Is there any one that can help please.

Back in April my Brother died a horrible death.

But before he got really bad, he wanted his petrol remote control car fixed so he could give it to his son, so we took it to a shop in New Brighton, and after nearly a year, still not fixed (oh by the way it's my fault for not keep going in every week to check up) (idiots)

They knew the situation, and they knew how bad my brother was, when he managed to go to shop every couple of days in really bad health.

When car was taken in, my brother paid 10 upfront, and they told him if they could not fix it, they would return the 10.

Any how I get car back to day with bits stripped of it, that where on it when it was taken in.

They have said they will not give the 10 back (to be honest if that 10 means so much to them, so much to call my brother a lier) they can keep it.

I would really really like to get this car fixed, so I can give it to his son, which is why my brother tried to get it fixed before he passed away.

"I cant say anything else about this shop, as just thinking about the way they have acted, makes my blood boil"

Is there any one that would like to take this job on, of trying to source parts and repair it please.

At least I will have furfilled one of my brothers wishes.

I am not bothered about cost, I just would like it completed.

Heart warming story, any chance of naming and shaming this terrible shop so we can avoid it in the future?

I know the shop. Not very reliable tbh.

Andre is sh|t hot with cars.

There is a rolling Chassis on eBay http://bit.ly/QXBfTS

That should replace all the bits you need and leave you with extras for the future smile
