      ***ATTENTION***ATTENTION***ATTENTION***ATTENTION** *ATTENTION***ATTENTION***

      It's David (FrankenCar) and I'm working with Leo (1 can 'rado) to set up another dent day with justin (West Coast Dents). He has done many of these DENT MEETS in the past and all he asks for is a total of 10 cars to make this event worthwhile for him and ourselves. I will start a list and if you put your name down.............CONSIDER IT A COMMITMENT to show up. If you don't attend and flake out...........Justin said he will charge normal price for you the next time you sign up. (DON'T BLOW IT)Speaking of prices, he didn't actually give me a range because everyone will have different needs and wants done to their cars. This is what he said: "I will hook up everybody that shows up and will be taken care of: GUARANTEED" He said if the dents are small, he can get them done in 5 minutes!!! 3 cars with average sized dents can be done in an hour. ***IF ANY OF YOU GUYS HAVE A DENT LARGER THAN A BASEBALL..........please send pics to Justin personally @ 415-378-5753.

      The meet will be hosted by Pure Grain German Bakery & Café in Downtown Vacaville Sunday June 24th starting at 8:00 AM. Pure Grain will be offering 10% off for anyone attending this meet, so bring your appetite! And that's for anyone attending - dent repair or not! So come out get your fill of German cars and German food!

      Here is a map of the location where we will meet: Red=Parking Blue=Pure Grain German Bakery & Café


      Justin does great work and hooked us all up last time - Thread here.

      And Justin's got the hook-up on professional mobile wheel curb damage repair/refinishing and paint scratch/chip touch-up. Let me know if there is any interest in getting any of this done - If there is enough - we could have that done too.

      Good news - Bear (Clear Choice Windshield Repair) will be coming out to replace windshields and do chip repair. He's offering killer pricing for us at this GTG with a MK4 at $195 and MK3 at $210. He inspects each windshields for imperfections and rejects those that are not good. The car must remain parked for at least an hour after glass install before driving. Chip repair is $40 and is covered by any full coverage insurance policy; they waive the deductible & he can bill them directly. Post if you need any windshield work!


      LMK ASAP fellas...............we need "10" cars.

      Worth the drive my friend..........Frankencar and myself drove 60+ miles for the first dent meet at Roy's place and it saved us $$$ in the long run.

      All I know is my "rare" Corrado is dent free

      Hey, that Bakery has fabulous food. Natuerlich kommen wir; aber klar doch!

      So if we find the dents - then we'll certainly have them repaired....
      Do come just to hang out and experience Martina's awesome service and food.....

      See you there, ...............

      Looks like the paint is toast on that one anyhow - might be a good opportunity to remove it, straighten it out, fill it, and paint it.

      Yep, BlueJ Sausewagen does need dent repair. Ordinary parking lot damage - door dents....
      Will be awesome to have fixed.

      Also - BlueJ needs a new windshield. Anyone else need windshield replacement or windshield repair?

      See you there

      Sounds like a great idea! Any takers?


      And the Windshield guy is going to be coming out to the GTG to replace windshields and do chip repair. We will need to know by no later than the 20th if you need a windshield. it's looking like MK4 glass installed will be right about $195!

      I will ask. It's a bit more than the MK4 if I recall.

      And is it the Trek you are bringing out?

      Edit: - MK3 Glass installed is $210
