So the wagon needs new clear coat on the immediate front end (bumper/hood primarily). I'm doing some other work, so I went to a shop and got a quote.

I was quite unhappy, so I went to another shop. Cheaper, but more than I want to pay for. So I'm back to parts shopping.

Trying to minimize body/paint work, and life is just trying to say no. Fuck you life.

Custom SRT8 grill inserts arrive tomorrow though. Car's a big hit still though. Haven't found anyone who doesn't like it.

Do you know how tempting matte back is on the wagon!? If it weren't such a nice paint color to begin with, I'd strip it for primer black and call it a day.
