans, turned out perfectly, yet they did it outside, in the parking lot or on the street.
