HATEFUL, BITTER, UNHAPPY Customer.. The owner should be ashamed of himself....making promises to perform quality work and stand behind it. Met with owner to obtain quote on color that we wanted, he stated that he could apply it and would stand behind it, after getting the "warm fuzzies" from his BULLS*** storyline that he fed us, we agreed to let him do the job and delivered our vehicle to him. The car was delivered READY TO PAINT....all body work was completed - the job should have been a walk in the park. It wasn't for him. It took forever for him to paint in (the first time) and when we went to look at it there was crap in the paint and there was NO WAY we were going to settle for that after putting approx $80k into this car for show. He attempted to repaint it and did....still issues..AND, due to the prep guy not taping off properly, there was overspray on areas of the car's inside that we pointed out on the first inspection and that he promised would be cleaned up - THEY WEREN'T! In an attempt to respray is either the 2nd of 3rd time the shop talked us into clear coating the floor to further protect it (or course at addtional cost to us) - after contemplating it we agreed but after seeing it it was super shiny and stood out and did not mesh with the theme we had going for the car. The car still was not painted correctly on the exterior, overspray issues were not addressed, etc. The owner, Anthony, should have "saved face" and admitted that he was not going to be able to apply the type of paint/finish that we wanted but NO, we had to make a decision that we totally didn't want to do but felt pushed into because, at this point, the shop now had approx $4,000 of our money and we still did not have a quality paint job and issues that still were not fixed. We settled for another "factory' type color, got paint on that vehicle and got it the hell back home.....knowing there were still issues but NOT willing to risk any more damage/issues to the car and money out of pocket that we already had NOT planned on spending. Did i mention the original quote was $1600 prior to dropping it off and then $1800 when we dropped it off??? Yeah....nickle and dimed us and suckered us in. After getting the car home, waiting for a few more days for the paint to set up we really started looking over it and cleaning it up and notice ALL sort of SH** wrong......like a nice dirty, greasy hand print on the interior floor of the car totally clear-coated over!! Still lots of overspray - most of which was supposed to be taken care of after the first spray. The hood had lint particles throughout, there was a dent in the roof - like someone lost their balance and fell into it, wavy-ness in the doors and down the sides of the car. We were also told that the car was being blocked down prior to next spray and when we started tap out some bolt holes realized that the paint is so thick there is NO WAY any blocking down of the car took place!! 6 layers thick!! We are out $4000+ dollars and still don't have a decent enough paint job to take it to the shows and/or sell it and recoop money. Vegas, a town built on Customer Service and we have this CLOWN ruining it and giving anything but. OH, he did offer to fix it and repaint it after we tried to dispute the charges on our credit card. REALLY???? REALLY???? You didn't get it right the first 6 times and you want us to bring it back to you so you can F*** it up some more? Sorry, we don't have the money or the time or the energy to risk it. Moving on, lesson learned. Learn from our mistake, avoid this shop like the plaque because literally, it will make you sick to your stomach to have to deal with this crap!!
Got screwed by one eyed Anthony. This place tried to paint my Hot Rod and jacked it up bad. One eyed Anthony made many promises but delivered on none of them. Take the warnings posted here, stay away from this place and you will be much better off. A friend of mine(?) makes fun of me because I let a one eyed man paint my car.
THE WORST BODY SHOP EVER, SLOPPY, LEAVE SCRATCHES ALL OVER. I TOOK MY 2011 GRAND CHEROKEE BRAND NEW TO INSTALL RUNNING BOARD AND THE WORST BODY SHOP EVER THERE ARE SLOPPY, THEY LEFT SCRATCHES ON THE VEHICLE THEY CAN'T EVEN ASSEMBLE RUNNING BOARD. DON'T TAKE YOUR VEHICLE TO THEM OR YOU WELL BE SORRY.
This place is a joke! Please read review.. I had a car paint (or messed up) by this shop and here are the facts. The vehicle has $76,000.00 in parts and 750 hours of my time to get to the paint stage. Just paint is all it needed the body was sprayed in surfacer, block sanded along with epoxy primer and sealed for paint. Anthony and Hector came to my house and looked the car over and said they would love to paint it. He called me up a few days later and gave me a quote of $1600.00 to spray the vehicle in the color and finish I wanted, which was a Dark Grey Matte finish. The car was completely disassembled; hood, trunk lid, doors and front fenders were separated from shell. The frame and interior of the vehicle were already finish painted and I expressed my concern that the not get over spray on it. I delivered it to him on 4/19/10 and the price when dropped of changed to $1800.00. Two weeks later ha called and said the car was done. So I went to his shop and the paint finish had so much dirt in it he said he would respray the car since I was not happy. He then recommended a Matte clear coat and said this would make the finish easier to spray and would hide some of the imperfections. At a cost of $1200.00 more dollars I was good with if it would look better and last longer. 2 months later after trying many times to get the finish right he talked me into a base/clear paint job at a additional $900.00 and said it would be a really nice job when done. I went to pick up the car on 7/19/10 it looked all polished and shiny with a few spots he said he would fix after I got the car together. The over spray on the frame and interior that I asked them to fix was still not done but I was. I just wanted to get my vehicle out of there. After I got the car home and resprayed the interior and parts of the frame from there over spray I started to assemble the car. As the car dried and the paint cured it started to get a horrible orange peel (dimples) along with a few other problems. I then in Sept disputed the paintwork through my Visa. After many months of waiting (now 1/24/10) I just got charged back the $ 4060.00 dollars that Anthony wanted for the crap job I got. He asked why I didn’t call him and take the car back to him and I stated I did not trust him to not get over spray on all the parts I currently had installed (almost a completed car but trim and glass). So if you want you car painted I would think twice before using this shop. I am not going to fix the paint I am gong to finish the car and take it to every car show I can so people can see the crap this guy turns out.
