You can't expect everyone to have the same dedication as you
There are problems with this job.
I call this one a 'draw'.
How fucking hard is this when it's your job?
Now that it's clean, when I look at the pan, it's really easy to tell where the paint didn't go on right - there are flat/rough spots in the paint. I'd say that about half of it is glossy/smooth and the rest of it has the texture of bed liner...which isn't right.
In the end, I wish I'd just taken 3 days off of work and painted this thing myself. There's no way I could have done a worse job.
And to do it right, I will have to sand half of it down and do it myself anyway.
I'm going to contact the body shop tomorrow and see if we can work something out to get this corrected. I'm not terribly happy with what I paid vs. what they delivered now that it's cleaned off.
I'm becoming convinced that this car is 100% jinxed and that's why it's yet to go back together. If I wasn't already into this car for WAY more than I'll ever get out of it, I'd just fucking scrap it and save myself the hassle and expense. Something tells me that this isn't the last problem I'm going to have with this car.
My expectations were not high - I dropped off a bare metal floor pan that needed to be rinsed off and painted and the shop had two weeks to do the work. Seems like it was half done at best and I fucking hate cleaning up after people I've hired to do a specific job.
What an expensive fucking disappointment...
