Well there are a number of other panel beaters around that will repair the poor work ..

Don't let it drag on get it sorted ASAP if you decide to go back to them ...
If you let it drag on they will be less lightly to help ..

All you can do after that is anyone who asks tell them about your experience ...
Let them know how unhappy you were with the service you got ...
Let them decide whether to deal with them or not from there ...
Honesty is the best policy ...

Although some people might consider that to be childish ...
However it is you that is out of pocket so I would say it would be justified ...

I have got a price to fix it and i am considering going to the small claims court
They will not be going near my car again
And anyone who asks about them will be told the truth its not childish business runs on word of mouth you fuck someone over you suffer when they tell people about it, they have loads of pics of my car on their internet ads for their business so i might make a few comments on the ads

On a positive note ... It can be repaired ...

It would be a whole pile worse if you were left with a car to scrap

Don't know if you're in or near Dublin but might be worth popping over to Cars and Coffee this Sunday morning if you are?

Re: 2000 gt wide arch kit build 3 Years ago Karma: 40
Right lads have a bit of a problem and need some help please
at the start of this project i should have cut the original arches on the rear for clearance of the wheels but did not know this, now i am stuck with the rear wheels rubbing, i have stock shocks and springs on the rear but any dip in the road the rear end rubs so i dont want to cut the arch now as i was told it is double skinned which will require welding, im not sure how much can be cut before i hit the seem welded area either so i was thinking of rolling the arches
Any info or tips would be of great help cheers

Takeshi's castle mechanics by braille..
Tools required - a Tool.. with 14 pound lump hammer, persuader bar and optional head gear.

Looks like it turned out as smooth as rubbing a 1kg bag of dry roasted peanuts

@dmac - car is class and turned out great, a credit to the work gone into it
Hope you find a solution to the arches (without hammer), failing that I could straight swap you a set of 14" original alloys ?? leave it with you for consideration

That they do spla

right update time yesterday spent the whole day putting on the trd exhaust, sub frame was taken down to fit it the middle section on, very happy with the sound of the exhaust
Rear arches were also rolled to see if it would stop the rubbing roads were so bad last night after working on the car i could not test it to find out
