Hi again
I went to see the car up close today and the door ding look like it can be worked out Had a talk with the body man, laid out the stripes and picked the paint. I had to go with the CGM to keep it all in the camaro family.I also did a few drawings of cowl lettering i am thinking of. I will meet with the vinyl guy tomorrow.
Hers a few more pics

The Dent Dr worked the dent out, if you look close you can still see it. The scratch in the area could be what I am seeing.I am hoping the GFX will come in tomarrow so we can get this paint party started.

Well the GFX is in and the car went to the paint shop today. I sat with the salesman and did the paper work today also. All I have to do now is wait for the paint to get done.I should have the car by saturday. I have to thank my wife for letting me get the ultimate anniversary gift.

That dent should have come out no problem. The guy doing the work didn't know what he was doing (IMO) and I would have them get someone else over there to get it fixed. Sorry, but delivering a car with either a scratch or a dent in it is unacceptable IMO. I've done the paintless dent removal a few times before and EVERY SINGLE TIME the dents came out.

I had hail damage so bad that I had a softball size one in my fender and it was taken out and I couldn't believe they were able to do it with using the paintless method. It needs to be fixed IMHO also.

My Camaro is finally home! All I can say is WOW this car is fantastic.Everything we did GFX, stripes, bowties, Engine cover and even the interior turned out great. I have to say this is the hottest car in my area. John Bergstrom (owner of the dealership)said he wanted it for himself ....NOT and he has a warehouse full of muscle.My salesman had to leave the car in the service department because of all the attention it was recieving.

I want to thank my wife Tina for giving me the opportunity to own (again) a car I loved since I was a young boy. I also have to thank Bill Tusler(salesman) Dave Ritchie(body shop) Mike (painter) Shawn (lettering) and the Bergstom group as a whole.The car turned out better than I could imagine the IOM & CGM together paint is the way to go.

I will post some pics, keep in mind that this car has not be detailed. She will get a full Ziano rub when the paint cures.
