i actually just cleared it up with them. i called the dealership and he gave me 15% off and it came to 660 before tax. so i called the body shop back and they said they'll be able to get more off from them. apparently they called a different dealership and it came to $900. and they know exactly who i talked to and stuff. also they said i'll be able to have my car by this weekend. :yay! and they are going to paint my front bumper. yay!

can't wait!

For grilles, just go out to home depot and buy some plastidip. Just spray a couple of coats on em, no prep or anything needed. Nice thing about it is you can peel it off if you decide to go back to original color which I assume is chrome.
