Thanks a lot

I hope so man lol I spent a lot of money on it already. But I have a lot of friends that have body shops and stuff so I didn't spend that much on the work mainly on parts. They asked me $1000 to fix all the small dents and everything and paint the whole car again so I cant complain haha
