Ok, This is a PRIME example of the way I got treated on R/F
Why should any of my post be deleted?
FYI ... I'm the victim here not the victimizer. After what the painter done to me I'm not sure where fair and unfair comes into this equation.

I think you should have just shut your mouth about it, kept the original question in and left the personal feelings out of it. You had to keep it going and throw names out and on top of that you left ALOT of details out about it

One member posting a different opinion is not a PRIME example of the way you got treated on another forum. None of your posts have been deleted or modified in any way. None of the posts arguing the other side you have been deleted or modified in any way.

Stop bashing the dude, he hasn't thrown out names. There's nothing wrong with stating how he feels about the paint job.

And a lot of the members even took up for him even after seeing the kind of work that he done.(talk about adding insult to injury)
I'm definitely going to close my account over there and become a contributor over here.
I really appreciate

I was afraid to actually put his name on here after how quick my post got deleted. My thread got locked very fast too then I asked one of the Mods over there why the thread got locked so fast, because I didn't even mention his name in the "How to repair Orange peel" post
And his resposne was that we had to close it because we were getting too many complaints. I was like "WTF?"

Honestly, It just pissed me off to see brian screwed and everyone take the painters side (on the 'other site'). At the end of the day, the painter and brain made a deal. Weither or not it was a cheap price shouldnt matter. I guess its just me but If I had done the work, I would want to be proud of the work I had done. There would be no way I could let a car leave looking like that.
Thanks for your support Chris ... I'm glad to see someone from the other site come on here and stand in my corner.
It's kinda ironic how you mentioned being proud of the work you do, because that's exactly what the painter kept telling me and that's why I got him to to do the job because he kept stressing to me how he takes pride in his work, how he doesn't ever cut corners, how he doesn't want a crappy job leaving his shop and how the it's the small little details that count.

Ok Clinton, I don't know who you are and I don't know what you and the painter have going on but I'm really confused about you taking up for someone that basically vandalized my truck.
And #2 So what if I'm throwing names out ... after what was done to my truck, I think I should throw some names out! If it's just to keep other members from getting ripped by this painter it'll be good enough for me.

I dont see what the point of accusing Clinton and the person you have a beef with of conspiring against has anything to do with your paint job. Be careful not piss of the wrong ppl (thats not a threat buddy, just some friendly advice)

First off, I am going to state again that I do not know either one personally. I am going of what seems to be similar in both stories here.

Seems as if brian contacted john about finnishing his project truck. They talked about what work needed to be done, both seem to agree that painting the truck WAS suppose to happen before the truck was dropped off. They both agreed to a price for whatever work was done including paint. I dont know where the the 250 dollars came into play for the labor for paint only, but both seem to agree that it was ~2500 for the job. Also, both seem to agree that it was NOT paid in full and brian still owes 250 dollars to john (dunno if brian paid 2500 and still owes 250 or what).


Both members were in the wrong at some point in the transaction. Brian should have looked over the truck better when he picked it up, also he does owe john 250 dollars from the original agreed price. I believe Brian doesnt want to pay for it becuase of the current situation. John should have said from the begining that it will take at least X about of time. Also, John should have made a list of the 'extra work' that needed to be done and charged Brian for it and said it will take extra time for the repairs.

At the end of the day, they both made an agreement for work done. The work should have been done professionally done no matter what the cost was. Clearly, Brian was not happy with the work done which is why he is stating his opinions on the site.


with that being said, I hope this can be fixed. The ranger community is an awesome community. You don't hear about people getting ripped off hardly ever, which is great! In the past 2 years Ive had many different platforms, therefore, I was on several different forums. Everyday in the mr2 and srt community, you see negitive feedback threads about different members. You dont see the same on here.

x2 on that man

and also you have to stop accusing people of shit
okay yes ur angry, yes others are angry and yes people will take sides and theres nothing wrong with that.

i dont know what the other side of the story is but i do think that the paint job is completely unacceptable no matter what.

and umm this is sorta getting outta hand but theres no reason to mod or delete (which hasnt happend) cuz were free to say whatever we want but u should still be careful

I think if you were to say anything about a member here on work it should be done properly in the member review section, and the whole truth should be put out there. By bashing his work with half truths, knowing this was already stopped on another forum, on here it is called provoking drama. Now I am creating drama just to point out the fact that this thread should have been about advice on fixing the problem and not talking bad about the other member because you know he IS in fact a member here. You were shut down on R/F with this and I dont think you need to drag it over here. Keep the question about the orange peel fixing and leave it at that.

I had nothing against you or john about this or take sides, BUT if you are going to complain and say someone did a bad job, I think the members deserve to hear the truth before passing judgement and the accused doesnt deserve a one sided bashing.

LOL at me not posting in this thread again.

It depends on if its the clear or base coat. If its the base, then you gotta repaint the truck. But if its in the clear, you need to sand/polish/buff

i guess wet sand or polish the clear to determine if thats the issue, if not I guess the paint is going to have to be done from scratch

Ok, Andy I'm cool with that ... At this point, I REALLY just want some advise on how to fix this mess.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but so far I'm hearing that best case scenerio I need to sand down the clear coat and have the truck buffed out. (Wouldn't I need to add more clear if I taking it off?)
And then the worst case scerio would be to just strip all the paint off and start all over again.
I'll be going to 3 different body shops on Monday to find out what has to be done. If it's gonna be over $500 to fix this then I'm going to file a claim. I really hope that it's going be under $500 and the Orange Peel is from the clear coat. *fingers crossed*

It depends how much clear coat it has, if it has the 4 coats as you have stated then if youi buff it evenly then it should come out good (as long as long its the clear coat that needs work), if the problem is deeper then that, then a body shop might be required.

Ok relax guys, let's not make a pissing match out of this. I'm leaving this open with hope that wvcat will post and him and brian can clear the air a little. If you're just going to bicker it'll get locked.
