need sum advice

What up y'all... Well I just recently had to take my civic to another bodyshop because my original shop jacked up the fitment of my sideskirts so when I got bagged I was never able to slam the front. Well it's costing me $500 to have the skirts shaved down and to reaquire my paint. (150 bux a quart) During the time, we were having a really difficult time getting my paint matched, so we contacted my previous body shop and they were total *******s. They told us that they couldn't help because they didn't know the exact combo to get my custom color paint, but when my new body shop called they wanted to charge them like $250 a quart.

So now my question to y'all. I want to have a custom vinyl made for my rear window that says Done by Original body shop's name Corrected by New Body Shop's name Now here comes the problem. My team still accepts money towards sponsorship from my original shop(they were our unofficial team sponsor). I don't want to **** off the rest of my team but I really want everyone to know not to go to this specific shop...

Holla at me and let me know what y'all think I should do.

Much thanx,

Pyro

well that is a hard decision. i guess it depends on how much you really want to roll with them. in my opinion if someone screwed me i wouldnt care what other people thought. you know you got screwed by them and hopefully the other club members wouldnt support them after screwing you.it should be a whole club decision. either talk it out with the shop or talk to the club and see if you can find another shop to help sponsor the paint and body work.

See problem is, I love my team. They are my extended family. I don't want to do anything to strain anything with them. At this point though, almost everyone is frustrated with them. I think there are only like 3 of my members that still go there, but as Sargeant of Arms for my team it feels like I need to be very careful with how I represent things.

you also need to stand up for them and not let anyoe else get screwed by them. its your duty as a team mate to inform them and let them know what one of the sponsors is doing to you

If I was your friend, I would like you a hell of a lot more if you saved me from having to spend hells of a lot more money to fix mistakes from a crappy bodyshop.
