Under the Knife

19 Aug

 

Here we are at Richmond Auto Body in Amityville NY.

I have some photos of the initial damage-inspection and repair of our once flawless Mazdaspeed 3. Hopefully, it is resurrected to the same quality…

In the end, the hood and roof were replaced with Mazda OEM pieces. Paintless dent removal will be used to repair the dings in the fenders, doors and hatch.  Unfortunately, Bondo is required for one ding on the driver’s rear quarter panel and a few dings in the panel between the roof and the top of the door.

I’m skeptical of most shops, but this place was very, very clean (the mark of any good shop) and the people were friendly. The insurance company guarantees the work for as long as I own the car, so that puts me at ease!
