My baby is in the shop...

Several month ago some jack wagon egged my R/T causing some damage to the paint on my trunk deck. I procrastinated getting it fixed as the whole insurance claim process is tiring. And wouldn't ya know it, the top of my left and right rear fenders were scratched up by flying roof shingles during Sandy

Well we finally got the claim filed and the car dropped off at the dealer to have everything repaired. This is just as scary as when I left my car outside during Sandy. I don't trust dealers, and my car is going to be there for a week

Hoping my car comes back good as new.....

"Jack wagon"...awesome.

Is the dealer doing a full repaint or are they going to try to blend in the rear panels and trunk lid?

Went to pick up my R/T today, and as I walked up to the car to inspect it I immediately noticed there are still some scratches in the right rear fender, and the spoiler

It's never easy....

Unbelievable that they missed that and now have to do it all over again. What did they say when you showed them?

As I have grown older, I've learned that pleasing everyone is
impossible- but pissing everyone off, is a piece of cake.

Did you check out the kind of work the dealer did before leaving your car? It doesn't sound like their body shop does very good work.

Odd question.

But yes, it is a huge, very reputable dealer/shop. I have had body work done there in the past without issue.

Well it took a lot longer than it should have, but I finally have my Challenger back

Most importantly it is back to its original form. Back to before being egged. Back to before being battered with shingles by Hurricane Sandy. And back to before having a cracked windshield.

They basically repainted the entire back 3rd of my car (trunk deck, and both rear quarter panels) The blend looks great, you would never know it was re-painted. They also replaced the front and rear windshield.

Car came back to me fully detailed too
