Yup. I spoke with another shop. I guess for that much rework, I am looking at ~$5,000. They said I can try for small claims court, but those usually get dragged out a lot and just become a headache. Especially with these types of things because you have to submit photos, videos, written documents, etc.

You should not and I mean """NOT"" touch a thing on that car

Like I already said, Take it to a Ford Dealer and a couple of quality shops and let them give you a written estimate on what needs to be done to repair the paint on your Mustang. When you do anything , It is just going to hurt you in small claims court. They will say it was fine until you messed it up.
It looks like your whole car will need to be sanded down, Primed and repainted which is going to cost way more then the couple thousand you think it will. The paint flaking off the drivers door is a good sign of how bad the shop is that painted your car.
I have seen better work come out of a high school program then your car is showing.Even Maiko could do a better paint job.
I would have been in court already if they did that to my Mustang.

I have never seen work this terrible before. Holy crap.

One other thing you could try, Kevin, is talking with the shop again and seeing if the threat of small claims court (or going to your local news's investigative reporter) might scare them into at least giving your money back. I doubt they're going to reimburse the cost of remediating all their mistakes without *actually* taking them to court, sadly.

Are you sure it isn't overspray of something the shop used that might come off with a claybar?

On the windshield glass?

I highly doubt the shop managed to sandblast it...there's probably overspray of something on the surface of the glass that might clean off, obviating need for replacement.

The glass is most likely overspray. Razor blade should fix it up. But at this point ole kevster needs to park the car in a rough part of town with the keys in it and let it find its way to Mexico.

Side note, Kevin have you looked at the louvers after all this work? I know in your video you commented on the fact that they were cloudy now but I'm guessing that they did not remove them but painted right over them. If this is the case you have even more problems. As in you would never be able to pull them off because the clear coat would be surrounding it. Also guessing the glass under them is covered in overspray.

So I am no longer going to take any chances with the dumb shop and just want the body repaired. He is some back alley shop (not sure why the dealerships use him?), and has some hick a** insurance. He is only offering to repaint the car (NOT HAPPENING!!!).

So I called my insurance provider to see what my options are (Geico). They offered to open a Claim for me under Comprehensive. The car will be taken to their choosing of body shop (so they can warranty everything). The shop will most likely be Service King. Which it seems they are a big shop here in Texas? Not sure if anyone has opinions on them.

They said I can take it to any shop I want but then Geico couldn't offer any warranty if it was outside their network. They will have the work paid for, just not warrantied.

Their adjuster is going to look over the extent of the damage and approve for Service King to go ahead with the repairs. All I will have to pay is the $500 deductible after everything is said and done. Service King will provide the bill to Geico and they will send the Bill to World of Color and pursue the repayment from them.

They said this most likely won't affect my premium.

What does everything think of going this route? This way, I know the car will actually get repaired through reputable names and no more randoms. And all I pay is $500 (which I can easily live with). Geico lady said they will be sure to inspect ALL the damage incurred by World of Color and repaint the entire car if needed. They will also look at replacing the rear tail light that was scratched from the shop.

Sounds reasonable if your premium doesn't really increase. The dealers probably use the back alley shop because it is the cheapest place in town.

Sounds very good. But don't hold your breath on the premiums not going up the following year.
Good luck!

I cant imagine Service King is a bad shop either because if they were, Geico wouldn't recommend them as their preferred shop.

Service King does pretty good work here in Tennessee. They are the hub for several insurance companies here. Several car rental companies have cars stationed at the shop.

I am just worried with what happens if the shop tries to be unwilling to pay Geico. Does that stay between them? Insurance lady mentioned something about arbitration?

I hope it isn't overkill but I submitted my video to Geico, pictures, the text message confirming what body panels World of Color would work on. I am also waiting for a written statement from a body shop that saw the car after the 1st paint attempt, then again after the 2nd paint attempt.

I want to provide so much evidence that they would without a doubt not give the guy a chance to deny it was his doing.

As you can see, the car was "ok" before the 2nd paint attempt. ALL they had to do was touch up some areas. I DO NOT KNOW how they went out of their way to F*** up the entire car. As you can see, the front passenger fender was scuff free as well as other things.

The first time they did it, they taped the areas off and when the pulled the tape off, it caused the clear coat to peel. Plus, next to the passenger tail light, it was bumpy and not blended well. You cannot tell from far away, but as you get close and see it in person it was BAD.

I took it and got a 2nd opinion from another shop and the owner at he also confirmed it was unacceptable. Now Idk if the unacceptable part was a joke and it was his opinion that the quality of the job was too good for them to do so they wanted to mess it up more or what.

As you can see in the video, it just needs to be sanded completely, prepped, and repainted.


The plan today is to go get a written statement from the 2nd body shop that saw the poor jobs both times. Then tomorrow I will be taking it to the body shop and having Gieco's Adjuster look over it. Then It will be left there for repair.

So after giving it more thought, I decided to cancel doing an insurance claim. Why should I have to pay for their mess up? That is the question that bugged me all day.

So I went the body shop Guns a Blazin. In the end, they are sending it to my nearby dealership to get entirely repainted (my choice, not theirs), they are also making the 1st months payment on my car, and they gave me a rental (at their expense). Unfortunately it is a Hyundai Sonata

Lets just say....I told them I had legal help ready if they wanted to deny anything or say no to paying for it. They WILL NOT be touching the car again. I made it clear to them.

I will be dropping the car off tomorrow at the dealership. Where they will also take care of the popping in the front end.

Sad it had to go this far to begin with. Really saved my a** that I kept the Texts, Pictures, and made the video.


Lets just hope this settles it.
