Default Iowa Car Craft : painter Avoid...

Here is my thread:
http://www.jdmcity.com/showthread.php?t=18804

I took it to Xclusive, and he said it would need to be re-done. Hell the Primer is breaking thru the paint , and the clear coat is still tacky! one week after paint was finshed..

"Joe" From car craft, whom painted it, said this was normal.. we all know its not normal to be THIS soft.. He claimed the EPA is shutting his shop down ETC.. more excuses. He still hold he can wetsand and buff out. But I, nor does Tre think its possible.

We agreed on 300 to paint this part and i EMPHASIZED quality..
this is what i got, runs and sags.. he agreed to knock a 100 off.
I paid 200$ for this kind of "quality"..After talking to a few paint shops, including Tre, im am conviced it needs to be re-done.
I asked he (Joe) return 150 ( id eat 50 for his materials) but he told me he would only give me 50.

He blamed it on "bad body work" but, the funny story is, the part where his mistakes are, are on a 100% stock part, thats not been touched..

he had been working with me, as in he was goin to try and buff thing out, but now, he said i have to wait as the EPA is tryin to shut him down.. seems like a lame excuse to me.. Ill post all the back and forth thru TXT messaging.

Im going to talk to my attorney friend about getting my cash back from him.

I would stay away from this shop at all costs.... you get what you pay for, but no here, you get less. considering Exclusive will fix/redo for around the same price..

he still wants to make it "right" but im really just done with it. shouldnt have left his shop like that..

Damn that sucks, he used to be a lowrider friend of mine. I've been hearing a lot of bad about him, that's too bad dude, sorry to hear that.

His work is garbage.. one of my buddys had his GTO painted by them and it was pretty bad.. the hood was cloudy and runs/sags were all over... Pretty sad...
