They were supposed to deliver the SS with the Spectre Werkes rear fascia installed yesterday, but true to form for body shops, no one showed up at the shop to work.

The fascia is completly painted and looks great. All they need to do is install it and the car will be ready. Over two weeks for this mod and still counting. I'm going through serious Z06 withdrawals. At least I have the forums to keep me company. However, I'd rather be out driving!!

David, I don't know what it is with body shops. I was hit by a nun in my dad's TR8 when I was younger (she ran a red light -- gives new meaning to the term "flying nun"). The car was pretty much wrecked, but my dad didn't want to scrap it. Anyway, to make a long story short, the bodyshop had that car FOREVER. I figured it was in their best interest to get it done and get paid, but...



I can't figure it out. It seems like some of these jobs are either "too small" (too frivolous to bother at first?) or "too big" (they might get too many other quicker turnaround jobs where they'd get paid faster to bother starting a long project?). Either way, I can't find rhyme or reason to why these bodyshops do what they do.



Good luck!

Today should be the day!!! That is if they decide to go to work. I'm curious to see what kind of excuse they come up with if it's not done.

Keeping my fingers crossed. I need my Z06 fix!!!
