im glad you see where i am coming from, although i hate to use the word ignorance, but it really is the best for the case. Not knowing is one thing that makes a service job very hard to do. They expect a paint job to consist of everything for a bare minimum price, but there is a point where we are not making money, paying the bills, that sort of thing. Do i think he should have let you know he wasn't going to finish it out, ab-so-freaking-lutely. Do i think he ****ed you over, no. Just miss informed you of what he was going to do, and that is not acceptable (at least for some... ie R&JHRS)

Pictures - Before and After

Bad Orange Peel aka Rhino Lining

The hood (keep in mind that these are PhotoBucket pics and the original files looked 10X worse, and in person it was 20X worse)


Now the After pictures.
After wet sanding 80% of the truck myself with 1500 grit sandpaper and a sanding block then paying a high end detail shop $325 to wet sand the other 20% and having them buff the whole truck out with a collision grade rubbing compound it looks nice. I think they said it was a 4 stage process.

Now I'm not embarrassed to be seen in public with my truck and I'm not getting the questions like who the f*** painted your truck dude?
And just to the clear up the whole "you get what you pay for" BS, I paid $2100 + a nice red 2001 ARE topper for the "less than par paint job"

yea, for that price, you should have had the cut and buff. Whatever, its in the past, your truck looks great (now) and now we all know where not to go for a "Cheap" paint job.

Yeah, you're right it's in the past ... let bygones be bygones but I think we all know where NOT to go for a "Cheap" paint job, even people that aren't on this forum ... lol

This **** makes you laugh? What exactly is so funny about it? You didn't think it was funny when you seen it in person. (Or were you laughing inside?)

i would certainly like to sometime before I die, and i've talked to a few others that are interested, btu again the hardest part is getting anyone actually out.

personally I'd prefer a friday or sunday afternoon but i know sometimes saturdays are better for this kind of thing...

its a gibson. had one on a 3.0 and i really liked it, so I finally picked another one up. probably wanting to either come out before the tire or after in factory location or straight out the back. i'd dump it but I also got a polished tip with the muffler so i'll probably use it too.
