    I have an appointment for the body shop to fix the gaps and align the panels for this Thursday. What all is involved and have you had it done. some one said that when they loosen the bolts it will crack the paint and start the rusting. Is it worth getting aligned? Your thoughts? and the hardest part for me is the old girl will be driving Loki for the first time to and from the shop

    I had the passenger side fender lifted on my 2015 Challenger Hellcat. See the thread below.

    I called the body shop yesterday with my concerns about paint being damaged. I let them know if it involves any chance of cracking the paint on bolts washers etc I don't want them to to touch it.

    Damn pretty noticeable, did that happen over time or straight from the factory? Side note: I think your dog wants to play.

    real sad that the talent less employee responsible for this piss poor sizzy alignment job has a good paying job, and no talent or concern to do the right thing.

    was delivered to dealer like this i pointed it out before i left the lot. we agreed to fix it this spring when i put it back on the road . I took delivery on oct 30 and put it away nov 30. I wanted to drive it as much as the weather permitted before storing it for the winter. LOL yep the BBD just finished walking the boy down to the bus stop. he always takes that toy with him when he does this .

    Get it fixed. The possible rust will be someone else's issue years and years down the line. Great looking dog BTW
