: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!

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 ???

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.
