Additional Notes

Complaint: We contracted with JMA to custom paint our entire truck. They went 2 weeks past their promise date which caused us 2 extra weeks of car rental. We returned the truck for touch up paint mistakes and the front bumper was reinstalled incorrectly. We purchased a custom hood which they were to paint & install. They put a dent in the hood and had to re-adjust a bolt that nearly pushed a hole thru the hood. The final mistake was that they never painted the inside of the front fenders and returned my truck with bare metal on the inside of both fenders. We paid JMA in full ($6,086) at the time we picked up our truck. Now after speaking with the owner it is his position that they will not paint the fenders and "I should just squirt oil on them" where the his final words as he hung up the on me.

Desired Settlement: Requesting JMA to pay for my truck paint to be completed by another body shop.

Business Response:

To Whom It May Concern:

Mr. ******* ***** brought his truck in on February 21, 2014 for a preliminary estimate. Mr. ***** came in on May 07,2014 (as noted on his file) he was taken into the garage to show him the progress of the truck and the issues that we found. After flares and mudguards were removed from the front fenders we found rust to the extent of pieces of fender missing and paint peeling. We also found rust in the seams along the bottom of all doors. We suggested parts be replaced because rust cannot be stopped. Mr. ***** stated he was not concerned about the fenders because the flares would hide the issues and was not going to replace the doors. At this time we suggested spraying oil on the rusted areas to prolong the life of the fenders and doors. The fenders and doors were painted and oil was sprayed inside of the fenders and doors for him.

On May 08,2014 Mr. ***** was asked to stop in to see what was found when we removed the rear flares from the bedsides. We found extensive rust and recommended the panels be replaced and he asked ******** to email pictures to him. ******** emailed pictures of bedsides (enclosed) to Mr. ***** to show him how rusty it was. He said he expected it to be a lot worse because it was recommended replacing the panels and did not want to replace the bedsides due to the cost and to just do the best we could. Also noted on his file. Again, it was recommended to spray oil to prolong the life of the panels.

Mr. ***** said he would like his truck done in two weeks and since this was an entire truck being redone we said we would try, but cannot promise that. Also noted on his file.

In response to the hood. The *****’s purchased a custom fiberglass hood which they said we dented. It is impossible to dent fiberglass. It was a flaw in the manufacturing of the product. The bolts from the hood were supplied by the manufacturer, which was purchased by the *****’s, and any damage to the hood is a manufacturer’s defect. When we heard the bolt was pushing on the fiberglass hood we went to Ms. *****’s place of work and shimmed the bolt free of charge.

During the repairs Mr. ***** asked me if I could cut him a break if he paid me cash. I said I would give him a 6% discount. This made him happy. It was completed on Friday May 30,2014. Mr. ***** and Ms. ***** came in at the end of the day and spent an hour

On Monday June 02, 2014 Mr. ***** called and said he was at ********’s on Saturday and when he came out he found people standing around his truck saying how beautiful his truck is and asked who did the work. He was very happy. On that same day he said the bumper needed adjusted and it was brought back in and readjusted for him.

in July, Mr. and Ms. ***** brought the truck back and complained about the inside of the front fenders not being painted. We explained that it wasn’t something we forgot to do it was the manufacturer who didn’t paint it and as a result it rusted and they were reminded that this was pointed out while the truck was here and it was suggested at that time that they should replace the fenders because, again, this is the only way to resolve this rust issue. They DID NOT want them done. We told them that for something like that to help slow up the rust since they did not want to replace them to spray some oil on it. All of sudden they’re not happy.

It has been brought to our attention that Mr. ***** has been bad mouthing us on social media (copy enclosed) and we are considering taking legal action on this.

We kept the *****’s in constant update and did what they wanted done on the truck. We did nothing wrong and don’t deserve the lies being told. We try as hard as we can to make our customers happy, but for some reason nothing we do can make the *****’s happy. Nothing. It was repeatedly explained to Ms. ***** why the sides were bare and reminded her it was their decision not to have it taken care of. As a result of their decision not to have it taken care of while the truck was here, we will not pay to have someone else take care of it. Ms. ***** continued to interrupt me when I tried to remind her that it was their decision not to replace the fenders. I finally said, “I respectfully have to end this conversation, you have a good day ma’am.
