Went to the shop today and the owner said he wont release the car unless I pay the totall they want, even though I have proof and picture that the car was only worked on for 7 days totall.. and my fabricator did all the fab work...

I went together with an ex insurance specialist and he said there is a detective for insurance/stollen cars who recover cars being held be auto shops or stollen cars that are found.
We let them know that detective has been notified and that it is illegal to hold someones property to require payment. I also had a body camera on me to catch the owner saying he was holding my car.

I really didn't need this drama..

Just call the police... they need a signed writing by you saying you authorized them to do the work and it must also state that all debts must be paid prior to release, said writing must be recorded, and THEN they may attempt to take your car and sell it to satisfy a judgment. You can actually sue him already, and the police would still be your best bet right now

I had a full metal WB done on my E46 M3 and it took over 8 months to complete so know your pain. Good luck!

Ended up settling with him.
Seems like Mob Customs (1st shop was the one causing all the confusion+some misscomunications between me/1st shop owner and 2nd shop owner) +nothing in writing,
Ends up 2nd shop owner is getting screwed out of $3700 bucks so is in worse shape then me, so I settled for $1000 out of the $2200 he was demanding for the release of the car.

I am supposed to pick it up today.

I will tow it home and when the new wheels arrive will take them to Rainier's house to finish the body work.

Just glad this dramma is near over, and I can continue the build.

Are you sure? This totally looks like Darren's work.

Maybe you are trying to reinvent yourself. I can appreciate that. New car, new persona.

Gabe is the new Darren. Congrats Gabe!

let me help out. grantmax is a "purist" member who (if I understand correctly) believes that you are creating a "hack job" of a car. Darren aka creaminz is the guy who created the hacked GT3 that was sold to an unsuspecting member of the porsche community.

I guess to each their own....
coming from purist's I take things super lightly, it's like my grandfather telling me my hair style is gay or that the music nowadays isn't as good as in the "good old days".

As long as it get's done the way I plan it to, I will be happy!
edit: just randomly saw a thread regarding a "totalled m3" which happens to be a liberty walk M3, other then yellow paint job it looks amazing. So that says alot.... I'll leave it at that.

I am part of the Purist group on FB, and there are always some purists talking smack about others rides that look different then the cars they were led to believe are the only correct styles.

Then again , I can totally understand someone thinking it's nuts to hack up a beautifull expensive car
