Dave, I'm sorry but sometimes you can be quite smug, whether you realise it or not.

is this why none of your cars dont get finished Dave, you can't trust professionals to do their job? lol :D 

I'm not trying to be smug, not in the slightest... but also CBF with a lot of stuff these days.
There are so many more important things in life...
stress is a huge killer!

I was just speaking from experience, with personal and family members cars.

My dad and I are actually trying to solve dodgy panel beating work atm... work done yrs ago, on his EL sedan.
The boot is leaking, because rear valance metal seams were not sealed after the valance was cut in half, and only half replaced,
which has in turn caused rust...

Now that we've mostly investigated it, and know the causes... the proper fix, will be very involved.
We're both dreading, the mess we'll find behind the rear bumper.

TBH, I'd rather someone thought I was being Smug, (and in turn heeded some of my advice), if it saved them from the stress and heartache
of having to sort out dodgy repairs.

Usually, it's not worth the stress of trying to get the dodgy repairer to re-do anything...
so you have to do it yourself.
