  1. Yeah that's what my .......was for. This is why we can't have nice things
  2. ...... crap, I completely forgot to get some pictures, I'll try and post some this weekend.
  3. I picked up the car today. They did a really good job on all of the paint and the dents. They did a good job fixing up the rust also. I'll try and get some pictures soon.
  4. Yeah, they're pretty busy and they only have a few kids who are skilled enough to work on customer's cars. I'm REALLY hoping I'll get it back by the end of this week, we'll see.
  5. Yeah I was just expecting the rust spots. I told them they can do whatever they want on the car though. Yeah looks like they repainted the entire back end, it sure does look really good. I'll have to ask what they're going to charge me again, but when I dropped it off they said around 350 for labor. They also stated multiple times that most of the price of the job would be the materials, so let's hope I'm not charged too much. As for being satisfied, heck yeah I am! Looks like a new car. I'll have to wait and see the other spots. Once I get the car back, I'll have to take before and after pictures of everything to show what they did. This definitely wouldn't be worth it at a normal shop, but for cheap, why not. Only thing that sucks is having to wait so long. I'm probably going to get it back the weekend of the 21st.
  6. Update: This is not related to the repair in question, but a different one. The car is almost done, and I've started to get some pictures of it. They've taken care of other cosmetic issues as well. They redid my back bumper and they sent me a few pictures yesterday. This is before https://drive.google.com/open?id=1z33YETX6iUFbVSGBN1Mh2yIltX0cLtyu https://drive.google.com/open?id=1q8LRU6-KlTdlUkeE_BZx0S2w2OThpGST This is now https://drive.google.com/open?id=1Yuk38M9Eeek58y1dGr1jAiHvaOXo4eWH https://drive.google.com/open?id=1MJIdGlsHi4kxnmzT4LqRwL-QANrn-7or Looks pretty good I must say!
  7. Hi there, When buying a used car, there is always a slight risk. If there is no warranty on the car, best thing you can do is give it a good inspection and a good test drive. It might be a good idea to have a mechanic come look at the car also. Make sure to inspect the body panels and undercarriage also.....you want to be wary of rust.... If you end up buying one from a dealer, try and get one with a warranty if you can. That way you can be sure if you have any problems they'll be covered. Good luck in your search.
  8. That thing is just......dear god. I don't like most suv and crossover things in general, but that Ferrair SUV is even worse in my opinion. Some companies just need to stick to cars, you just can't make a sporty SUV in my opinion. It does not work.
  9. As for the weather, it's currently quite nice right now. It reached like 50f today. We've got like 6-8 inches of snow on the ground. We need some rain to wash all the salt and junk of the road. As for welding, youtube has helped alot. It doesn't really seem SUPER difficult, just rather and the fact that you certainly won't want to screw up. Plus I'd need a welder and all that equipment, and also an enclosed space to work on the car.
  10. well...thank you so much Nate, that's mighty nice to hear!
  11. Would you mind taking a picture of the fin? Some sort of glue must be holding it on.
  12. Make it a sleeper. It'd be pretty funny.
  13. Hmm Cobalt Coupe maybe? As long as it's not an SS you'll be fine.
  14. I've got a Cobalt Coupe, I like it alot, maybe that would interest you. Perhaps also a Toyota Celica or a Toyota MR2 would interest you also. All of these cars would be fairly fun to drive if they're a 5 speed manual, I think they look decent, and they're not too hard or expensive to work on.
  15. In the meantime, I've been researching welding. If I'm going to become a car enthusiast, I want to learn how to weld in order to avoid any future problems like this. Buying a welder would be expensive, but if I can learn how to weld it'd be well worth it. Living here in CT, if you buy a used car 10+ years older, most cars you find are going to have varying amounts of rust on them unless you get lucky. Amount of salt they use on the roads in winter here is absurd.
