Not my car but it's been posted on a bunch of my other forums and I think the X-S community might get a kick out of this.... the pictures explain it all.

Wow. Just. Wow.

I read this post during a physics lecture and I actually said "holy fuck" loud enough to catch the attention of everyone around me.

Who then proceeded to laugh their ass off at what was apparently done by a blind mechanic.

He was supposed to use double stick tape and rivets underneath, not sheetrock screws. haha. What an idiot. The guy who owned the shop thought that was passable(quality wise)?

I would like to know how this guy's shop is still open and how he hasn't been murdered yet?

That is bullshit, I would've flipped my fucking lid whenever I saw it finished!

No shit, If I was the installer and did that type of work I would probably blow my own brains out for being so worthless and holding guilt of fucking someones car up

I can speak from experience that fiberglass body kits are a pain in the arse to work with, but on that note there is no excuse for work like this. I work in my 2 car garage on projects like this one and would never allow any thing to look this way. Never paint this kind of stuff on a car never your just asking for paint problems. Fit, Trim, Prep, Prime, Seal, Base, Clear. Lots of work but it pays off in the end. Notice how the metallics in the paint do not even look even. Thats what happens when your spraying a gun toward the ground.. blink.gif
