    Hello fellow Taco enthusiasts.

    This is a followup to my earlier misadventure post here: http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/2nd-gen-tacomas/128035-toyota-builds-one-tough-truck-tale-pics.html

    After nearly a month at the body shop I finally got my truck back this evening.

    Of course, we got the 3 most epic snowstorms of the past 17 years while it was in the shop. Hell, even the dome gave out.

    Now that it's back I predict sunny skies for the next several months. I guess that's a good thing considering the cost of the repairs.

    Final tally was $9700. The entire driver side and hood were repainted. Some 60+ hours of body work and 20+ hours of paint and prep work. Overall I am very happy with the quality of the repair. I told them I'd rather have it done right than fast. I guess they took that to heart. :)

    I'll post a followup photo or two when I get a chance when it's light out.

    I think they actually rubbed the new back on! C'mon snow! :D
