Ok, we all know about my little experience with the fender bender. I got it back from the body shop a couple weeks ago, but there was dirt in the paint. I took it back and they agreed to color sand and buff it to fix. I picked it up yesterday. In the places where the dirt was, there are now "fisheyes". These guys are being really nice, and I don't want to be a jerk, but I DO want my car back to factory paint conditions...How would ya'll handle this?

1.) Go in and demand a repaint?

2.) Allow them to fix the way they want to?

3.) Take it to another shop to fix since they already had twice to get it right, then send them the bill?

4.) Your suggestion...

Fisheyes are usually an indication of silicone contamination of the paint. They are very strict about this in the factory paint system.

:agree with FREEZER!

Fisheye's are usually cause because the surface wasn't completly stripped of wax, polish, sealer, etc. that may have contained silicone. It will NOT fix itself.

Digital, I am sure if they're a reputable shop and the fisheye's are visible, they will fix it. (Believe me this won't be their first time I'm sure!)

Take it back, if they can't make you happy. They should refund your money! Also get a estimate of cost from another shop, this may help when you approach them. Good Luck!

take it back

the leftover 'fisheyes' are actually where they tried to scrape, sand and polish the dirt. it's really hard to paint without some dirt, but accessive dirt is unacceptable. they should have pride in there work, any of my friends who work on black beauty know that everyone will be critiqueing (is that how it's spelled?) the results.
and even I'm not as brutal :flag

Most Auto Body Shops will go ahead and repaint just to maintian thier reps. I had it happen to me with my Honda Del Sol years back. It it thier job to get that paint job right so I do not think you would be out of line at all to nicely ask them to redo the job.
