In California you would have a complaint for the Bureau Of Automotive Repair for an improper repair order. EVERY item should be listed.

You know what cracks me up is when everyone blames the insurance company. The insurance company didn't repair this car, and insurance company did not paint this car. Yes, they are a pain in the ars. But the PAINTER is the one who didn't match the color.

I don't know the rules in your state. But here, you could "reopen" the claim being it wasn't repaired properly. And, if the color doesn't match, there is a good posibility that the repairs them selves were done improperly as well.

You REALLY need to have a shop who comes with some recommendations to look it over. You had some structual damage, the rad support was pushed over pretty good. Have the thing looked at by another shop. But DON'T TELL THEM WHERE IT WAS REPAIRED. Tell them it was out of state while you were on vaction or something. You may get another shop who knows the guy or something and that whole thing will mean nothing.
