So presumably you've got to get another quote.

Ok paint job done , thank god my question is has anyone been happy with there paint jobs upon completion no matter how much iv payed im
Never 100-% happy iam seriously fussy but for me for £1000 it should be like brand new not a single
Mark or blemish . Iv questioned the place but they say its never going to perfect ? Like the gold piping on the tank you can see a ridge under it from the step in colour. They blamed that on the decal kit I purchased saying it was thin 😔. Even its being the best money can buy not a cheap kit , or is it me just being two picky . The bike owes me over £6000 and feels like iv wasted my time if its not perfect

For £1000 I would expect a very high standard of work and be annoyed if I felt it was anything less. I don't know how you checked out the paint company before you gave them the job but for something like this I would want to see examples of what they could do and maybe even ask to speak to previous customers. You should never part with the final payment until you're totally happy. It's a shame if you feel you've wasted time and money. I'd love to see the bike (I know you can't do the picture thing) and I'd bet it looks good but that doesn't help you if you think it doesn't. The only thing I can suggest is that you speak to Citizen's Advice, they can be more helpful than you might think.

Are you sure that's the same bike you were disappointed with? Looks bloody amazing to me. Can't see a single flaw. You should be very pleased, I would be.

It looks very tidy from that picture.

Who did the paintwork for you?

Yes dont get me wrong its very impressive and everywhere iv been people are stopping to talk to me about it . I had the police get out and was walking around it i thought the mot and insurance might not of gone on the system o no just admiring it , im actually blown away with how it rides , just im super anal when it comes to my bikes so even if i see the littlest thing drives me mad but i pointed the bits out to the people looking at it and they looked at me like i was crazy , its as good in real life its like brand new . Its just a shame its not all uk spec but tbh i dont like the uk indicators and mirrors anyway.
