Found an audio installed on gumtree to install some things in my car. After he installed a new radio antenna on my roof, I noticed a crack and slit in the wood roof lining and also the fabric - about 5cm in length.
Wondering what my rights are in terms of paying for the damages to be repaired?

Hi Ryan, get a quote for the damage to be fixed and send the installer the quote with a letter of demand saying fix it in accordance with the quote or i will take legal action. Then see what happens. It may resolve the problem - though it may not but at the minutes that's probably your best course of action.

How did you go with this @Ryan2240? Did the audio installer have an ABN, etc.? (I know that these are not always published on Gumtree)
