If you cannot make it for the group session, I'm sure he will still
charge you as part of the group.
good looking out!

When is this suppose to happen?
I don't have a very flexible schedule and it may be hard for me to be with the group at an exact time and place.

Hopefully i'll get to meet some of you someday.

Progress report:

I met today with Carlos. He works near Laurel so I just went
to the shop he was at today.
Nice fellow, eager to work for us.
He can go mobile so we just need to tell him where and when.

He took care of 3 bumps for me in 2 panels (rear door and hood)
Nice job. I can't find where the bumps were now.
I took pics of the before, but they did not come out right.
and pics of after... you can't see anything wrong.

One thing to clarify. He does not do scratches.
Chuck will do that. One of my bumps has scratches. Now I only have the scratches.

So, sign up if you want bumps or scratches gone from your beautiful car.
I think I'll wait until monday to see who we have and then move to
the next step: set time/date/place for this session.

I got some sizeable scratches on the underside of the front bumper...was avoiding a large metal piece on the highway coming back from Florida...there's 2-3 long scrapes under the front lip (not visible unless you crouch down and look up underneath, but they still bug me).

Can I get on the paint fixing list...?? Who are these folks and what's the approx. costs...??

Scott,
Go read post #1 to get an idea on cost.
Chuck was recommended to us by Swoop. Chuck does work for the
Acura dealer in Bethesda as well as Carlos (bump repair).

If interested, add yourself to the list and we will decide on a date/time/place
next week.

That's 2 panels.
You are looking at $150.
If we do a group session, the cost might go down a little.
I'll add you to the list as "tentative"

I thought you said the Dents weren't going to get priced until after he sees it...

If the dent does not require paint and can just be pushed out from the inside,
the Carlos can do that.
If what you have requires paint, then Chuck will have to see it and price it.

I was just trying to give you a ball park idea of cost.

Ase,
No idea if he can do that. Better call him.
His name is Chuck and his cell is 240.793.9403

He is mobile so it's a matter of discussing to decide the "where".
