Dropped my car off last week, the driver's side door was scratched to hell (someone dropped a full trash bag or something on it), and I had a couple of good-sized cracks/dents in the rear bumper. While the door was getting painted, I had the shop pull the trimgard off, shave sand and fill the doors and fenders, and paint. I love how it looks now. I had them do my trim piano black, for the price I couldn't beat it, he showed me a preview today and they look gorgeous.

he forgot to take the s4 trimpiece off my "new" fender, he wasnt sure if i wanted it on there or not, so he just left it. next trip back he's gonna take care of it.

look like the piece ahead of the drivers door was left on on the drivers side but taken off on the passenger side?

Yeah. He wasn't sure if I wanted it on there, so he left it. I've gotta take it back for more work, so he said he'll take care of it then.

as for the oil filter, yes that it just road gunk. the rubber seal keeps all that crap out of the system.

Cost was $600 for redoing the pass. door, shaving all the lower doors and painting, fixing the rear bumper and painting/clearing, and doing my belt-line trim inside piano black.

Looks real tight for sure. I wish we could get body work that cheap here in Sweden. You must be stoked, looks super good.
