Oh no, not more problems. What have they done? Is this the garage that damaged the car while it was there?

I have an axe you can borrow if you want to talk to the managing director...

Hahaha!

Well they have done such an awful job of the repair it is unbelievable, there is fish eyes in the paint, covered in severe orange peel, pretty sure the door isn't flat but hard to tell with their awful paint job. There are pin holes in the paint too.
To too it of the bumper is now covered in lots of matt areas from laquer overspray, somehow the passenger skirt is caked in laquer overspray, and then there is just generally overspray all over the rest of the panels, not so noticeable to the eye but they feel like sandpaper.

Found even more problems when cleaning it today too.
The passenger side sill has been used to jack up on so it is damaged. One of the exhaust brackets has been broken off and someone decided to put a metal band around to hold it in place which didn't really work. Pretty sure it's not been like that before as the metal band was shiny and clean, indicating it has been done recently.

Remind me not to ask you for garage recommendations. :rofl:

Quiet, ain't it!

Anyone going to the Hebden Vintage Car Show thing in (unsurprisingly) Hebden Bridge in August?

(Pulls brim of hat down over eyes and reverts to watching the tumbleweed rolling by>
