Hopefully you get a great body shop that can do things right the first time

Dustin you have my condolonces.
I've been extremely impatient waiting for my car. I ordered in January and it is currently in transit. I don't want to experience getting my car and then having to suffer thru an accident; however the good news is you weren't hurt.

On another subject, I just can't decide on stipe color. I know I want hockey stripes only and was set on black. However; I've seen a lot of great white stripe pictures and it seems like the stripe of choice for ABM is white. I have searched but been unable to find an ABM with a black hockey stripe. Does anyone know where I can find one?

Yeah that was his guess, since he wasn't sure how long it would take for the parts to come in since it's so new. He did have some of the parts in stock already though, but some weren't even in his computer yet. I'm hoping it's just as good as new! Otherwise I will tell them to keep fixing it, haha... but I don't wanna keep waiting

Thanks! You won't be disappointed... once you drive it, none of the wait will even matter anymore... it's that good

If you've seen my pics, those stripes are silver, not white. I think the silver adds a great look to it, since it still has the metallic shimmer to it. It also looks very bright in the sun, sometimes mistaken for white. The white stripes are just flat. Although it's a little more classic, so many people are going that route. Either way, I'm sure you'll be happy

When my car comes in (hopefully within the next month?), I'll be adding black hockey stick stripes, or maybe dark metallic grey stripes. Here's how it should look.

The second is how I think the grey'll look.

Yeah. The top is only slightly lighter. I'm not getting stripes if they're not going to look basically black.

I ordered the ABM with silver rally stripes, was wondering if anyone has photos of one with those stripes. Been thinking of changing my order, which is still at 1100 to white rally stripes. Sure would love to see a photo of an ABM with the silver stripes on it to compare.

So many choices.
I've got a feeling pictures don't do justice to silver.
Dustin mentioned white is a "classic" look and that describes what I want. However, the photoshop of black looks great too. I think if I go black it would be gloss black.

Yea, I really do like the white, seen the silver in person and it looked great, but have reservations now...
