    Its been over a month since i put my HC into an icy ditch w/ 350 miles on it....finally got it back today

    they delivered it on a flat bed and even put it in my garage for me

    they flushed the underside of all the salt and even covered up the bright pedals to keep them mint....looks like a good job, but i havent seen it in the daylight yet and probably wont have time until thursday...i didnt pay them yet, so if i find an issue im covered....they had to buy a $6500 machine to repair the air conditioning system...there must be some new thing going on for 2015 and the Challenger was the body shops 1st car that needed it...sounds like that was one of the major delays....the stripe guy was also sick and they wanted him to apply the decal....i got VERY LUCKY and they did not need to blend the paint....all they did was put a new bumper on.....all the hood and fender paint is 100% original..


    how do you like the AAR Cuda Strobe?

    no blending of paint into the hood/fenders

    from the one photo you can see a color difference between the front bumper and the fender......i think its a camera/flash thing...i did see if for a few minutes in the sun and didnt see any color difference.....also if you look at the other photo you can also see a color difference between the back bumper too which wasnt touched...most likely just a camera thing trying to make a good photo at night and how it saw the different angles....

    on thursday i will pull it out of the garage and do a final color judgement.....this place i took it to is top notch......if they say it matches i believe it matches....ill take some better photo's on thursday during the day

    they included blending in their initial bid, but i was happy to hear they did not blend...i did not want anything blended unless they had to
