+1 ^ People like to jump on the trigger too quick and flame the work before contacting the worker to fix the wrongs.
The pieces look good man

I've wrapped over 600+ parts for members on this and other boards and as much as I'd like to say I've NEVER had a problem, there have been issues along the way and I've made every effort to address them; in fact many are now repeat customers, having bought more pieces after I resolved their issues with the first pieces.... What pisses me off is that there was a tiny bit of orange peel when I dropped them off and Peter said he would give them a quick buff and if the peel didn't come off he'd let me know and I would come to his house (almost 40 miles away; each way) to pick up the affected parts and fix.

I've heard nothing from Peter via phone call or email or txt (he has all) and goes and posts a flame publicly before contactng me.... very classy

BMW vs Lexus; class vs classless??? I wonder....

The parts look 7/10 to me, and I understand if customer is not super happy.
CF wrap needs to be perfect to look good. Any small imperfection ruins it!
Iv done many wraps myself and I know that it takes a lot of skill and work to make nice wrap-job. The wave needs to be absolutely perfect and not sanded through on edges and so on..
If you want 10/10 result you need to mould parts instead of wrapping, but thats whole another story..

Keep on makin nice wraps

I can understand the guy not being satisfied. If I have someone do something like this, I want it to be perfect, or near to it. I agree he should contact you and get it straightened out first and come here if he's not getting any headway. But, as the business owner, I don't think you should be resorting to calling him "classless" or anything further. You should be keeping it professional from your end.

Expect to pay for perfect work then. Bills work is phenomenal at a really good price. It relates to why is a Modbargains GTR hood a third of the price of a Vorsteiner hood? Same comparison. That is a classless thing to do, very two faced to not express issues or concerns and say the work looks great, then close the door and get on the laptop and say it looks like balls. Looks great Bill.

Thanks guys. Those of you that know me, know I take every effort to produce the best quality product I can and if there is an issue (and there have been a few), I have resolved the issue to the client's satisfaction.... I clearly understand the power of word of mouth (both positive and negative) and obviously want to only have happy customers. There's an old saying in sales; a happy customer tells 1 person, an uphappy one tells 10 people. I just wish he had made some effort to contact me before posting nasty comments. Obviously there is a problem with the painted sections and how it eventually dried; however I keep stressing that he paid me AFTER CAREFULLY inspecting every part!!! Obviously whatever happened to the paint, happended after I dropped off the parts or he wouldn't have paid me. I didn't force him to pay; if had an issue, that would have been the opportune moment to make a comment or withhold payment until any issues were addressed. none of that ocurred.....
