I should be getting my car back within the next 2 days, what I want to know is there anything that I can do to make sure that the job is perfect? My dad told me to stick my thumbnail into the newly painted area in an inconspicuous area and if it leaves and impression then they haven't baked it or dried it right. Any other tips? I just want to make sure it is right!

The only thing I can advise is to get the car into direct sunlight and stand back about 10 feet, so you can compare original body panels with repainted ones. When my Mom wrecked her truck awhile back, she looked at the paint inside the body shop. Under flourescent lighting it looked like a good job, but once we got the truck under direct sunlight a couple days later we realized that the paint didn't match at all. Be ready to scrutinize every detail!

Definitely check throughly inside and out that everything is good. If there's a small pebble where they painted over, it's guaranteed that it will chip away and show metal. Trust me, I had that happen with all three parts that were replaced..hood, fender, and bumper. I'm going to head there something to have them touch it up, hopefully for free. Before you get in my situation, be very picky, it's your money!
