  1. Bubbles and Door Hinges in MI

    Lafontaine Body shop in Fenton did mine. It took some time (5-6 weeks). The results are good so far (completed in August '21). Only time will tell on how it will hold up. Mine originally started bubbling at 5-6k (tailgate hinge first, then door hinges and one hood hinge) and it went in at 19k...

Also, for your timing, keep in mind the scale of the issue, the time and capacity needed at these body shops and...

    For anyone interested good article below.

    Hi Ted, Assuming you have your Jeep back, how's the repair result? Any comments from the body shop on expectations of the issue recurring. Picking mine up hopefully next week, so we'll see how it goes.
