***Repair work has been done since, my updates to this are on page 17*** Try to keep this short as I can, just looking for advice on next move. First, my car has been gone for a year and half. I got screwed by a DIFFERENT guy last year, lost $2000, a year of my life, and and got no paint. Bad move, sent car 2 hours away from home. So this is my second attempt at a paintjob. I got it home and found another bodyshop I thought was the one. I wrote up a very detailed contract and was signed by both and have everything well documented, receipts, everything. 6 week paint/body job promised and stated in contract, he knew what I just went through and said that wont happen here. I got the car 6 months and 1 week later after finally saying "I am done and coming to get the car". They then hurried to finish things before I got there a few days later. If I listed all issues this would be to long, so I am going to point out some of the worse ones. 1) They forgot to paint my headlight rings and gas tank door. he took them off the car, so he had them 6 months. I reminded him many, many times, before and after the paintjob, but he still didnt do it. I left them with him for 3 weeks after I picked the car up because each week he promised to paint them, and didnt. For a week he insisted they were in primer and ready to go. I gave him a week after stating that and I finally went by unannounced and picked them up. They werent even sanded, let alone primered. 1 of many lies caught. Good luck for me to match them to the car now because he has NO paint cans left over so I can be sure of code/paint brand used. 2) It was in our contract that he was to remove all glass for paintjob, reinstall all glass and all new seals, felts, fuzzies, etc.. I bought all new glass and rubbers for him. He hired a glass company to help him install it all, cost me additional $400. Shame on me, I agreed before it happened thinking I would be done perfect that way. Glass leaks, no sealant used, trim half ass inserted, rubber is incorrectly installed on much of windshields, and they left all tape and stickers on the glass Pretty unprofessional 3) (In contract) - Rust treat and repair inside of doors and be sure of drain holes, etc.. Pics speak for themselves. Passenger door had 1/4" water staning in the bottom of door 3 days after they washed it I finally noticed it. WTF? 4) When we loaded the car on the trailer we swiped the front slightly against the trailer, mostly my fault but will be unseen when bumper and lights installed. However it revealed flaky paint over rust that will peal right off. The car wasnt that rusty on the body that I saw when old paint sanded off, but who knows where else there is rust painted over. 5) BAD job aligning passenger side door, now paint has rubbed off fender and door. I didnt know this when I got the car because he LOST the door strikers when painting it, installed the new door seals and used ratchet straps to hold doors shut. So I had to crawl thru the trunk for several days to get in and out so the glue on the seals could dry. When I removed straps and opended door, that happened immediately. 6) (In contract) Seam seal the drip rail before painting. He has ENSURED me even today they did and got mad when I said they didnt. You can see some old sealer still in there, NO new sealer, and rust appearing already. 7) Ran out of paint and didnt complete paint underneath trunk lid, said bring back for final touchup and I will paint some more. 8) (In contract) Install new gas tank, straps with rubber, and sending unit. He installed tank. When got home noticed there was NO sending unit and no rubber on the straps. He lost them to, finally found then a week after I got car home. Hell they didnt even get the tank aligned correctly. 9) (In contract) shave hood ornament. They welded metal in, supposed fiberglassed it, then painted. Already cracking where that was done. 10) Pass side vent window is nearly falling out of door, when open vent there is glass shards everywhere. There was brand new glass used, new rubber used also. Remember I paid $400 for the glass company to do this that wasnt part of original plan. 11) Chrysler cool vanilla was to be used on the roof. He tried to talk me into "GM White" and mentioned he had some he could show me. You make the call but me, colormatch, and my friends all agree I do NOT have cool vanilla on my roof. Pics not great 12) the "lip" of the hood isnt painted. When the hood is shut, you can easily see that its not painted. 13) Fender patch panel was replaced. Paint is already cracking where it was welded and filler used. 14) Bubbles in paint on rear fender well 15) (In contract) Repair hood lip. They welded new metal in and used fiberglass to smooth and shape it. Its already cracking where that was done. I could continue with little things all day. I was willing to overlook some things, I didnt ask or pay for show quality, but he promised it either way. He said he way underbid the job and told me when I picked it up it should have cost me twice what I paid for it. I disagree 100%. I have talked to him, he is a nice guy. However I have arranged for him to come to the house twice to look the car over and get a plan. He has no showed me twice. We planned for a week to meet Sunday, 2 days ago. Even sunday morning he was texting me that he would be there. At 4PM he said I am eating and will call when on the way. He NEVER showed, and I havent heard from him since then, no sorry, no nothing. He already lost money on the car probably, he has no paint left over, what motivation would he have to invest a lot of labor and more expensive paint to fix all this, correctly? And honestly the way some things were done, I dont know if I want him to do it anyway, it will likely be a half assed bandaid fix, as cheap and quick as he can. I left the car there 6 months (5 longer than agreed upon, and I dont intend on leaving it again.
