I know its not polite to swear but sometimes working on my fracken mustang makes me want to. I think 4 fingered drunks have done most all of the work I have seen on my car and its work that I am now having to correct.
I'm having to go around and touch up all the gas tank screw holes for the new gas tank that I have coming. They are all either double drilled or seriously elongated into peanut shaped ovals.
At some point somebody put a new tail light panel on the thing and none of the rosette welds across the back are completely filled. I'm having to go around and hit every weld again and finish filling them in then grind them smooth.
The panel is on there ok except that they didn't paint the back of it. It does have some kind of dull black on it. The reason I know it wasn't painted is because it has the part number stencil sprayed on the inside in huge 1 inch letters and numbers. When did who do this sort of a thing for parts like this?
They also did not seam seal the tail light panel so I can look down inside my trunk and see daylight all along that support bar or beam that the tail light panel is against.
They/them botched these really bad when they put the tail light panel in so I'm having to replace both the lower corner pieces.
I still have the ends of metal strap bars that were welded to my rear frame rails to hang tail pipe on. Just one on each side was apparently not enough. There are 2 on each side. I am trying to figure out how to get up in there to get those off. I think I will have to chew away at the welds with my sawzall to get at them.
The tail light chrome bezels were screwed in with screws that were way too long and when they tightened them down they put dents in the tail light panels at all 4 corners on both tail lights.
The tail lights also had no gaskets at all.
