Hey since you drive all kinds of demos, we should make you our inside line on the new features! Any word on changes for 2013 (maybe a new thread, if so)?

Well, finally picked up my car today.

I suppose it's as good as it's gonna get without repainting the entire side of the car again... stupid blue candy paint color. At least it's only something I'll notice, really.

I'll work on snagging a few shots in the next couple days.

Unfortunately, I really feel as though I've fallen out of love with this car. 30+ days in the bodyshop since I bought it in November, 3k in bodywork, and half the car's been painted.

Really not sure if I want to follow through on the plans I had for this car, now.

If cars are anything like women (they are), then you gotta love em though the hard times too lol! She's been though a alot, and just wants to know you're there for her...UNLESS you have a NEW car you have your heart set on! HA!

But yeah, I feel for ya too, I was only out of a car for two weeks, and it was only the rear bumper. At least it was a stupid animal and not a stupid person who should have known better that caused this crap.

That seems...low? Especially for all the work being done on a new car.

My Grand Prix brought home a higher bill once when I had some body work done to it. It exceeded the insured value of the car at the time.

Well, it might seem as though it should be higher, however, the bodyshop wasted a lot of their time and my time trying to massage the door back into shape before I was able to finally get the door skin replaced.

The full cost of the repair, with all of the paintjobs and massaging of the door panel included, may never be known. The car was painted 2-3 times throughout this repair process.

Here's how the car looks now. The paint finish is smoother than it came from the factory.

I think she looks damn good, although i'm sure you have you issues with it, but it looks like a blue candy bomber!

There's some overspray and rough patches in the doorjambs I need to get taken care of, but otherwise I'm pretty satisfied.

Just upset the factory finish was violated.

And of course, on my way to see family tonight, I saw a deer standing on the side of the road tonight. They're such stupid animals; no sense of self preservation.
