I appreciate the support and advice from everyone so far. I met with the regional rep this morning at the factory recommended body shop. It was simply a meeting to gather more information and allow corporate toyota to talk to the body shop and take pictures.
I was asked if I would be interested in some perks if I get the car fixed and keep it, or if I still wanted to have the vehicle replaced? I told them I would still prefer vehicle replacement. The rep also took pictures of my clear bra applications and requested a copy of my receipt for the work that was done.
I am guessing that I will hear more from Toyota later today. This was actually a very pleasant experience with the rep/ body shop aside from the hassle of taking the morning off from work to take care of it.
