Not to request too many favors, but I would love to see before and after photos for the PDR. I have been considering Dentmasters in Arlington or Detail Authority out of Fairfax (I think).
$225 is steep for as far as I could tell was a straight wheel. If you can find another local place or one you can make local you should be able to get minor aesthetic issues fixed for a lot less. The trouble is with machined areas they have to cut it with a machine that not everyone has. Full paint is easy.
I'm going to PM you my pdr guy's info. I'm sure those places are great, but I will never use anyone but him.
I tried taking before pictures of the dents, but I just can't seem to get them to show up. There's a bunch on the roof and a few on the sides. It's not the worst I've seen, but it will give him a full day's work.
The first car I had him work on was my Legacy wagon and before it looked ok, but people would mention some of the dings because they know how much I care about my cars. After he worked on it, it looked like it was fresh off the dealer lot.
If anyone else lives in NoVa and wants his info, PM me.
In other news, look what arrived last night:
Could it be???
The second wheel I ordered was wrong, of course, and after I sent it back the order never got cancelled since they were still trying to find a replacement. I never told them to cancel because having a spare would not be a bad thing, plus I never actually thought they would find one. Now to figure out where to put the thing.
I've got some exciting, and what I consider really cool, updates coming next week. Stay tuned.
