I had a friend do this exact thing and when the dealer refused to pay up because they wanted their own hacks to fix the car, he sued them in small claims court and won. He brought it to me and I charged that dealer $95 an hour to fix that car, which is what I charge to do what I normally do in the IT field. Needless to say, that dealership didn't make that mistake again.
Thanks for the advice!!

That Corvette's gotta be one of the few best looked after ones out there...

Junkman, great information and videos, ive learned so much!

Just wondering what you would recommend as far as portable working lights to inspect your paint for swirls and etc.? I would preferably like a standing/tripod light instead of a handheld light. Thanks

The halogen light stands that they sell at every hardware store and wally world will do just fine. Those things are not made to last so don't be surprised if you have to replace them every year or two. They're pretty flimsy but they get the job done.

Not true. I haven't voiced an opinion because I hadn't had a chance to use them up until this past winter. I have a bunch of irons in the fire.
