    Yep....After sending some parts off mine to Florida, I got them back 6 weeks later, and they looked like shit....Had to have another local shop fix those mistakes, and paid for two paint jobs on the same parts (bags and hard lowers)...First guy still has yet to refund a dime of the $450 I paid him, which is coming up on two years now....

    I'll never send anything out to another state for paint ever again....Only to a shop that I can drop off/pick up...

    Yeah that was bull. You did far better on the parts you painted yourself than that crap job.

    BD did my bike and I was really happy with the time he took talking to me about choosing a color prior to getting the work done. I've received nothing but compliments about the bike from people who have seen it.

    So he gets 2 thumps up
