    There isn't really anything you can do to make them do it...Take it to a good shop that will recommend that the entire truck be repainted....but be prepared for a battle anyways. If there are panels without damage-The company isn't going to want to pay to repaint them...

    and all this will be around 5k? plus adjustments I hope? I wonder if they can do the entire paint job unless the shop is that good that the touch ups will blend nicely... keep us posted. Thanks for the pics and hope you get back to your "normal" life routine....

    Well the body shop call me on Friday and they told me that my truck should be ready on monday!!!! ("5/16/11") They found a few other things from the storm and they fixed that as well and got up with my ins comp and told them about it. So we will see if it is ready on monday. I really hope so i miss my truck very much and I NEED IT BACK!!! Me and the wife are moving this month so it really hard to move with out a truck and i hate asking people that i know with trucks if they can help me move. But now that my truck is all most done i will just have to get it back to the window tint shop so they can retint my windows and then shes as good as new!!! pics to come very soon!!!!!
