W210 Body work, paint and perch reinforcement

Just got my car back from the body shop. I think it looks great! A few things they did:
-Front left fender had a dent in it from a deer running into the side of my car. -Front right fender had some rust behind the wheel well.
-The hood had typical paint chips from highway use.
-The trunk had a little rust above the license plate.
-I had them put the additional reinforcement panel on my driver's side spring perch. The passenger side perch failed earlier this year (which I documented on the forum). The additional reinforcement panel is the one Mercedes issued for the bullet proof vehicles. Stock driver's side perch was fine and this new one was welded in and covered.
-I also had extra trim pieces for under the headlights and a mirror cover. They painted those so I have extra parts.
