Dan, so sorry to hear about this. Barry told me yesterday. When I brought them up and they were in mine I had no trouble seeing out the side but they may have been sitting up higher in yours. Guess we should have taken them out of the box and tried to get them lower. Well a fresh paint job will make all the pain go away, just really glad you didnt get hurt. Just another accident I caused! One things for sure you will always have a story to tell! Best of luck putting them on. They went on easy on mine. Rodney

YEEKS! Shocked That stinks! 
Not to make light of the situation, but you're supposed to IMPROVE your car while at C@C, not make it worse! Wink
Sorry for the troubles, but you'll make it work for you.
Keep us posted on the progress.  (At least you already have your "before" pictures!)

Certainly no fault of yours Rodney!! All my own! Problem with box was i had no tape to reclose the box and flaps stood up and blocked view...should have figured out some way of securing them. I did remove the headers from the box and lay them on the seat with padding for the trip home but the horse was already out of the barn Unhappy

Wow, sorry to see this!  As everyone has already stated so well, as long as no one got hurt, everything else is fixable!
 
And PS  I'm in the market for a paint job too, maybe we can get a volume discount going, any others?
