In addition to a repaint on the door the vinyl had to be replaced and the offender crapped their pants when they learned that the bill was almost 1.8k. Without the vinyl it would have been less than half that cost.The company who hired the eye candy should cover the costs of replacing it.
Thanks for your input and support.

People just assume vinyl is dirt cheap, the front fascia peice is especially not cheap because of how intricate it is to wrap.

No prob, bro. That just sucks. And another issue is color matching once the vinyl has been on there for a while. It invariably fades from exposure to the sun and other elements.. Good luck.

I agree with you they should have been briefed on what to do and what not to do. If they mess up something due to stupidity then you as the company owner should be held accountable for it since they do work for you. Take them to small claims court if need be.

If I had seen her coming toward my car I would've worried about that belt buckle - that could cause some damage! Sorry to hear about the damage - that sux no matter how you look at it.

Sorry to hear about that, I got no scratches from them on my car; although the one with the white shorts wanted to get in my car and had to decline that request.

Sorry that the scratches occurred. On the flip side if you display your car the chances for damage always go up exponentially. It goes with the territory. The GM guys know this all too well. Not saying that it is right, it just happens. But remember - since you were displaying this for your business, the fixes should be covered as damage during marketing.

I think the 6'5" bald guy should be at your future shows. I think they should cover the cost of re-wrapping also, a lesson for them to learn about going to car shows and being responsible.

Oh that sucks. I would love to see some pics of the car though. I've always been a fan of the flat/satin black look.

Don't get me wrong, the scratches suck, big time. But unless all you have is a he said, she said bit on who caused it your s.o.l.. I have a nice size ding in the back fender. Yes my car was in a booth, and on track. Getting mine fixed and covering cost myself. Oh, and windshield from rock chips driving cross country. Bottom line is next time, rope off the camaro at next show! If not, Then maybe just a hood or fender to demonstrate product. I don't think it's fair to bash a company however with little to no proof and then slam the owner because he doesn't live on C5 like some do, and respond to a pm. Were they the ONLY women around your camaro with nails? Like you said you were extremely busy, maybe they were the only 2 you remembered or saw by the camaro?
Don't take this the wrong way, I'm just saying, if you go to a show, expect the worst, but hope for the best. Some members had engine issues to and from fest (much more expensive). Cosmetic / body damage - expect it. Could have been a little bit more professional on your part instead of just bashing a vendor. You should have called ACE before bashing (1-915-317-8984). I found the # in the same amount of time you did bashing here. Carlos has had these girls at numerous shows from what I was told, and how to respect everyones rides. You can also find them on face book under ACE CUSTOM STEERING. Trust me, I'm not taking either side, I could get pissed over a few things from vender's on here, however, I will at least give them the opportunity to correct prior to taking it up on a public thread with only 1 side of the story. Good luck, and hope it gets corrected soon.......

Spot On.

It's the cost of doing business...and while I feel for you...it's a known risk. What if a forum members girlfriend/wife had done the same thing? Would you be seeking recompense here as well?

It SUCKS...and I feel for you. If private communication doesn't work, then it's time to chalk it up to lesson learned and write it off as a business expense.

I have my hood painted flat black and it's a BITCH to keep in good shape...so I feel your pain.

The person that was herding them around should have given them instructions in my opinion. If the person was a photographer he/she would have known about property damage. They hopefully had an "IQ above room temperature..."

Sorry for your loss.
