Default Am I just being too anal?

Got my new Scott Drake dash bezel in yesterday. Found this one small blemish in one of the openings and I'm wondering if I should call the vendor for a swap. What would you do?


Yea, if I've got to point it out, I'm being too anal! LOL!!

I don't think so. You have to look at it all the time. I'd return it for a "blemish free" item.

PS: If they let you keep it and you want to get rid of it cheap I need one to hack up for gauges.

I hear ya all the same, you are putting your best effort in putting this car back on the road. In saying that though I had to look really hard to see it...most won't.

I would contact the vender and return it. It's main reason for being replaced is appearance.

Slim

P.S.It jumped right out to me and I just have a driver!

You shouldn't have to settle for something you are not happy with.

You can also call Scott Drake directly and tell them about it,
they are a great company that is concerned with quality.
They are even a registered user on this forum and may well
see this post.

LOL! If I get to keep it, I'm thinking a picture frame or a wall clock. Heck, I might just buy another to do that.

Not anal at all, it's your money. It bugged you enough to post about it. Send that dude back.

PS, I didn't see the blemish

In this case, no. In some cases, yes.

I started feeling much better when I learned to let go of small things. A ding in the paint of the control arm isn't keeping me awake as much as it used to, and now I have time for other things I enjoy which are higher up on the list of life. Plus, none of your friends want to hear about it.

Yeah, but you will look at that blemish every time you drive the car and wish you had done something back when you had the chance. I'd swap it.

I try my absolute best to put parts on my vehicle that do not have any issues, then when the ones come around I can't do anything about I deal with it, otherwise my entire car would be a three ring circus.

I agree, you will have to see it all the time and if it really bothers you I would send it back. Even if you decided to keep it i have to tell you I dont see the blemish ha Do whatever will make you the most happy since thats all that will really matter in the end.

Send it back.... I ordered one along with pony door handles... and all the wood grain must had been applied by a drunk.. crooked and lifting up in corners.... Quality just isn't a factor when everything is chunked out in Chiner

I think a better question is "Are you happy with it?"

That answer is pretty obvious...who cares if some people would consider it anal...this is your ride and you obviously take pride in it. Don't settle, especially when you paid good money for the part.
