Beware of "Ink & Iron All Female Auto Body Shop"

Anyone who comes across this shop.....please beware
Let's just say you've been warned

PG-13 version of all the photos


If you've got time and would like to read the whole story.... read on (content contains course language, viewers discretion is advised)

High Res Photos can also be viewed here...

Please help share the links and warn others before they fall victim like myself..... unfortunately I was not aware of all the people who already had issues with them prior.
Feel free to comment and say what ever you like... yes I know I was stupid for paying them up front but they came highly recommended by a friend and also because of metal fabricator Dan Fournier... since I wanted good metal work on the car and not micky mouse bondo patch work.... well i guess i was wrong. . .

Cliff's notes please. OP you expect people to read through all that? Why not just post a review like everyone else, I don't need to read word for word every single correspondence you had. Also, posting photos of pianted panels doesn't always show defects clearky and bare or sanded bodywork to the average RFD who isn't experienced in auto body repair is moot.

Don't choose a shop because of a gimmick like all female mechanics, pick it based on quality of work.

I know a shop in Brampton (if you can believe it) that does A++ work every time. May have to wait a bit because they are always so busy, but definitely worth it, I only bring my car there.

Lol @ this review

‘just got my car painted and was looking for some cut n polish to bring out the pearl in my pxr paint... was considering this place but I have seen a a guys Infiniti buffed like a noob with plenty of swirls marks like it was 10 year old paint running through harahest winter n touch car wash. The cars not even 5 years old, and they don't even act to want to fix the issue or anything. Made it easy to cross off my list.’

And the fact their name is "Ink and Iron" wasn't a giveaway that they may not be a good body shop?

Thx for the advise... and I did say read if you have time or just see the video or link to high-res photos
reason i didn't say anything other then let ppl read or view the photos and be their own judge is that most people like to comment or judge without know the complete story.

My friend recommended and I also went because I wanted good quality metal work done and Dan Fournier metal fabricator was the reason I took my car there... he works for Legendary Motorsports specialises in metal fabrication for classic cars and if you look up Fournier Metal Fabrication you'll know who he is related to...

Other than working experience, do any of the staff; including the owner have their Red Seal?
