Was skipping the body shop a good idea?

    He could at least have used sheet metal screws.

    Some paper tape and a couple of hits with drywall mud would finish off the job very nicely. Be sure to use lightweight mud so as not to upset the front end weight distribution. May need an alignment to compensate?

    I would have drilled holes and used zip ties, but can't fault their method.

    Needs taping and sanding then some primer and paint.

    depends if the repo man is coming in the next 2 weeks

    I agree with the others - should have used exterior grade screws.

    This is a thousand dollar repair in a shop!

    Are you sure it's a repair, it looks factory?

    Brilliant in concept, bogus in execution. Some stainless or painted panhead screws would have made all the difference!

    Well my only comment would be... don't use interior drywall screws on an exterior project. Get some good ol' stainless screws so they'll hold up longer.

    The factory should have made it that way in the beginning. This is an after market improvement. Hopefully the owner continued his/her design through the rest of the car including the non damaged sections. Call it the "Mad Max" edition.
