I didn't want to jinx the insurance claim, so this is my first post about an unfortunate incident late last year. A suicidal critter decided to end it all by jumping into my grill at high speed, cracking my clam near the plate holder. There was no other damage.
Now the good stuff. The front clam seam? Gone! I didn't shave the plate holder off because I was worried about weakening a brand new clam. I regret that. The shop also painted every
outside plastic bit, and the engine covers, a gloss black. It doesn't show in the pictures but,
, it looks so
much better. You sorta need to see it in person if you haven't already.
If you're in DC/VA/MD, here are the shop details. There's finally a an option that's not Criswell.
I went with Ferrari of Washington's recommendation: JT's Collision
in Eldersburg, MD. JT did a superb job with flawless customer service -- I told him what I wanted, he did it and took care of everything. Paint match so far seems flawless. I do have an issue with the aftermarket starshield having lots of bubbles, but it was installed 1-2 days ago so he says
and it's supposed to dry out in the sun. If not, he'll take care of it -- lifetime guarantee, etc.
