Car is 5 days overdue from body shop...
I have to preface this by saying that my buddy (Milbank Collision is a one man shop) is doing a LOT of work for free... he is fixing minor hail damage on the roof and rear quarters, a "key" scratch, two rust bubbles on the roof, and painting the entire top portion above the body line of my car a different color.............. all this for the money the insurance company gave me to fix the front end. This being the case, he has pushed my car off to the side a few times to take care of "real paying customers"
(The local 5-star Dodge dealer 'Gesswein Motors' doesn't have a body shop anymore. They take ALL of their work to him... he stays very busy).
I really don't mind at all since he gave me a loaner to drive while he has my car.
I was supposed to get my mustang back on Friday which obviously didn't happen... On Saturday I drove over (50 miles away) and helped him "try" to align the fenders and hood... it appears that my car was really messed up once before and the shop that fixed it did a REALLY quick and cheap job making parts fit. SO NOW he has to tweak a few things here and there, because the genuine Ford fenders and hood don't fit quite right. This is turning into a lot more work than either of us had expected.
So anyway... he told me "We'll shoot for next Wednesday". Ok, that's later today (it's 4:00 a.m now... I work nights).
I bet my girlfriend $100 that it still isn't done yet... I figure Friday. Maybe. LOL!
On an unrelated side note: He was REALLY VERY IMPRESSED with the replacement front GT bumper cover I bought from AmericanMuscle.com. He said that it is one of the better quality bumper covers he has encountered in his 25 years as a body shop owner. It is THICK and also it needed almost NO prep compared to almost everything else he works with.
My cocktail glass is in dire need of a refill... I'll shut up now.
