They want to take it in to the body shop.

Grr.. oh well.. nothing else has gone right today for me.

Looks like I've got an appointment with a body shop to fill in all those holes and re-spray.

Sure

The front ones, you just turn a 1/4 rotation counter clockwise and they come out. The one by the rear door, it's a square hole. I had to drill that one out. Either that or I guess take the door panel off and pinch it from behind.

It's on my list to do when I get some extra green to blow. I think to do it right it'll still cost me like $400. (Teins + rear camber adjusters)

I wonder why they didn't make the side molding an option on the sedans.

Yo G, it's an EX w/o Navi. Sticker was 27k. But since I traded in my '01 Civic EX Coupe 5pd @ the time I didn't get an exact sales price. Taking into account how much my Civy was worth and how much they gave me for it, I fiigure they sold the Accord to me for ~25k.

First auto shop estimates 1 week of work ~$1,650. Said they'd either tack or glue on a strip, would rather not have to mud it. He was figuring since I have a dark color car they'd only have to blend in an inch or so above and below... hopefully won't have go do the whole door, quarter panel, etc etc.

Why not just put the moulding back on? IMO $1650 for no moulding is rediculous.

Yeah, oh well.. kinda how I feel about people with gody looking body kits

I'm bent on not having molding, and I can afford it, so.. as Soup Nazi would say.. "No moulding for you"

I wouldn't trade the sleak look for the door-ding look on my wheels... too many a-holes out there that don't give a crap about the side of YOUR car!

... I had a Saturn with the plastic panels... it was funny seeing all the scuff marks on the doors without permanent damage. I always wondered if people intentionally hit my car to see if it worked like the TV commercials.

I park my Accord in places where people have to go out of their way to damage it. I also carry toothpicks just in case... payback's a biatch!

Hard for buddy to get back into his piece of crap if the door locks don't work for some reason (this is were the toothpicks come in handy)... obviously this doesn't work on new cars with remotes but the real sh!t boxes it works wonders.

for revenge on the owners w/ remotes....just go to a auto parts store and buy a valve core remover (it takes that little nub out of the valve stem so all the air goes away and no slashed tires)

Actually... it's been in the body shop for the past two weeks. They were having problems getting the paint to match and didn't want to have to shoot the whole side (woulda been an extra $500)

Should be ready either tonight or tommorow, I'll probably start a new thread with pics
