Look what these morons did...

I had to take my sammy to bucky's here in washington to get a new cat converter put on since I burned mine up. That was a mistake. Look at the attached picture. Have you ever seen a weld like that before? I didn't even know you could do that with a welder... This already has pinhole leaks in it. Also if you notice they didn't even hook the stock hanger back up. They also welded the thing so that the tailpipe was hitting the bumper. When I brought it back, the guy just takes a big crow bar and bends the hanger! [img]images/graemlins/chair.gif[/img]

Re: Look what these morons did...

WTF is that crap?! Man, I feel your pain. Some people out there just don't know what they're doing. I've seen this time and time again. Too bad you didn't know someone with a welder.

Cheers,
Steve

Re: Look what these morons did...

howdy,
i have seen a weld like that before. my dad gave me my first welden leason at the age of 8 on our old farm, and that is what i did to the skid-bucket. held good for 4 years then gave out. so do a 8 year old weld this for you. i would rip that cat off and shove it up the guys _ _ _. but then again i have flex pipe right now cause i can't find a muffler boy i would trust with my sammi for more than to just look at her.

Re: Look what these morons did...

I'm not sure if I should take it back to them... I'm afraid of what they would do to the poor thing.

Re: Look what these morons did...

There's like a pound of weld there. That's going to slow your sammy down. Your lose about 5 m/h. I would go back and complain to get your money back.

Re: Look what these morons did...

howdy,
i would take it back and not let them work on it. wait until a saturday around lunch or early mourning and make a scenewith the maneger while they are busy. just an easy way to get it fixed right or some money back. oh just to let ya know i am not aloud to goto the local firestone anymore due to a plug i asked to be burned patched. i got the burn patch and my $15 back.

Re: Look what these morons did...

well, I had the same kind of weld done on my Sami's cat too. Here is what I was left to do, I went back there and asked what the hell kind of job they did, and they told me that their was no refund on "custom" jobs. So I made this huge scene about proper business ethics. They offered to re-do the job, but I said screw-it and took it down to another muffler shop. When I got it back, I noticed that there was a lot less welding crap on it, but now it makes a rattle can noise in the cat. It's probably some old welding crap in there or something. So now, I have paid for two cats, one that was a crap job, and the other that is on there good, but now makes noise. ARGH!!!
