Hey Everyone,

The bodyshop that just worked on my car has made a mess of some of my finish - and if I go back to them a THIRD time to fix things, I'm sure they're going to mess it up some more (such has been the trend).

A little green dot of overspray that I could've lived with has been turned into some nasty power-buffer scratches and a dull patch of what used to be clearcoat - I am SO PISSED right now.

I plan to show it to them Monday, but at this point would rather go to an excellent detailer. It baffles me why a damn BODYSHOP can't get it right, but I just don't trust them anymore.

Any suggestions?

Thanks a million!

D'oh! (4 hours)

Then again, I'm so damn pissed and really want someone to do something RIGHT, that it may be worth driving 4 hours to get it done. Anything worth seeing out there in Lynchburg to make a road trip out of it? (Pardon my ignorance about Virginia, I'm from Florida...)

Thanks in advance for any suggestions...

There is a guy we have used in Arlington and DC 3 times now on 3 cars. He's done paintless dent removal for us and we have been very pleased with his work. I assume he also does detail work. I PM'd you his name and contact info.

If he doesn't do the work you are looking for I also have a friend who bought a used M3 with some bad paint issues from FL. He found a highly recommended detailer who wasn't cheap but he did great work for him in Arlington, saved him from having to get a new paint job. Let me know if you'd like me to get his contact info for you.
