where do i start?.....paint prep "spray putty not sanded pre paint in spot's" uneven looking ..."orbital sand mark's in spot's"..."no paint in visable spot's" palm print's around side edge's of bonnet! :roll:
spoke to him today, can't get it fixed till feb :twisted:
& he said "if i knew you were going to be so fussy i would have charged you double!!!!"
i don't know? is to much to ask to get what you pay for?
yes he had other car's that were going to earn him more cash!
but sloppy work is not on!!! if make a deal/dead line to get a job done ...do it or offer an explanation!
his work on another car i've seen is good!....(it was a full respray + bonnet mod) i don't know? just beware.

Yeah mate, Don't leave it like that...

Just tell him, you paid, you deserve good work and ARE going to get it from him.

You didn't ask for a cheap half a*** job right? so why should he assume, and you pay for it.

i did'nt have much tongue left when i went back the first time (from biteing it so much)
but gave him the chance to do save face on a bad job.....at the end of the day it's his name on the bonnet & can give or take away work from him!
it has'nt been even a week yet, so will save my final verdict till a week or two's time once the paint settle's....so far look's great :wink:
