I’ll post an update when it’s back


How long did they say it’ll take?

If it's any consolation, since they did my dash there is no further sign of delamination -- so it seems the repair parts are good.

Good luck with that, but I wouldnít be too confident in that time frame. Mine took 2-1/2 weeks the first drop off. Then I noticed a small rattle, and it took another week to fix that.

All is perfect now, dash has been great.

Apparently they’ve done a few so far so maybe they can do it quickly now
At least I hope so

Yeah, it didnít bother me much. I wanted them not to rush through it and do a good job. Even gave the tech a nice bottle of bourbon when I dropped it off as a gift.

Might explain why it took so long! . hiccough!

Seriously, though, many of us throw a little something in for the techs (if we have good onesj. It cannot hurt to show them that their efforts are appreciated.

Treetopflyer, at least you aren’t missing any great driving weather yet. It’s been better than snow, but will get much nicer in a few weeks!

good idea. I have to go to South Africa for 10 days so weather looks good for the return. Double digits!!
Plus they have nice red wine... techs might like that
