you can get him in the pocket.. If he or his Tech are ASE certified, if you can prove and have documented everything, I was told you could have them "investegated" by "ASE" again, so I have been told never done it or seen it done.... I ran auto shops for years and when we "F*^$ED"up... we ate the cost of repairs. Any shop with morals would do the same thing.. I would submit a claim with anyone who will listen.. BBB, CARR, anybody hes is associated with... if you want to be a bit risky.. contact the local parts suppliers (orielly or also known as first call, pioner parts, ccap, the zone, exxcell, ect in the area) and ask them if they supply said parts and tell them that the shop is blaming the parts and untill they provide the supplier you are forced to include them all, this happened to a shop I worked for when I first got into auto shops.. yea it'll get attention real quick when he cant get parts. But it may bite you back.
you seem to be taking the high road on this and I give you props for that... I wish I could say I would do the same... mines old beatup and grumpy... but I dont drive her becouse its just a ride... Its a FSB... Dents give caractor but dents from so called professionals.... yea I agree with the moltove coktail idea...
When in doubt... use more duct tape...
