Yup that's what I'm expecting. Why I don't even want to fit the battle but I will.

Had the paint on my Muscle do the same thing. The dealership back east told me it was my fault for removing the seat but could not explain why the paint from the fender was sticking to the bolts and bubbled up in other areas. Got out here in Michigan, and the dealership took care of it. A number of fenders were not primed and resulted in the paint falling off. Sometimes you just get a bad egg, however, it's up to them to correct it. It's worth the discussion with Drag.

That service department was the reason I started discussions with the dealership to get my RGU. I'm subscribing because I want to know if I am getting anything from Drag in the future.

I'll definitly let you guys know how it was handled. My indy is closed today so tomorrow morning I'll be getting on this. I'm just pissed because even if they do get me new parts I have a feeling the same ol shit is going to happen to them.

Really interesting. I love the stuff I learn from reading this forum.
