Not to sound redundant, but another fabulous job.

Really surprised the owner would take delivery of the car, considering all the scratches and wheel damage... You'd think the dealer would/should pick up the tab for all the work, huh?

customer picked up the car knowing about the wheels, the dealer gave him 2 new wheels and tires, but he didn't want to wait for 2 weeks with his car sitting at the dealer - it coule have gotten worse leaving it there; )

Good point.

Still, I would've hoped the dealer would pay for at least the work to remove all the scratches... In fact, I would've insisted on it.
