Nice repair on the door. Quick service. Doesn't even look like it's been hit!

Oh no sorry to misinform you haha, these pictures were before the incident! Just thought I'd post my favorite pictures, the door is still dented but I'll make sure to take a picture of when it is all fixed up!

Speaking of that- could you please take several photos of the "before" situation? Close ups of dent, and well-lit photos of the inside condition as well? Do you currently have your Reatta at home? How is it getting to the Body Shop? The reason I ask- is if you could begin the dismantling process- and box up the parts- it would save you the Body Shop labor money, and make the transfer of parts much quicker, saving you even more on labor cost. Some Shops (very few) use a "Flat Rate" with older cars- because of the age, there is no computation of an "average job quote" (Book Time) to go by like a newer vehicle will have- so they will charge in 30 minute increments for work. Do you understand what I'm saying? The less you leave for him to do- the further that check goes, and Shop work (body or mechanical) adds up fast.

Ronnie if I ever get out that way maybe you could take me there and we can do it together.

Looks like a great time. Do you remember how many turns in how many miles ?

 

Cal.

I would be happy to do that. There are 318 curves in 11 miles. Most of them are really tight turns. People who like to go fast like it because In that 11 miles there are no roads coming in from the side to worry about. Just curves.  I have been there many times and I always enjoy it. Here is a link to my latest adventure on the Tail of the Dragon.

Yep. That photo was taken a few years ago before I got the chrome seven spoke wheels.

Ronnie should have said the BUICK 7 spoke wheels. Those Buick [and Cadillac] wheels have the best chrome I have ever seen on wheels. They look great and are very inexpensive when buying from a yard.

 Glad he [and I] bought them!
