OK Guys I am ashamed for my industry with this one, and I think its time the film manufacturer concerned issued a quality/satisfaction guarantee to stop this kind of insanity.

Yet again I will spare the installers blushes but in case this guy steps up to claim ownership anyone want to speculate on what happened here?

This customer paid 680 for a standard kit (thank god they did not try full frontal) on a brand new RB 320 and he turned up at our place with a mate from the same owners club who was having his RB320 done.

just so we are clear I am not dissing competition in general, good competition I can live with (and appreciate) but dear lord please pick another line of work:mad: :mad: :mad: This is coming back to us next week to be done correctly fingers crossed there are no cuts in the paint.

This is a SMALL selection of the issues this film supposedly has NO orange peel MMMM (maybe its a trick of the light) he also appears to have melted the film in one area (i have NO idea how) and yes on one of these pics the brown staining is UNDER the film!!:shocked: :shocked:

Why is is almost impossible to tell where the pictures are supposed to be of?

I have a fair idea but it is like one of those competitions where a sponge like substance turns out to be your scrotum.

Classy response, clearly close in photographs render precise locational references impossible, however What I can tell you is we now know there was extensive damage to the paint, pictures shortly, most of the above were on the bumper with other damage on the bonnet this from a so-called computer cad kit from a heavilly advertised competitor, Interestingly one of the features of the patented adhesive is it doesn't leave residue when removed mmmmmm :grin:

Heres what we found when we took the Film off the car, Customer was very ticked off (not surprised) and the Car dealer is I understand incandescent, although I have a a no name and shame approach to this stuff, I have mixed feelings on this one TBH as I do wonder how many other cars like this from this guy are out there.

Another "custom job" and I suppose this guy tells people he cuts off the car not on the paint (doesnt look that way) film was removed with the customer present so there can be no allegation of "tampering" either. From the first batch of pictures it was pretty obvious mind that the paint had been damaged, if you know what to look for.

We found about a fifteen seperate cuts in the paint on the Bumper, Bonnet, Headlamps etc.
Someone will be getting a BIG bill soon methinks (hope they are insured).:shocked: :shocked: :wink3:

On the bonnet and the wings you can see the adhesive left behind when the "residue free film" was removed not that it is a big deal when you know what to do but to claim in ads and on websites it wont do this when it clearly does has to throw every claim they make into question IMHO :thumbsdow :laugh:

The white line you see on the wing is where the adhesive residue ends, what you cant seen on the bonnet is where the edge line is, when the film was removed we found a seven inch score mark in the paint right on the edge of that line :mad: :cry3:

The Manufacturer concerned either needs to clean house, or retrain as this kind of thing hurts the whole industry, so called "BULK FILM" custom Jobs, or "pattern modifications in the field" really means what you see above, its time these people went elsewhere IMHO. :cry3:

Bottom Line if someone does this to a car the Owner should sue not just for the respray but the added depreciation as a result of the respray due to the extensive damage to the paint IMHO:shocked: :shocked:

Don't really understand the point of posting this and then not naming them so at least people can benefit from knowing not to go there - I mean otherwise what's the point in showing it? We all know that somewhere there will be someone doing crap work.....

Its an understanding I have with committee members on most forums as it could put them in an awkward position VIS A VIS Nuiscance claims and such, also even though I dont name them its not hard to find out usually :) I can always be called up or e-mailed off the board :)

Addittionally it serves as a warning that in THIS industry all is not as it appears and that it pays to check the operation out thoroughly:cry3:

Not to mention my frustration in clearing up after these sorts of guys:mad:

OK Here is an extract from the installation instructions from the film supplier in this case, this is what really annoys me as it leads to what happened here and other examples. This is so not needed with good designs and skilled installers.

I guess people should ask to see the Installation instructions nowadays issued to distributors as well as satisfying themselves that they are insured. :(

"Excess Film Removal:
Following completion of installation it may occasionally be required to remove excess film. This should be done using a sharp blade as earlier recommended.
The film only requires the top surface to be scored, this will allow easy separation and avoid causing damage to the underlying paintwork. Wherever possible it is recommended that the film to be trimmed is lifted away from the panel and trimmed before re adhering.
(Caution should be taken whenever trimming the film in place, always ensure that a fresh blade is used and only apply the minimum amount of pressure to avoid paintwork damage!)

And Another

"4. Where excess material is to be folded around hood edges it is necessary that you remove a triangle of film from any 90-degree corners to avoid excess material gathering underneath. Do this by lifting the material away from the panel and trimming diagonally across the corner before repairing.6. If there are large quantities of excess material when folding complete you can remove this back to a suitable fixing point by trimming with a fresh blade.

The annoying thing is that this should NEVER be needed, for any organisation to sanction condone or otherwise encourage, use of a blade on or near paintwork is no longer acceptable. The solution is simple do better designs :cry3:

I have an astounding e-mail on this subject from a former distributor of these guys who admits cutting on the car for 3 years!!!!!!!!:shocked:

:mad: :grin: :grin:

rant off :)

It'll be interesting to see what the "dealer fit" protection film that's listed on the factory options looks like on the 430 Scuderia......... unless you've got the contract Tom? :wink3:

No that ones not ours, that will be interesting though as dealers really cant fit this otherwise it will be a deal with a film manufacturer who will use a nominated installers :)

thats where the whole thing comes apart clive as it depends on the accuracy of the design and the skills of the installer.

WE have someone really interesting with us all week but I cant talk about it yet I will as soon as I am allowed :)
