GRIMACE

Recommended Posts

recent pic as of yesterday still getting irritated, i think he is just slapping on bondo just to make it lok like he is working on it, and tells me he quit drinking and smoking crack/weed so he can focus on his business, and he says it should be in primer monday, all i know is when i go back on tuesday and if it isn't in primer, i will tow it back home with the remainder of supplies and i will file a lawsuit and seek litigation against him

Good luck gene, stay on him... even If he gets it in primer I'd get it out of there.... hopefully find a real body shop to finish and get the color on....

went to see if an updates done since i was told saturday that grimace would be in primer monday, guess what? nothing done and now the painter has to be moved by august 5th and he was working on 2 more uber mini vans instead of my 521, but he told me he would have in primer tomorrow and then have it painted plum crazy purple by sunday, i told him the primer has to cure b4 laying on the purple paint but with the temperatures hitting triple digits still, it might be ready for paint. i have my doubts of it getting done right b4 he moves. why do i keep getting screwed over by douchebags. i guess i try to see the good in people to much and they tend to take advantage of that and i'm done with that and it makes me not to put trust in anyone from now on and i won't offer help to anyone again

Sorry to say but makes me glad I'm doing my paint myself wether I comes out good or bad... I never understood how people like that could stay in business.... I had my 93 pathfinder finish painted once.... I had shaved the door handles and just needed a repaint..... I think he spend a week on my hood fixing acorn dents, and then tried to charge me for what I never asked him to do.... I feel they take advantage just to keep the money flowing... stay firm on what your gonna pay and strong arm that bastard into finishing.... karma will get him....

Goodluck gene.... get grimace home...

well sad news to report, truck did not get finished to even be ready for primer, was suppose to be working on it early on friday morning but painter never showed up until after 10am, i got there to my surprise, my truck was out of paint booth again and another car was in booth and then he could not find keys to it so he could move it after washing it down and spent an hour looking for the keys to find out the other guy had them and he was on a parts run, so we continued to lay on some filler and sand it down but he was talking on phone a lot instead of working to get my truck in primer and the landlord said he had to get everything out by 5pm and i was getting frustrated cuz i needed to get my truck done by 4pm so i could take home. landlord told me i better get it out cuz he was changing locks and i might not ever get my truck back. i'm so irritated at assholes who earn my trust only to screw me over and i am out $2600. im so tempted to beat his ass, but then where will that get me, in jail for assault an battery. karma will arrived at his door step and soon

i'm so irritated and i'm kinda at a point just to sell everything and become a hermit and what really pisses me off is that i served in iraq 3 times for assholes like him so they can have freedoms to continue to screw others over
