          RAM Collision on Pandora has always been great to me, my family, and people I have referred there.

          Just to add to your list, then delete my post :)

          This is a good idea

            This is one of the best idea's i have seen in a LONG time.   Great thinking @Ænimal

            Hey Nish, forgot to add in there... Eastside Collision - 2 claims through me.

              RAM collision is owned by a spoiled idiot who gets all his money from his mom. He has been bad to me, and a couple of my co-workers. Go somewhere else. He pressured washed some paint off the hood of a company work van and didn't want to repaint it. Some fighting and he eventually did it. And he broke my bumper clips when he repainted it, wouldn't fess up to that. My parents have also had bad experiences with him, one of his workers put a long scratch in the hood of their Saturn, and they tried to touch it up with a pen instead of doing it correctly or fessing up about it. Some fighting and he fixed that properly as well.

                I don't think you were talking to the owner or you're thinking of a different place.  The guy himself is crazy old and his wife is extremely nice.

                That said, this isn't the place for refuting and whatnot.

                Carry on

                  x2  The owner of RAM collision is actually a really nice guy.   If there's an issue normally he takes care of it right away.  IIRC, his name is Glen.   Ive dealt with him a few times and he never came across as rude or anything.
