Thumbs down Quality of Panel Beaters Work

A few months ago, some woman ran up the arse of my car..
(that poor car has some luck, doesn't it).

Anyway, it cracked the paint on the bumper, and cracked the skirt.

I decided to take it to my friendly, Trusted panel shop (who is a friend of the family).

Maybe I am just being picky, even though I am trading this car in, I would still like to see these items repaired so the next owner has a car in great condition....

Anyway, check out the quality (or lack of) on these repairs to my rear bar & skirt.

(I have tried to keep these images small as possible - sorry if they are too big to donwload for the modem users ...

Struth, you look pretty hard, especially for the cracks around the tailpipe! Next time I get my car re-sprayed, you just come on over, and go over it. I'll give you a beer! :D

Mate I would definatly take it back even though you are trading it in. If I let somehting leave our workshop like that I would get my arse kicked big time.

Even though it sounds like you didn't have to pay for it they still got payed for doing the job so it should of been done properly.
