Ok. Two weeks of daily useage for shakedown tests to see if anything has moved or slipped. Having had to re-attach one of the rear wheelarch trims back on after it decided to spring off the clips, I managed to have a good look around the tailgatge in particular on Friday.
No water leaks, which is good.
I have a snag list for the bodyshop.
The main gripe being the two rubber bumper stoppers that are located on the bottom inside of tailgate are in very differently to each other. The drivers side one was fully screwed in, and the passenger side one was barely screwed in.
I duly screwed in the LH one as far as possible and closed the tailgatge. This results in the tailgate not sitting right at all, even with the new plastic skin panel on. In fact, it bears all the resemblance to the position that the original tailgate took on once it had been hit.
A word or two will have to be aimed at the Insurers and the bodyshop.
