    Help on new paint job!!

    So I recently had my T/A painted and the guy who painted it did a horrible job. The whole car has dust particles all over the car. I am guessing he didn't paint it in a clean dust free enviroment. My question is, How can i fix this and can i even do this myself? I have heard that it is difficult to fix it because only the painter knows how much material he used, therefore wet sanding could lead to disaster.

    i would contact the guy who painted the car to see if there was something you could work out. whether it's some money back in your pocket our he chooses to correct the problem areas. its a tough call but i believe the right one to do.

    I did get in contact with him, and he told me he would fix it but it has been almost a month and have not heard from him.

    follow up by showing up in person. don't wait, make it a point to press him until he acts. at least that's what i would do. but i tend be be more abrasive than others to make sure the services I pay/paid for are met.
