We appreciate the nice comments about how easy we are to work with, but the cost difference on the price estimate, as we never give quotes only estimates, was based off of the client not bringing the vehicle to the shop until 5 hours after the scheduled appointment and working with our partners to be able to keep the vehicle in the schedule and work deligently to accomplish the project in the time frame estimated.
As the shop owner, myself and my staff always contact the clients concerning any cost over run. It not our policy to spend the client's money without their consent first.
This vehicle was covered in linseed droppings and had interior issues also. The paint was almost compromised in the attempt to get all the linseed droppings buffed out. This was an exceptionally challenging job to keep within all the limitations the client requested.
Some of the other costs involved fixing the gas cap release motor and the trunk being able to be opened from the push button in the glove box. This was all found to be related to the vallet switch in the glove box being corroded and in need of replacement as the switch was stuck and would release even when depressed or released.
