    Perfect. The paint matches perfectly. I'll have a closer look later to see if there are any defects, but I've had these guys repair one of my older cars and they did an excellent job. All of the panels line up perfectly.

    I did, however, get the old wheel back, and I'm glad I did. I'll use this as a spare. It is worth noting that these wheels are very expensive. The one that I got as a replacement cost $186, and it was a remanufactured wheel! I don't want to know how much these wheels are brand new.

    By far the most expensive part of this repair was the rear axle/beam. It was somewhere north of $800, and that too was not a new part; most likely pulled off of a junkyard car.

    I'll get a price list of what was repaired if anyone is interested.
    Do you see an Alcoa pin stamp somewhere on the old wheel?

    Yes, because I assume it has no tire on it now? I'm not particularly concerned about that one wheel, but I just figured it'd be easier to see since the tire is probably off.

    Quick side note. Spraying with silicone spray is worthless. I know it is easier so that is why they do it, but dielectric silicone is the best choice for the squeak. It won't wear off in 2 weeks.....LOL.

    I might have asked this all ready but local curiosity prevails: where'd you take her for the work?

    Ah, yes. I'll check tonight. The tire is indeed off.

    Car might be going back to the shop. Found several defects in the work they did that I think is unacceptable. Imageshack is refusing to cooperate right now, so I'll get pictures up once the website starts working again.

    As an overview, the pass tail light does not line up with the rear back-up light. In the top right corner of the tail light, the tail light has no clearance to the rocker and is actually rubbing the paint off the rocker.

    Furthermore, they left a 1/2" gash in the paint right next to the fuel door and just touched it up with touch-up paint, which is very clearly visible.

    On the passenger side of the bumper they replaced, they did not paint the bumper correctly, and there is a long 3-inch strip of spiked paint that has a rough texture to it right along the body lines.

    Those are the biggest issues for now. I sent the shop an email, which the manager also got, and am waiting for a reply from them.

    Alright, here we go. This is the driver's side tail light. This did not get hit and seems to fit exactly as it should.



    By comparison, this is the passenger side tail light. Notice the upper right edge.



    A closer look shows where the problem lies...



    Yep, the tail light is rubbing the paint off of the edge of the fender. Here's the bumper I was talking about:



    And the edge of the driver side rocker:



    Notice the alignment of the tail lights against the top of the trunklid and top of the rear rocker. Also notice the alignment of the rocker relative to the trunklid.



    Now, notice the same alignment on the passenger side:




    I couldn't take good pictures of this, but the vertical alignment between the trunklid and the tail lights/rocker isn't even either. It's pushed in a bit on the passenger side, and pulled out a bit on the driver's side. Not necessarily something everyone would notice, but I have a bit of an eye for this.

    Lastly, the two gashes next to the fuel door:



    I sent all of these pictures and their explanations in an email to the body shop, and they are having me bring it back in tomorrow morning and will put me in a rental car.
