Title: just got my car back from "the shop"
Post by: small_all@hotmail.com on 00:03, Fri 06 February 2009
just had my car delivered from the garage and quite shock, the boys have slacked a little, side skirts don't sit flush with front quarter skirts, the passenger door doesn't close properly and for reasons that i cant explain (it would take a while) they didn't put any of the trimmings lights bits like that back, and because i didn't take them out im not sure how they all go back, so u might see a lot of posts up on hear about what might seem to be quite simple things  :oops:  eeeerrrrrrrr its gunna be missions :(

hope u all wont mind

Thats wrong, if they took it off they should've put it back. And a door that doesn't shut properly...
Does it just not line up with the pin or is it hitting the body ay the top or bottom?

his phones bin turned off all day. and hes moved unit cos he got evicted cos his land lord had a stroke and sold up the land, ill give him a few days, benefit of the doubt and all that and then start talking to people, but its not like hes done a bad job spray wise, just hasn't finished the job :( and i feel like im never gunna get it back on the road.

Post by: bazr5gtt on 20:38, Fri 06 February 2009

Did you pay him? i wouldn't have given him a penny until all the faults were sorted, money talks...
Title:
Post by: small_all@hotmail.com on 22:12, Fri 06 February 2009
i got to know him quite well as a mate, and he seemed to be going out of his way to do things, sorting bits making an effort, proper safe, but then in the last 2 weeks he just became a twat, even my missus noticed it, i gave him the money, when he dropped the car off because i see him as a mate it was also dark and cold, but now hes just blanking calls and text and being a complete cock, i don't mind if he dosent want to finish the job or what ever, its just the fact hes completely switched from some one safe to a complete shity bastard. Thanks for the offer to help, and i would apriticate it tenby05 (or pete) offered to help, but i do feel rude, having people come to help me, and waste there time fixing my problems, im sure i can figure it out myself (with maby a little help from u the collective) still well vexd though :(

Title:
Post by: small_all@hotmail.com on 17:32, Sat 07 February 2009
:oops:  800, it was gonna be a grand, but he said cos he had it so long he would drop the price, he seemed like he was doing a good job all the way, and putting the effort in, and then in the last 2 weeks just thought sod this i cant be arsed any more, me and the misses was just saying though, instead of worrying bout how shit the paint looks, just accept that there are some proper shistey cunts out there, replace all the bits he broke with new ones, get it mechanically sound and all, and then take it to a proper body shop and pay them to fix all the cosmetic problems, sayin that though, i am gunna go up to his yard tonight see if hes still up there or got any equipment i can reclaim my losses with  :oops:

What a mess, no offence it's not your fault.

What is the finish of the paint like on the car? It doesn't really matter about the inside because thats all going to be hidden anyway.

If the finish is ok then just clean up the trim and refit it, give the wheels a fresh lick of paint and already it will look much better. What problem are you having with the door? I can help i have changed a few.

That guy has really fucked you over!

Post by: small_all@hotmail.com on 14:35, Sun 08 February 2009
yeh me and my bird have been looking over it, and the paint its self isn't that bad, there are loads of little bits i didn't take pictures of, but those are the major ones, but most of it is just the way its been put back together,

haven't got a clue whats wrong with he door, they were both sagging before quite bad, i brought new drop pins and the kid put them in, the drivers door closes perfect, but the passenger door just doesn't shut past a certain point, i cleaned the paint out the lock, had a look at the hinge and there doesn't seem to be a problem, any ideas ???


safe

Post by: r5gtt08 on 14:57, Sun 08 February 2009
:o  :shock:  bloody hell m8 if that was me in your situation he would not be painting no more cars coz his hands would be missing  :!:

i feel sorry for you after spending that kinda money aswell

with any look and everyones help on here i am sure it will be back together in no time

cant beleive the overspray on the wheels you do know they are worth a pretty penny ( mine stand me 350 that was buying them/painting them/and 4 new tyres)

keep us posted on your proggress  :wink:

safe


Is it the lock that's stopping the door from closing? Try adjusting the pin on the body of the car if it is. It's just a case of loosening it and moving it around then re-tightening it.

Give them a good wiping over with some soapy water. I'm sure overspray isn't going to bond very well to fabric.

