There is too much left to chance and secondary legal problems that could pop up. Nice thought though.
Well i totally understand what you are saying..... But with the sh|ty job they did the first time around ie: not removing any trim (standard) not masking the inner fenders and a real bad blend job The whole car is going to be stripped and gone over all trim cladding and moldings..
A 2 hour lunch meeting with the rep who authorized almost 5000.00 canadian for paint was not to happy looking at the job. ie:bad blends orange peel and dirt in the paint not to mention thin way thin on the clear so thin in spots its just paint. If Carstar doesn't want to paint it the way it should have been painted the first well second time around they will get the bill from my painter...
I have taken the car to several paintshops for estimates and every painter who looked at it says the same thing "If we turned out jobs like that we would be out of business" even the painter at my dealership noticed they didnt even remove the mirrors.
So i have been told to send it back to GM for a second attempt at making the car somewhat presentable. this meeting with the GM rep was the second week of January I have yet to hear from CarStar.
And 5000.00 to repaint a new car is crazy since my painters estimate came in around 4000.00 with a color change to that Caddy Metallic Orange thats everything including the trunk floor
