I have a mk 6 golf gti and unfortunately a staff member at work put a car cover on it while it was raining. Something happened in combination with the cover, the rain and the paint, and now the paint has minor imperfections all over it and needs a respray. I tried to cut and polish it out but it won’t work.
The work I have seen locally here in Koh Samui is absolutely terrible. Most spray out in the open (not even with a closed booth). I had an insurance job done on a Ford Fiesta from a so called reputable shop, and after about 18 months the paint was already peeling off. There was no care at all, no proper preparation done on the new panel. I took it back and they obviously didn’t care. Just said it has a one year warranty and that time has already passed. So needs respraying again which would be chargeable. They would have done the same shoddy work and I’d be back again every 18 months for life.
I am more than happy to spend 50k baht on a decent respray and will travel to Surat Thani, Krabi even Phuket! But I would like to know that the job will be done properly with proper attention to preparation etc. And without the usual ‘Mai bpen rai’ laziness and shortcuts.
Can anyone recommend a shop that takes pride in their work and can offer some kind of warranty?
