    Default $800 Colony Park

    I bought this CP from the local swap paper. Was advertised for $1200. Owner said it as a small dent in the back. When I got there it was smashed hard. The bumper was bent down about 6" and the tail gate was bent in. All the trim was dented and the door handle broken off. The right upper D pillar was smashed as well. I told the guy the "small dent" was about $3000 damage. I offered him $500 and he said no. $800 is the lowest. I bought it.
    I ended up putting 70-81 reflectors on the tail gate to cover up some of the damage. All used trim and door handle as well as a used bumper. The car was hit once before in the drivers side rear. The wood grain is peeling off from bad prep work. If anyone has a roll to sell, please let me know. WagonMan

    Looks good from here.

    Body work is really expensive. People don’t realize and just assume it won’t cost much. If that was the case they would have had it done.

    Finished the paint and body work on the drivers quarter panel. I installed the wood grain with the help of a body man that hasn't touched wood grain for over 25 years. It came out alright. Not perfect, but I'm happy with it. WagonMan

    NEVER! I love this wagon! On my computer the car looks light blue, but in fact it is platinum gray metallic. WagonMan
