    I had my Corvette painted there about 8 years ago. Right from the start, things weren't right: Couple cracks in the paint; a couple bubbles; one window regulator reinstalled backwards (up is down/down is up); and the absolute worst is they TOTALLY fucked up my weather seals - window & door seals leaked from day one, same for the rear window; they fucked up the seal on the targa top so bad, to this day I can't get the fuckin' thing off.

    I will say it looked fuckin' astounding for about a summer, even giving into the fact that they completely hacked my weather seals - the kit they suggested I use...THEY FUCKIN' SUGGESTED I USE. Their answer to the weather seal was simply, "...it's an old car, you should've purchased xxx instead..."

    Apparently, if you're on the Patriots roster or an aspiring model or rapper, this is the place to go. Otherwise, fuck them.

    I've kept my mouth pretty much shut about them all these years. This year when I rolled it out of the garage, I noticed a couple areas of paint that had actually come up and started peeling. And I'm meticulous about storing it. So now, here & now I say again: fuck them.

    Also not a great experience here. Details likely don't matter. Just know that my first attempt at paint work stuck better than the work they did.

    Also a bad experience and a friend of mine had a bad experience to boot. I heard rave reviews, and after the problems, people started telling me one on one that they had an issue. Seems like it's not okay to publicly negatively review this shop.

    I try not to publicly humiliate small, locally owned & operated businesses. I've seen good work come outta there. I was hoping mine was an exception, but more & more it seems this isn't the case. I'm so overly frustrated at this point, I'll do what I can to steer others away.

    My first experience with Landrics was good and I recommended them to others and even went back to them for more work, but the second experience was not good. The work was good, but the experience was not. One person who went on my recommendation also had a bad experience.

    My Soul Red Metallic Mazda3 needed paintwork recently after I rear-ended a Prius. Soul Red Metallic is notoriously difficult to match. So, I called the local Mazda dealer and asked them who they use. The service manager said their in-house work was done by the Colonial Auto Group body shop, but he personally used a local shop to paint his own Soul Red Mazda6. I went to the local shop and they did an amazing job on the paint.

    What's the difference between a bolt and a screw?
    First you screw, then you bolt.

    I cannot claim being good at body work. I did buy some equipment but I just don't have the right place for body work. Anyway, Cracks...They didn't put in a flex additive that you are supposed to use on parts that flex like soft flexible bumpers. Corvette fiberglass contracts and expands quite a bit and flexes. The additive keeps the paint from fully drying so it can flex too. Bubbles......They didn't clean the surface good right before spraying. Regulator. They don't check their work. Seals. I don't know what went wrong there.
