    I transferred here for my company, they paid someone to trailer my Forester XT down here and the paint is in pretty terrible shape now. Hard water spots, bird shit that must be baked onto the paint (won't come off in a car wash), and to top it all off... the flatbed driver that dropped it off at my apartment, said he "washed" it with a hose and a wet rag to get the dirt off. Thanks dickhead, now I have fine scratches all over the paint.

    Anywho, the transport company has a repair claim open for me, but I need to get two written estimates on how much it would cost to buff out the scratches (minus well get a full detail too right?). I have no idea who's trustworthy around here.

    Any ideas?

    I've searched. I already contacted gandhibrokemyskates, unfortunately he doesn't have time.

    Thanks

    i don't know of any OTer's in the Houston area . Scott is in Autsin. He'll probably chime in here later if he knows anyone. You can also register for www.autopia.org and check in the regional forums to see if there is anyone there. also search a bit there and you may find someone.

    Thanks, searching autopia now.

    I thought Scott was in Dallas? I'm sure he'll chime in eventually :o

    See original post, he doesn't have time :o

    I got one quote from JoshVette on autopia, he comes down to Houston fairly frequently so I'll probably end up having him do it. The shipping company needs two different quotes though, would you mind if I fwd you the email/pics I sent Josh and just shoot me back a rough estimate on what you'd charge to get the scratches out? Just so I have another estimate to show them? :x:

    My afternoon customer was running late, so I went home for 30 minutes or so. He tipped me $40 because he was late, plus some hot jailbait girls have the hots for his son (I think he is a junior in high school) and came by and were just standing around outside in tight little shorts and tops. :naughty:
