when I collected car the inside was covered in white dust and car matts were filthy with the dust as well also could smell paint in car.i thought this unusual at time as they were doing bumper now I relise must have had door open spraying rear panel and door shut edge.

Hi there,

I know that that specific aint is supposed to be difficult to do. If I had the experience that you had, I would find another shop to do it. One that has definitely had experience with it, and comes recommended. (I unfortunately can't recommend any, am in Germany).

If they messed it up once, they prob won't do the best job even at their best.

Good luck!

Ben

From your description it sounds like the damage was to the rear quarter is that right? The only way to get it to blend properly is to repaint the whole side. I had a dent there & the bodyshop I went to (the dealers) took 3 attempts before they would return it to me because they were unhappy with the results. I've had plenty of people look at the car & nobody can see the "join".
