    Post Re: Damage

    I found it hard to believe too as I know use and highly recommend Meguiar's products and have been for over 25 years now .

    Mike simply stopped responding to my queries as did the next Meguairs empoyee I contacted , he admitted he knew my claim was legitimate then he put me off a few times then stopped responding altogther .

    I too was flabbergasted to discover the price of this unobtanium part but yes , I have replaced it , no I couldn't afford the correct part but I now have a suitable mirror on my car and a lesson learned .

    Shame on you and Meguiar's for simply ignoring my repeated pleas for help , I'm just a working schmoe , single parent who has to watch ever dang penney coming or going .

    I still HIGHLY RECOMMEND MEGUIAR'S PRODUCTS .

    I no longer want you to send me any $$ , I am good to go .

    This old red car looked ready for the crusher , it has a 10 year old $200.00 paint job on it , Mike and the rest of the crew REALLY know the details of doing this correctly ~ I am sure there's many out there who , like me , buy old klunkers and tinker them back to health , rub out the paint and kiss 'em goodbye ~ try following all the step by step instructions Meguiar's gives you and you'll be FLABBERGASTED at how nice it comes out !

    This Metropolitan is my personal car , I never imagined it could look so nice .

    Kudos and a big THANK YOU ! to all who helped make this happen !

    Although the mirror got broke, (an accident), and I did drop the bag on finding you a replacement, I'm glad you liked how your car turned out.

    I've sent an e-mail to the SoCal Nash Metropolitan Club asking for help to locate you a replacement mirror as well as an e-mail to Jacqui aka Metro Ma and I'm confident that we can find you a replacement ASAP just in case you don't like the one you bought for $150.00

    Hang tight....

    Just to note, when I left Meguiar's I was no longer able to receive any e-mail at my Meguiar's e-mail address.


    I'll send you the $150.00 anyway because it's important to me to make sure you're not out the $150.00 for the mirror. No need to blame anyone at Meguiar's for this as it was my fault.

    Just PM me your mailing address and the check will be in the mail or if you have a PayPal account I can PayPal you the $150.00 today.


    Sorry Nate...

    A little research would show that Mike had left Meguiar's shortly after this makeover. He not only changed jobs, but physically moved 3,000 miles from California to Florida.

    Mike has never stopped posting on MOL, I would have just PM'd him directly.

    High marks and kudo's to Mike for taking care of this; researching for the correct Metro mirror as well offering to reimburse Nate for the money he spent.

    Love those VW bugs! Great job guys. That paint looked pretty dull on the Nash. shined up really well.

    I just wanna know how mike keeps his black clothes clean while buffing and polishing.
