So I took it to the body shop again to fix a minor detail of the paint and they where suppost to just fix a quarter panel cause when I first got the car back there was a paint chip.

I go Friday to pick up cause

They said it was gonna be ready by 5 it turns out they burnt my paint with the buff so they have to redo it and now my door handles are chipped they tried covering it up but obviously they didn't do a good job so here's that until I get the car back Monday or Tuesday

Soo since I didn't have a spare in my car my trunk board kept bending so I decided to get one out of plywood and it turned out pretty well if I may say so myself.

so i know theres been a delay on this thread but the update is finally here.

so far ive bought an evo x wing , fangs, and ive also gotten those painted but heres the story to the process for all this.

after i picked up my car from the shop ( after they chipped my paint ) i drove it home and i notice the next day theres a buff scuff on my quarter panel so i had to take it back left it there for about a week. ( yes they where working slow because apparently i was begining to get on there bad side ) "cause this is my fault"?? so they call me saying its done me ecstatic as i am to finally have my car back!! i get there and would you believe it they manage to scrape my front right wheel on the curb about half the wheel was curb rashed. :no soo at this point im pretty mad shop guy suggested to either paint the wheel but i didnt want to go that route so we ended up making a deal for him to paint the abs evo x wing i got and fangs yes i still left the parts there even after all this. after about a month they call me yes it took a month and me calling about every week to the point where they would get annoyed. i pick up my "parts" i get there and he says theres the wing my response where are the fangs?? his response ughh what? he apparently lost the fangs somewhere in the shop so i get furious at this point he just tells me he will look for them and paint them also so about 1 week later he says he found them and is going to paint them i call him a week later ( really busy with work ) and he lost them again!!! :realmad: so i just tell him to find them and get them painted! i kept calling everyday until he found them and about 2-3 weeks later he painted them. yes it took about 2 months just to get my evo x wing and fangs fully painted and returned. idk if the shop was doing it on purpose for me having to keep going back or what but its safe to say i dont think im gonna be going back there any time soon.

sorry for the minor rant lol

but here are some pics
