I just wanted to change my regular door hinges to lambo hinges. I turned in my corvette to him on 28 July 2012. He drove my Corvette (without my consent) and got in a car accident. I was lucky enough that my insurance covered the damages and authorized $8978.34 on 8/15/2012. As of today I have my Corvette still in pieces and never got my car repaired (front/back bumper, exhaust, front lamps and other items) and or painted (candy apple red). Mr. Lesley Domingue constantly lied about "working on it" and never did anything for 7 months. He got kicked out of two shops and owe over $3,000 to one them and $9,000 to me. If you want to lose your insurance money, get constant lying and no service and lastly have this guy drive your vehicle without your knowledge and wreck it then he is the guy for you, if not then go to a reputable body shop dealer that will do what they promised and will not scam you out of your money. Disgusted and Very upset former victim.....

Auto shop in Virginia Beach, VA

AUTHOR: - ()

I want to give my sincere apology to Glasshouse Kustoms in Las Vegas.  I am referring to the Glasshouse Kustoms in Virginia Beach, Va.  I by no means is referring to the outstanding shop in Las Vegas in any way shape or form.  Let me again clarify that this body shop is in the state of VIRGINIA and not Las Vegas.  

My sincere apologies,

JAMES NEWPORT NEWS, VA

#2 UPDATE Employee

Web Site Clarification

AUTHOR: WebMaster - (USA)

Also, I just noticed the http://www.glasshousekustoms.net web URL that is listed as associated with the Newport News, Virigina business.   I'm not sure why OUR URL is listed with this Virginia company.  As the Webmaster for Glasshouse Kustoms in Las Vegas, Nevada I can tell you that I just purchased the .net 2 weeks ago. It's possible this Newport News company owned the URL at one time, and this website Rip Off Report hasn't updated the information.  Please remove the link, as it incorrectly associates our Las Vegas Glasshouse Kustoms business (which has absolutely NOTHING to do with this Newport News company) with the company being complained about.  

As a new employee of the artist Glass in Las Vegas, I'm doing everything I can to assist him from having this besmirching report and association to this apparently very irrepsonsible individual in Newport News who unfortunately operates under the same name as our business in Las Vegas.  

It would greatly help our Las Vegas business if Rip Off Report would please submit a clarification in the title of the complaint to specify NEWPORT NEWS, as well as remove the URL link to glasshousekustoms.net. 

As many of you know, a potential customer may become greatly influenced by doing a Google Search of a business name, and it is confusing for customers to see our Las Vegas .net website and name associated with this negative report.

Glasshouse Kustoms in Las Vegas can be reached through email or telephone to answer any questions or concerns customers might have.  

Respectfully submitted

Webmaster for Glasshousekustoms.net and glasshousecustoms.com of Las Vegas, Nevada.

Not The Same Company!

AUTHOR: WebMaster - (USA)

I am the webmaster for Glasshouse Kustoms out of Las Vegas, Nevada and I'm here to alert any potential customers that Glasshouse Kustoms in Nevada has NOTHING to do with Glass House Kustoms out of Virginia Beach. They are 2 entirely different companies who unfortunately share the same name.  Glasshouse Kustoms in Las Vegas has been operating for over 12 years with excellent work and very happy customers. Glasshouse Kustoms in Las Vegas is owned and operated by a single artist known as "Glass" because of his proficiency and expertise in Fiberglass molding.  His skills are well beyond auto body, delving into custom body casts, picture frames, molded tables, airbrushed artwork, and acrylic wall paintings. He has worked with some of the top people in the industry including Count's Kustoms, done work for Vince Neil of Motley Crue, and Vince's restaurant "Feelgood's" presently known as "Vamp'd".  Glass is a respected and well known artist / talent who has worked on exceptional cars including most recently a restoring of a 1957 Ford Fairlane.  He has sprayed Lamborghinni, Hummer, and too many fancy cars to mention.  So again, THIS IS NOT THE SAME COMPANY.  Glasshouse Kustoms can be reached by telephone in Las Vegas nevada or on his website that I built.

New name of business

AUTHOR: Chief45 - ()

The scam artist and thief have changed his name of his auto paint business to GORILLASILVERBACK KUSTOMS in Portsmouth, Va.  If you want quality work and not get ripped off do not conduct business with this person.  He will lie and do very bad work or no work at all and keep your insurance money.  HE STILL OWES ME OVER $8,000 IN INSURANCE MONEY PAID TO HIM.

Here's what he did to me between July 2012 and August 2013.  I had to wait over ayear and go to court to get ny Corvette back in pieces, still pursuing legal action!!!

(Happen between 2012 -2013) I just wanted to change my regular door hinges to lambo hinges. I turned in my corvette to him on 28 July 2012. He drove my Corvette (without my consent) and got in a car accident. I was lucky enough that my insurance covered the damages and authorized $8978.34 on 8/15/2012. As of today I have my Corvette still in pieces and never got my car repaired (front/back bumper, exhaust, front lamps and other items) and or painted (candy apple red). Mr. Lesley Domingue constantly lied about "working on it" and never did anything for 7 months. He got kicked out of two shops and owe over $3,000 to one them and $9,000 to me. If you want to lose your insurance money, get constant lying and no service and lastly have this guy drive your vehicle without your knowledge and wreck it then he is the guy for you, if not then go to a reputable body shop dealer that will do what they promised and will not scam you out of your money.
