I've been here before and it is not worth the argument. I already fixed and cleaned up the panels. I would rather spend the time on the car than fighting. I'm just going to move on. Sometimes that is hard for me, but this time is pretty easy. I have the time and tools to get this the way I want so that is the best thing.I'm not sure if they will be hosting Zip Tie Drags next year. I can't find anything either. We will fore sure have to get together if I come out that way for the event.
That's awesome that there were 3 Elcos at the show and shine. Especially a 1st Gen. If I were you, I'd have them pay for the door panels. That's unacceptable for them to break parts and have misaligned panels because they were rushing. A paint job is just as much about the FIT as it is the FINISH.
Take your time with the small stuff, and like you said, get things back the way you like it. That's what's important.
