WTF: Good Straightener

Postby TriniGT » March 7th, 2007, 10:03 am

Okay, I looking for a good straightener with the following qualifications:

Living in the area - I live Tacarigua, anywhere in the vicinity
Dependable - I can get my car back in a timely fashion
Quality - Does a quality job and can handle fibreglass work and preps well with no overspray and installs bodykits well and does an all round good job
Price - Not buss-head prices

I know sounds like I looking for the ideal straightener but I feddup dealing with small shops that take on too much wok and yuh car staying there for a year and no work being done on it except for fuming the car from painting other small jobs. This is for my project S14, I currently have the nose cut somewhat attached, I say this because it may still need some aligning. I know the front still has some jacking to do and the roof still needs jacking as well to get the sunroof to align properly. The back basically done and awaiting for a good person to rivet on the widebody rear fenders and cut the inner original fenders and beat them out to accommodate the wider wheels and apply the necessary filler to smoothen out the transition of the wide fenders. Front wide fenders are already on but they still need to be aligned properly as the previous straightener did sheit all to align them and redrilled the holes and bolted them, would need to get that fibreglassed and redrilled as well. I want to get the entire car sprayed after it is prepped, both interior and exterior, the car is totally scrapped apart from a rolling shell, dash and all is out and flooring as well. I want the full works. Can anyone do this? If I have to carry the car outside of the area I will for a better finish and somone that I know will work on the car that is dedicated and not just every once a week. Let me know who I can get in touch with. Yes the car needs some love so is a lovemaker I looking for, I will get pics hopefully by today and post them up so people can get an idea of the work involved. Help out a fellow tuner that trying to get the project finished, thanks Jason.

Wish this could have been a DIY project but entirely out of my line of work, I have taken it to two shops and the second one going on two weeks without anything being done. This first was there since Easter 2006 :roll:
