  • Stus corsa vxr ruined!

    As the title says. Im bloody angry.
    On thursday the car was left parked at the bosses house for the whole day till i picked it up at night. Drove it home after a very hard days work so didnt really look at the car. seen a few white specks at the boot handle but as usual i thought it was either dust or birds. ....
    My work mate phoned me up later that night saying to check my car.....Those white specks werent the only 1's. And it wasnt dust....THE WHOLE ARDEN VXR WAS COVERED IN HUNDREDS OF WHITE SPECKS OF PAINT.
    We found out the house next to the bosses had been getting painted WHITE so all the spray from that has come across and landed all over our 2.
    Then. Against my wishes. Whilst the car was parked up yesterday near the bosses, and i quote "not at the bosses so we didnt get any more paint on the cars" , the guy attemped to remove the paint but god knows wat he used. He told me he used pure soap. and tryed to wash it off. Its covered in scratches....AND PAINT. But its also covered in what ever chemical he used. I mean. ITS PLASTERED.
    Police response......"its a civil matter , sorry"

    So not only am i very angry but my car is ruined. Im lost with what to do. We have his full details and he says he has public liability insurance and he'll call us monday morning after speaking with them.
    Aaaahhh

            I would get a body work expert (detailer) and see what they think of it, back up go get a qoute for a full re-spray and hand him the bill!

                  Threatening behaviour will do nothing mate!

                  Just be profesional about it, Get a Detailer to look at it see if it can be corrected if not then go to a body shop of your choice and get a qoute for a full respray.

                  Then give him the bill

                      You need to ask the guy if he has public liability insurance, if so tell him you want to claim on it, no big deal for him as he pays the excess, he has obviously accepted responsibility as he has tried to clean it off, Claim off his insurance as he should not be working without it.

                        As BBB said, PLI is the way to go, get a couple of quotes for a respray and ask his insurers to process/

                            Just thought Stu....do you have some pics for us? I'd be so bloody mad and upset if I came back and saw my pride and joy like that. It's just not fair at all.

                              Spot on Nath, gotta be as calm as possible with him in order to sort it all out, not easy though!
