    Warning! Stay away from ROB KELLER

    Hi,

    This is a warning thread to stay away from Rob Keller username robbys13.

    On the 23rd of May 2015 I met Rob in Carlow town to give him my car. I had agreed to have a full respray done
    on my car a white S15. I gave money to cover paint and other materials. I was told then that I would have the
    car back at the end of June 2015. All seemed fine for about 2 weeks until I received my first excuse from rob
    about why he couldn’t send me any updates or pics. From this point on all I heard were excuses. They went as follows:
    - My gran died
    - I broke my thumb
    - My dad had a heart attack
    - My dad died
    - His sisters boyfriend was jailed for 17 years
    - His mother was on life support which was at one point to be turned off
    - He lost his job
    - Crashed his S14 (which turned out to be Jamie Moran's)
    - Broke up with his girlfriend
    - Broke his back by falling off a bouncy castle
    - Had to have multiple spinal surgeries

    There could be others but I have forgotten as there was so many.

    All these excuses came over a 7 month period from the 23rd of May to the 6th of December. Now some of
    you may ask why I left it there that long. Well I did believe some of the earlier excuses he gave and
    by the time I copped on it was to late he had stripped the paint on the car. So I gave him the chance to
    paint it, in hindsight this was a huge mistake.

    I collected the car on the 6th of December disregarding a stream of messages pleading to give him 3 more
    days (!!) to finish the car to a perfect standard even though he told me on the 13th of November that the
    only work left to be done on it was to hook back up the exhaust and polish the paint. When I went down to
    collect my S15 I was horrified to find it in the state it was (pics below will show this). He tried to say
    there was very little to be done by who ever I got to finish it. He said he would "make it right" by
    paying for it to be fixed. This turned out to be ANOTHER HUGE LIE.

    The purpose of this thread is to warn people of this low life, lying con man so that they wont be duped by
    him like I foolishly was.

    Feel free to contact me if you would like any more information or would like to see any more of the photos I have.


    Before Rob got hold of the car:










    After Rob got hold of it:











    A list of issues with his work are:
    - Runs in the paint
    - Rear wheel arches that he flared are different on each side
    - Waves in the rear quarters
    - Water in the paint
    - No hardener used in the paint
    - Flies in the paint
    - Painted over rust
    - Ruined rubber window seals with sander
    - Sprayed over tiger seal that was used to keep the skirts on
    - Sprayed my alloys different colours, I now have 2 black, 1 grey and a bronze alloy

    The list could go on.....

    Some other issues I noticed:
    - Removed my steering wheel
    - Studs on the manifold were loose
    - Turbo was hanging off the manifold
    - Prop shaft hanging loose disconnected from the diff.
    - Putting stupid stickers on the back window.

    I would advise everyone to stay clear of this con man. He will say all the right things to you but when it
    comes down to it he will ruin your car.

    wow this has gone viral! great work from everyone exposing him and his ways (and the gf's too!)
    hopefully no one else will ever fall for his lies and cowboying work.

    From what I gather, he was using the car as his own for about 2 months, even trying to sell it to people!

    Somebody should invite him to a local meet and show him how much you appreciate his work

    Here's two for starters, there's another 3 posts about him on the Irish Drifting Community FB page, including Simon's.

    FYI both him and his missus were members here, and both have now been permanently banned
