I talked to the other guy, he said to see if I can at least get him to weld it up, and he'd do the primer, block, paint. I don't know if i can get this guy to weld a damn thing. He's welded one piece in the whole time.


He sent me this update last night after he blew up. (link below)

Welp, I've decided to pull the project after a total of $15,000 and almost a year of letting this guy work on it out of his garage. Big lessons learned here. I will neeeeever ever do anything of this scale without written quotes. Here is the picture i received today of the progress. It has looked like this for 6 months.

Sorry man, that is a tough lesson. Perhaps a minimal effort to take to small claims court would yield a settlement?

Any advice on how to go about that with regards to body work would be helpful. I've never taken anyone to court for something like this.

without a contract it would either be email, documentation of some sort or verbal agreements. It would be a tough one to win but just the hassle of it may make him settle it for some amount. Probably the best you could hope for without a written contract or proof of claims. I have seen judges (not Judge Judy) make decisions on the basis of testimony so if it got to that, it would be who they believe is truthful. You would nee to be prepared to fight that battle and see if it is worth it to you though. Every state is different but you could search for small claims procedures for your area and follow them. It is cheap and simple to file but the real work is following through.

Wow to me he hasn't done enough work for the money you paid him.I know there not easy but they are simple if ya know what i mean. Ive done frame offs before one 74 bronco and it was really simple panel replacement. It seems to me he bit off more then he could eat.
