Call Bills Body Shop. Ask for Randy. Let him know I sent you and give him the price quote plaza gave you. I'm sure he'll give you a better deal. I also have a $10 coupon I can give you. They warrant their paint job for 4 years, and you get a certificate for it. (636) 441-7191

Let me know how it goes.
Pat

EDIT: They are in St Peters by the way.

Here's the address:

4100 Shady Springs Ln
St Peters, MO 63376

Alright guys - Just wanted to share the good news! Got my car back today after getting the thermostat and belts (AC+serpentine) replaced. The temp gauge was a little crazy and heater didn't work at first but after a few miles it stabilized and the heater started to work again. I may need to check the system for air but its all good. The car warms up a lot faster too.

I also got the bad o2 sensor replaced. Hopefully this will eliminate the cel I had. So far so good. 3 sensors checked ready - I guess two are on their way.

Meyle control arms and powerflex CABs were also installed. Steering is definitely tighter, but not significantly. I guess it was too loose to begin with, but still a good upgrade.

Does anyone have a radar detector I can borrow? I'll be driving down to 4ngiefest this weekend and may need the help.

When do you take off your winter tires? And how many 4ngiefest do they have a year? I remember you meeting some other members that were also headed there a month ago.

zomg...car problems and computer problems abounded...

turned out that I had a brake line about to leak (right rear). Never knew it until they went to put my new wheels on and asked if my pedal had gotten spongy, and they showed me a giant aneurysm in the line. So a hundred dollars later and I had four new wheels on my car.

but did finally get the OZs put on, I'll get pics up when I can. and got the gf's birthday present in time, so that was a plus for me. And WTF is it snowing in april?

and zomg bridget the midget was a big louie's this weekend. very.... creepy show

RXP rider - CABs are easy... I actually had a shop do it... it was just faster that way... You don't need to go full CA but if you are downthere... might as well get it all done...
