They are fitting a new rear door, the trim (including handles, etc) are being removed from both doors to reduce masking up & overspray (classic sign of accident repair). The doors are being paint matched as is the rear panel which looks to have deformed slightly.

This sounds a thorough job, which should ensure that no evidence of a repair is left.

Personally speaking, if the insurance is happy with the extent of the job, and you're not being excessively inconvenienced - then I'd be grateful for getting a good job - too many complain about the work being rushed.

Sorry if I sound a bit caustic (unintentional).


This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
