Well it is kind of a bad story....we agreed on $800 for the paint job and removing the door dings. When I went to pick the car up it looked awful, it had over spray, orange peel, runs, dirt in the clear coat, and you can see some of the dings still. I tried to give them a chance to fix it but they just left my car sitting there collecting dust....so I just went and picked it up and I didn't pay them anything. Long story short, I still need to get the paint fixed....its a 10 footer.

No, It was actually a shop with a very good reputation....the problem was that they must have been busy and the guy that was supposed to paint my car (a really good painter) had another guy paint it (who sucks).

Did you try and talk to the guy who was supposed to paint your car?

Yeah, I told him to call me when he is not busy. I might give him another chance.....I don't know, I hate being lied to.

Re: Some updated pictures...(new wheels and paint)

I wouldn't care if it was the Pope Benedict himself. Your word is your word period, once a man loses that he is damaged goods. By letting someone else paint your car (practice) and do a crappy job that says a lot about him. I could understand if he was doing this as a favor and was taking less money so you had to wait until he wasn't super busy but letting someone else paint it and doing a horrible job would be the end for me. Is there no integrity anymore? Take your money elsewhere.

Is your girlfriend on your side?
