Default Is My Eyes?

Having a shop paint and install some new fenders on my Jeep. Along with some other things. I made a quick stop to check on progress and I see this. The black area on the passenger fender looks wider than the driver side.

Looks like angled on the passenger side and straight line on the driver's, so more black on passenger side as you get closer to the front. Could be angle of the photo but that's how it appears to me.

Your right. The passenger side is wider. The driver side is only painted on the fender the passenger goes onto the body. Definitely different.

Yep ignore that dumb comment. That’s definitely done wrong. I’m sure they will fix it. At least I hope they do. Just a poor tape job.

Don’t even need a tape measure. Just use a stick or piece of paper.... have your answer in 2 seconds.

It's just the tape line. Easily corrected.

Add it to the punch list or notify them what you see. There will be more to add. Runs, overspray, ect.

It's like take a fish picture. The further in or out changes the weight from 5lbs to 10+lbs. Tape measure can fix your illusion problem.

I once saw a picture of a 10' rattlesnake. That thing was HUGE!


I think the difference in perspective makes it looks off... just measure it and be done.

I had actually spoken to the owner on Friday and he did invite me to come down to check things out. He stated that the only thing it lacked from being finished was a tune for the newly installed LS motor. Interesting thing is that I was told to swing by Saturday and was assured the shop would be open. When I got there it was closed up tight.

I think it’s an angle thing. Look at the Rv mirrors and their relationship to the vertical tin strips on the background shop wall.

You are closer to the area in question in one (first) photo---changes perspective.

I would definitely bring it to their attention.
To me, looking down the side of the body as a baseline, it looks 1 1/2-1 3/4" wider on the passenger side at the front of the fender. When y'all look at it, post up here what the difference is between sides. Out of curiosity.

No, I didn't have a tape with me when I stopped in the yesterday. Didn't realize I was gonna need one and haven't been back out there. I am about 99% confident that the passenger side is wider. I tried getting in line with the side of the Jeep as best I could in order to give a good reference.

Yup. It's looks like you could lay a finger across one side to measure and walk to the other side and compare it. It's far enough off you don't need no stinkin tape measure to tell. They probably know already. If they don't, shame on them!

Listen to this man. He has dealt with looking at straight lines from all perspectives for years. If it's off a 1/10th in 100', he will see it.

This is why my wife hates for me to hang pictures. She wants to measure everything and I don't need a tape or level.

With them already having the dang thing 5 months and screwing this up it really makes me wonder what else they screwed up. I know it's a simple fix, but they don't even have the driver side turn signal wired in. Also, they did not install the forward most screws on the rock sliders. Again, it's a simple fix, but come on man!