Or maybe i'm wrong, but it's worth a shot it isn't going to cost you anything.

i spoke to the boy and told him i would kick the shit outa him and steel all his tools if he dident sort it out, he said he would drop the bits back down some time this week and when he gets a unit / place to spray hes going to hopefully sort all the bits that he managed to mess up,  so fingers crossed :)

Post by: small_all@hotmail.com on 22:40, Sun 15 February 2009
hes not pro sprayer, he works for the RAC and dose it out a garage on the side, its my own fault for trying to get it on the cheap, ive got (most) my bits back and its a bit of a mission to try and get in contact (although i have just seen him down a cruz)

tenby05 came over on the week end and let me have a go in his raider, he also made me realize that i was losing out on precious "turbo time" by leaving it on my drive (stripped) waiting to get the factory finish paint job, he also made me realize that the job dosent actually look that bad and at the end of the day its a r5 people wont be noticing the shitty paint job - ill be going to fast.

if i could get the shit bits touched up for cheap it would be cool, but again after driving his just up and down my road got me wet for it, ive started putting it all back together (with help from tenby05)

(sorry for the lengthy bit)

he also said that if i get it running and working i can drive it while i save up for the paint job, and the sprayer should do a good job of taking it all out and putting it back

the guy i have asked to spray my car again has a good portfolio and a few people have recommended

cant wait :)

Ive been in the trade for a long time now and its pricks like that who give us all a bad name, over spray on everything thats a proper school boy error how hard is it to throw a bit of sheet over said items. The thing it comes down to though is if you pay someone 800 nicker for a full re-paint your not going to get much of a job, your looking at the best part of 500 nicker in materials and thats not even using good paint. Dont worrie about the runs, if he has put 2 or more coats on you can flat them out a piece of piss, and the back of the bonnet you could piss with an arsehole can providing you prep it and mask it proper. Whats the finish like, is it peeley, if so give it a little tickle with some 1500-2000 and mop it up. As long as everything is covered its not to hard to put right unless there are proper big bits of shit in the paint. If you need any tips or what ever give me a shout.
Title:
Post by: small_all@hotmail.com on 17:51, Tue 17 February 2009
the paint needs to harden a little bit, and i think he put a few coats on so i could flat back   :)  but i just wanna get it on the road specially before the summer comes round, the smell of petes raider (engine/cockpit) just reminded me of last year, windows down music at a reasonable level blasting round the streets in the sun loving every second of it and feeling good 8)  just gota learn from my mistakes take it on the chin and get on with shit - although i might see about getting some money back but ill wait till the boy moves into his new unit and hes got all his tools and things in :twisted:
Title:
Post by: rs250nut on 18:48, Tue 17 February 2009
Bollocks waiting for it to harden, it will be a proper bitch to polish if you leave it to long. Was it not baked off?

Post by: small_all@hotmail.com on 19:22, Tue 17 February 2009
pete asked me the same thing, and na, just a heat burner, and it was done the same week we had the snow so it was cold as a polar bears arse i dunno what to do then, at the momet its not secure because only the passenger side of the car has glass in, this week ends im gonna try get the windscreen put back in and the rest of the glass, and then leave it out in the sun to try and harden, dunno what else to do relay, as this is my first experience with paint (on cars)

Hey mate just thought I would add me 2 pence to this.

I know the garage your on about that Austins in Canton.  He is a complete wanker.
A few people i know havegone to him after he did the skyline, the skyline was my mate Bens and has been the only car to come out of the garage right.
What you wont of heard is that it took them 18 months to do all thebodywork to the liner !!!

One of the boys went in for a spray job and came back with the car covered in glass as someone had broke in - austin replaced the glass but dnied that the car got broken into.

I know probably most of the people in Cardiff in the modifying scene, one of the best garages I know is by Radyr train station
Title: Re: just got my car back from "the shop"
Post by: small_all@hotmail.com on 12:39, Sun 28 March 2010
its a funny story - i brought my mates raider of him becasue he needed the chas quick time, and then a few monehts later he offerd to by my phase 2 of me, so we have eneded up swapping cars,

theres a guy in llandaff thats got a good reputation, he did a skyline that was on the front of fast car/max power a while ago, so when my hours / money pick up in the summer im gunna take the raider there to maby get a new lick of paint, but  im open to ideas, and shopping about, the guy in llandaff said it would be around 2500 for a complete strip down and thats with what ever rust is there to be sorted as well,

but liek most places he said it would be cheaper if i did the taking apart and rebuilding, but to be onist, i would prefer to pay a professional fitter - just so the car looks like its rolled out of the factory

 :P
