After getting hit in a parking lot (while parked) by a crack head and two L O N G months in the shop, it's great to be enjoying the beast again. Some of you guys asked for pics, so here you go. I am amazed at the restoration skills of a good shop. If your baby gets hit, you should know that there definately IS some good shops out there that can perform magic on your car.

Wow, hard to believe the before and after pixs. They did a super job.

I hope you bought the shop owner a beer and gave him/her a kiss :15: :D

WOW!

That is amazing what new parts can do!

Do you know if they used only OEM parts, fenders, etc?

What was the bill? hmmm

I'm almost scared to ask

Glad to see you whole again...

Yes, I demanded EVERYTHING be replaced with 100% OEM parts. I was told that shops often use high-profit grey market parts, especially suspension components. So additionally, I demanded all parts be purchased from the dealer (just down the road from the shop).

The total cost was just over $20,000. Major parts included a driver's door, hood, both front fenders, bumper, steering gear, both struts, master brake cylinder, both front wheels, both front tires, and some suspension control arms.

Absolutely amazing and a top notch job! Glad to see you pressed your insurance company for OEM parts! I know people who get stuck in that mess with their insurance company for months trying to get them to replace with new vs. grey-market. Who is your insurance co.?

Glad to see the beast is back on the road and bringing back the grins!
